Nice silver. Guess most people pay attention to the surf and coin line and don't consider the entrance/exit. That's where I found my gold ring, and foreign money.

Great finds!

We pay 'attention' to it all.  You just have to be at the right place at the right time and of course ... treasure is where you search for it.  The more places you search the more treasure you will find.

   Great finds MN!

   Looks like you keyed into a nice older layer! Since it's in the relatively stable dry sand, I wonder if you could rake down a few more inches in square yard sections, to get a little more access to it! At least that could  further identify an existing layer, and perhaps some more nice coins! Good luck!👍👍

The tractor drivers would frown on me making a trap for them.  haha

     I meant hand rake some small areas, not whip out the D 500, Parker!!🤣 Although.... I have been known to follow behind the beach rake tractor to see if he stirred anything up! 😁👍👍

I'm using the 15" to punch the top 8-9 inches of loose sand.

   Where those repeatable signals, or right on the edge of depth? I will reread your post again.....

  OK! Strong signal! Not too deep? Correct? The half looks like it's been there awhile; not a recent drop!? Maybe some single frequency swings, or one of the other multi's?

    I know!!! I'm playing "armchair detecting detective!" 🤐

  I've been restraining myself from buying any more coils for the Nox, until the Coiltek's are fully tested! I'm a little gun shy, with the coil tab issues I've had with the 11"!

    If you don't mind, post a closeup of the front and back!! Thanks!! Now go find another! That one look's lonely!😁👍👍

It was a strong signal and I think it was laying on the upper part of the hard dirt/pan that was down about 10 inches.  Part of the hole filled in before I took the picture.  I think it has been there a long time but it didn't dark tarnish like the other coins.

Earlier in the day I was at a play park and use 4khz because the sand box is on top of a drain tank.  Multi has to be taken back there to around 18.  The Franklin location doesn't really have any EMI issues.

I broke off the ears on my CTX 17 and put the shaft back on with a repair kit that includes zip ties!  It works fine.  What I discovered about making the screw too tight was that each time I touched it to the ground to flatten the coil for swinging it strained the ears.  It wasn't the sideways crunch that ripped my ears off but it was the rocking motion.

Here is the coin before:

And after an aluminum foil, vinegar cleaning:

It really kinda pops with very little circulation wear.

      Went out for a couple of hours this morning. I find that the 2nd day after a big rain (we got 8"+ in two days) is better than the day after. It was a nice day, pretty cool and the deer flies are finally on the decline. I loaded up with Cutter and headed out to the steamboat landing, I have been mowing small portions of it for access to the river and to hunt the dirt as well. Can't do the whole thing, it's quite a few acres.
      I cleared this ~30x40' space that I think was where a small building was, there is brick and lots of iron. It's a challenge to find anything so I went for deep iffy signals that were for the most part repeatable.

      I wasn't disappointed, great conduction today. Got the usual junk:
      Lamp parts, what might be gun parts, and shotgun shell ends. A couple nails. The round disc appears to be the back of a wristwatch, there are no markings.
      Dug a couple of wheats, a 1918 and one with no discernible date. The latter was 8" down under a root. Some chrome plated object, probably recent.
      The buckles were the most interesting things, first is a suspender buckle similar to one Chase found here, with a patent date:
      Second is what I think is from the 1700s, not sure whether it is for a shoe or knee:
      Unfortunately the rounded plate is twisted, I don't dare try to fix it.
      Last is another of the clip type buckles, this makes #3 and is the most spectacular of them all. I have the other half. This one is the most ornate:
      Got new headphones I'm going to try out there tomorrow.

      I've been hunting the yard of a house we have been working on for a few weeks. The house is the first or second house built in that town and has some decent history. So far I have only found 3 old horseshoes, a completely shot rusted pocket watch, a few pieces of lead pipe, a few newer coins, many rusted cans, and a ton of rusted chunks of steel. I was about to leave the job today and decided to search for a half hour or so. I was about to leave and decided to dig another signal that sounded decent. It ended up being an Indian Head Penny. I was pretty excited to finally find an old coin on that property. After rechecking the hole I ended up finding 8 more IHP in a space about the size of a table place mat. I searched all around that area and found on more less than two feet away from the first hole. They are in pretty rough shape. After only rinsing under the faucet, the top 2 show dates of 1891 and 1883. The bottom 2 are unrecognizable. Hopefully with some cleaning I can get a few more dates off of them.

      This is a rare day for me...3 silver dimes (first time ever)! I went back out for another hour at sunset to see what else could be found in the area I found the Barber this morning. I would never have guessed it would be another Barber day, and the first year of issue at that! The settings stayed the same, and the tones were about the same. I have gone over this area in the past, but when it gets hot and humid in FL, digging a dime isn't worth the effort sometimes. Well, I won't be passing up jumpy dime signals in that area again! It has been very dry here, so I will be hitting this patch of grass again when it rains and lowering the recovery speed. Also, I dug a coin(?) that is 3.1 grams(penny), and it looks to be squashed. However, the thickness is very consistent, unlike a train running over the coin. From one angle, it appears to say 1877 or 1827. Anyone have an idea?

      Went out detecting this morning before the FL weather fried my brain. I was out for about 1 hour, so that explains the heat. I went to a local baseball field and was getting deeper Memorial pennies in the shade. I got a scratchy signal mixed with enough high tones (50 tones) to investigate. It turned out to be my second-ever Barber dime! Thought I would share this mundane find (for most of the seasoned detectorists) because sometimes in summer there are not a ton of posts.

      my settings- 6.4 khz  Mix mode, sensitivity was 7, and threshold set at 1 ,  black sand on ,salt on and balanced to 39. and ground balanced to 616 .and was using the 12" DD coil I hunted a park ,where the old swing set was . and the soil was glacial gravel & sand.and i got a nice solid 18-20 and had to dig way down to 1" past the depth of the pinponter  and up comes a clad quarter. It was a solid 10" deep I was impressed. the other quarter was 7" . and i found several tabs down at the 10" level as well . but again small foil.  Also out of the hole came several egg size basalt rocks that did not seem to block the signal to my 10" quarter . So I know this machine can find the silver if its down in the ground  very pleased with the tarsacci

      Extended at the park one more day and I'm glad I did. Got a ton of practice looking at depth and analyzing targets before digging. Got really good at plugs.
      I only looked a bit around the farmhouse, got mostly trash and a couple of pennies. I did dig an old large cent, unfortunately no details. 😵 It's 1 1/8" wide, thick and heavy. Looks like someone tried to put a hole in it.

      Next I went to the canal and old dock:

      Coins everywhere. I also visited the volleyball court to do the other half.
      Didn't find anything stellar, 3 wheats, the oldest is 1924. Oldest quarter was 1967. 25 modern coins today! It was quantity, not quality. 😀 Feel like this was a beach trip, but overall it was a total blast and I met a lot of nice people.
