Now that sounds like the sort of farm most of us would sell our souls for and we've lost count of the 'begginers luck' stories.
If you find a hoard, dont tell us. We'll all want to jump off a cliff. Shocked

Best of luck. Hope you enjoy and find. Grin

just make sure that the castle site isn't scheduled. If it is, don;t detect within the scheduled area.

happy hunting

if im correct in saying...I think the coinmaster is the new name for the whites prizm range.......

first of all discrim out nails....try and run sensetivity as high as possible......I used to run mine on 7 notches......if its still "bleeping" out of control ease back to six......if your hunting trashy areas put your discrim up 1 notch

there are nice machines by the way  Wink.........

depends on the beach  Wink  some beaches have a lot of coke and other 'hot' rocks and plenty of iron too.
If you find the detector giving off loads of seemingly random squeals and screeches adjust the sensitivity back a notch or two until it is quiet.  The rule of thumb is set your sensitivity as high as it will go without getting false signals.

Re discrimination I would recommend that you start with zero descrimination (or all metal) and dig everything. Listen carefully to the signal of each find and you will soon learn to tell the 'good' signals of non ferrous metals from the iron and also size of targets like aluminium drinks cans as apposed to ring pulls.

The more you increase the discrimination the more targets you are likely to miss and descrim also effects sensitivity and depth to some extent on some machines.
Have a great time
