    Just getting started, about 6 weeks now. Iím pretty much interested in all aspects of detecting. My oldest find as of yet has been a 1945 wheat penny, nothing to brag about I know, but I know there are other things to be found.

    Hi, tramagod! What kind of detector did you start with? I started with a Bounty Hunter and learned so much with it. I never found a wheat with it though. I remember my first wheat was with an Ace 350. You never forget your first wheat
    I hope you enjoy the members here...they are knowledgeable and nice!
