Weather was just too nice not to camp this weekend here on the Wet side of WA. Off to a older camp ground that once had a apple orchard with a few old trees left. Zillions of pull tabs and can slow, but managed to pull a pile of coins including the 64 and 53 Silver Rosies. The silver came in on the first day, 20 minutes apart. I don't think I have ever had a 2 silver day, and the nox was pulling deep for our stupid soil.
Thanks for looking, and HH
Just curious how many folks would do this to get a coin? This was my first attempt to video a live dig, so please forgive the lack of professionalism 🙂

Got out today with the Equinox 800 for a short hunt. Not a lot of coins, but did find 1944s wheat penny and Malibu Castle & Showboat Fun Center token. I believe this amusement park was active in the 1970's, 1980's, and 1990's in North Holleywood, Ca. and closed and then burned to the ground in 1998. Correct me if I'm wrong. The live round was a PMC .270 Win. I have no idea how it got to where it was. Used my regular Park 1, recovery speed down to 4, and sensitivity up to 23. Also, first time out with my Fisher F-Pulse pinpointer which replaces my Garrett (black) Propointer. The F-Pluse definitely goes about 1 1/2 inches deeper on most coins and has a lot more features than my older pinpointer. It is much more powerful and does require ground balancing to operate smoothly. Anyone have any experience longer term with the Fisher F-Pulse they would want to share? Thanks.
Found this seated liberty and possibly the remnants of a large cent, could barely see a ghost of something that might have been readable at one point in time..... possibly.
Also found all the poison sumac they cut down the hard way so I now need to be more cautious searching.
Found this magician coin back in the fall of 2018, and wanted to share. Has a merc dime on one side and a wheat penny on the other. Still learning the MX Sport. Found it near a baseball field so I'm guessing some kid lost his dads coin. Would this qualify as my first silver or half silver?
Here is an interesting dig.
This weekend at my favorite lot site I picked up a signal bouncing between TID's 23 to 28. Never hit a 29 or 30. It was not screaming at me like the Kennedy Half I got there recently.
Since I pull a lot of rusted nails from this site, I thought this would be another nail or possibly a clad quarter.
Low and behold, a 1945 Walker Half on edge 4-5" under a pine tree root. I slightly nicked the rim with my Lesche....bummer.
I never would have ignored a signal like this but it sure fooled me.
