This is a genuine question which I suspect may have some good stories behind it. Smiley

Fresh cow pats always give a good signal on my machine-must be something to do with all the minerals.

When I found my 12th C Ring I had a signal not 10 ft before it unfer a cow pat.  I ignored it I reallt couldnt be scooping fresh pats.
anyway when I returned to that farm to get the GPS co-ordinates for the flo I remembered the signal and though what the heck! 

Turned out to be an Elizabeth i hammered Sixpence.   Roll Eyes    Gods Honest Truth......no Bull.

Always dig the signals, regardless of what's on the surface.
