I am amazed at the clever design of the probe.  Apparently the coil serves the dual function of working as a classical current transformer for the AC component, and it bucks the magnetic field created by the DC component.  The latter avoids any non-linearity or saturation effects from a strong DC magnetic field.  I really like it!
