Went to the same location where I had 42 quarters. I used the same settings, but this time I swung the Samurai sword 15" coil. I had a bit more time today (11:20-1:20), but the humidity was really oppressive. No mosquitoes this time because they don't even want to be out in the Florida heat!
I believe 55 quarters is a first for me in 2 hours. If I were not the one going up and down all those times, I would not believe these coins all came from 2 hours of detecting. Most were within the first few inches, so they were a quick dig. With all the stuff dug, that is an average of about 1 item a minute. I think I know what I can save up for...knee replacemnts!
I left a scad of dimes in the ground, so there are still plenty of targets for my friend. 😁
The bracelet was a STRONG 9-10. It looked amazing coming out of the ground, but it was not silver. There was also an iPod Nano, but my son snagged it in hopes of cleaning it up.
Now, time to focus on the jewelry!
I had a rather awesome hunt today, scored a barber grand slam and a dime trifecta... Started the day hunting after a 6 1/2 drive to my old stomping grounds. First site gave up the barbers, rosie and a wheat.....
Ending the day by doing a test hunt at a backup spot, looks like both are going to produce very nicely. Scored 2 wheats and the merc in 30 minutes....
Found the barbers with the Equinox 800 and the others with the CTX....
My wife kicked me outta the house for 8 days....so...I did some research close to where I grew up and arrived today for nothing but digging, eating and sleeping
First spot was across from the old railroad depot next to a dried up man made lake from back in the day.....
Second hunt was an old city park.....
i am having fun experimenting with Equinox settings, but ever learning the tones, and feeling a bit more confident. Late 1700s farm house with tons of modern trash gave up the 1901 Barber dime, sterling watch back, and Philadelphia & Reading railroad button. the rings and Rosie were from a natural spring swimming area. The 1905 Barber dime i got yesterday from a large field I have been hunting for about 7 years. Two Barbers within 2 weeks is rare for me....then topped them all off today with this 1853 half dime. My first one of those, and so nice to fill another slot in my Type book of dug US coins. been a really sweet year with finding coins. thanks for looking. HH
