    Steel & Wheat Penny Spill

    I made it out to a park for a little bit this evening in between the rain.

    I am three weeks in with the Equinox 600 and really liking the machine a lot!

    I found the Merc at about 8 and this penny spill at about 6 plus some other coins and odds and ends.

    I guess a steel coin would almost always be found in a spill. Have you found them before? You'll like the Nox! It's quirky but 8in dimes are the norm with it. Congrats!

    Thanks! This is my 3rd steel wheat penny I believe and all of them have been found in spills.

    Thanks Tim! Silver lining of the COVID is a lot more time at home and down time; with job travel restrictions. I bought the Nox a month ago and I now have more time. I decided to go with the Nox after seeing the great reviews and the videos, so after not detecting much the past two years, now back out a lot more! I am going to love that machine, I can tell already!
