Detecting Partially Masked Coins

...Then the Swedish copper coins began surfacing again!

My Coin Find #1

This coins were easily recognizable for their characteristic manufacturing defect - designs struck off center, on their surfaces.

Another Swedish Copper Coin Unearthed

Reverse of Swedish "Fyrk" - 1/4 Öre

Sweden 1635 1/4 Ore Coin

By now I had no doubts about the E-Trac's ability to detect coins and non-iron relics through the layer of iron junk, but still had to resolve an issue with the broken signals coming from the partially masked coins. These signals had a consistent sound pattern in most cases, therefore the nature of their faltering lay in the detector's settings that had not been properly adjusted according to the current metal detecting conditions, and not in positioning of targets in the ground.

I decided to think and come up with a solution while metal detecting. The coins could not wait any longer to be unearthed.

My Coin Find #2
