    Schenkl Shell-Civil War Relic-2.27.16

    It was a normal day besides digging the shell. Nothing else much to note. This location has seen decades of relic hunting.

    I used the White's V3, Gain 4, Single 7.5kHz Frequency, 10Hz Band, in Relic Mode with ground tracking locked. It was over a foot in the ground and rang up as a solid high tone, probably due to both large iron objects laying on top of each other in the hole.

    Excuse my ignorance (you'll get used to it if you hang around long enough )...but what type of shell is that? That come out of a canon? EDIT: oh okay, I just googled it....that is a very historic find! Was there a battle at that site? Congrats!
