I've noticed that there are two distinct readings for the two different compositions of pennies. I dig every non-ferrous signal I get, and if it turns out to be a penny, I usually leave it for the next guy... But that's just me...

Nice blogpost, adambomb. Personally I like to dig them -- not only in the (apocryphal?) tradition of Ben Franklin: "A penny saved".

Also, as my friend Mike the Hat, a keen English detectorist, always says, "A coin is a coin." I feel like digging pennies is worlds better than digging junk, and it would be fun to join with other club members and donate our pennies to a nominated charity at the end of the year, even if it only amounts to fifty bucks.
