    I posted the gold bands I found this year and was asking for the price of the gold content in them, Totalling 225.00 at the then, current price of 24K gold, which was at 642.00 an ounce.

    Todays gold price was at 667.50. Someone could've made a profit, and gold keeps going up.

    I sold them all to one person on another forum for the asking price.

    I'll have more this coming year.

    Andy, I downloaded the user manual for your detector and there is no pin point mode for it. You need to use the X technique as described in your manual.

    http://www.metaldetector.cc/productimages/bounty hunter/bountyhunterTRACKER4.pdf

    The unit I have has an unusual technique to pinpoint. My coil reads targets strait down from all outside edges IIII, not in a V type coil operation like yours and some others. When I hit a target, I start a quick wiggle side to side about an inch and draw the coil towards me. When I loose the signal, the target will be directly in front and center. It's called the Minelab Wiggle:lol:

    Another thing is, because your signal goes down in a V patern, the deeper your target, the less chance you have of detecting it if you don't overlap your coil swing.

    Read the manual and practice the X pin pointing on a coin under a towel or rag and you'll soon get the hang of it.
