I buried some coins in the ground - a couple of silver dollars, silver dimes and regular clad coinage. I buried them only about 1/4 inch under dirt. The detector would not pick up any of the coins.
Yes, I did understand the directions of how to calibrate the machine. I was able to calibrate it so that it picked up these coins on the surface, but covered with only a tiny bit of dirt, they went invisible. This is even with the sensitivity all the way up and discrimination down. I tried all 3 settings as well - VLF as well as the other 2 settings. No matter how I tweaked it, it would not pick up these coins that were mere millimeters from the surface.
I did pick up one thing - a large can buried 6 inches in the ground. So my advice is this. If you are looking for a large rusty coffee can, buy this machine. If you are looking for coins, jewelry or other small items, forget it. Save your money and buy a Garrett, a Minelab, a Fisher, a Whites... anything but this absolute piece of crap. I would rather have a Bounty Hunter (and these are not even that great), but even a Bounty Hunter detected more coins at a better depth than this absolute tripe.
I highly recommend you not wasting 100 bucks on this as I have. I wish I could get my money back from Famous Trails for this piece of junk.
