Welcome to the forum and to the hobby of MDing.Yup,once you get to know your coinmaster the better finds will become more frequent and then it helps if your in the right location,location,location of where the goodies are.
Good luck & happy hunting........................................... ...Back down in the dirt, it's

That machine will find the gold and silver if its over it. Just be patient and the more you
use the machine the better you get at it and understanding it. My buddie in Fla hunts the
dry sand with a CM Pro and finds a lot of jewelry with it. Good Luck Hunting.

Finding silver and gold is like real estate location location location

Yep... Everything the others said....you gotta get your coil over it and you have to become one with your machine...that takes some time and "practice, practice, practice". Sounds like you are doing the right thing by digging everything so that your brain can learn the results of all the beeps and noises it makes. One thing for sure, as you know your machine more and hit better and more productive spots (another skill you will learn if you keep at it) you will no doubt see the quality and quantity of your finds increase. Every hunt will become better than the last, for the most part, and you will forever be lost to this great hobby.

pakman... Recognizing the reaction of your machine to a given target is very important. You can't find something that is not there, so location is probably the most important. Good luck and welcome to the forum... Mel

I have a VX3 and I haven't been fourtunate enough to find any gold jewelry yet eithr. An old saying I've heard is "gold is where you find it."Diggin' Pull Tabs (Whether You Like It, Or You Don't Like It, Learn To Love It!)

thank you all, i do enjoy the hobby. i do reserch for the areas that i hit, that go back to the 1800's. found a spot and went for an hour, already hit a asian coin 8'' in, a 1940 penny and a 1965 dime. will be going back there to detect more, till i cover it all. will probally take me a month to cover the area.

I have the same model (CM) and have managed to findd some silver with it in coin form and even found a ring recently. Not gold per say, perhaps gold clad (?) but still jewelry . I think what the others said about location is probably right as well as persistence aka stubborness .
