  1. The day started out a little wet and rainy, but the sun came out and we got into the mid-60s here in Central Texas. Beautiful day for digging in the dirt. Stopped by an old school for about 3 1/2 hours, I don't think it's as old as I thought only 4 Wheaties from the 50s, the little Bull Durham pendant and a boatload of clad. Went over to a park by the river got a couple more mercs and two Wheaties. The last three hunts have produced multiple silvers, I've been very fortunate to be able to get my coil over some keepers.
  2. I'm sure everyone will appreciate all your time and effort in making your videos as soon as you get your unit. I do have a question, is your unit coming from a US dealer or is it coming from overseas? Thanks in advance for testing.
  3. The one merc came from the area right above the shoreline. All the coins from the dirt are in very good condition. I've hunted several other water holes around the area and none of the copper or silver coins were this rough.
  4. I'm not a big water hunter, although I do own a Nemo by Blu3 and will go into a lake or a river if it looks like a popular swimming hole. I'd rather hunt exposed dirt next to water because it's so much easier to retrieve the targets. These are the worst looking coins Ive dug since I've been in Texas. I think some farm lands drain into the creek and it could be the chemicals. This is not a place I'd go into the water lol. I do plan on keeping tabs on the water level for obvious reasons.
  5. Thank you. the worst part is the mud, it's a sticky gooey mess lol, clings to everything.
  6. We are in semi drought conditions here in Central Texas. I went back to the park that's been producing quite well. Today I focused on where the water would normally be under normal conditions. I ran my tone break right at 21 because the trash was almost unbearable. I may have left some nickels but I was able to pick up a few keepers. When I have more time and patience I'll go back and investigate the mid to lower tones.
  7. Sorry to hear that. I started the new year off with covid, I was very fortunate that it was the mild version.
  8. I showed the ring to my wife and sister in law, both of them said it gave them some weird vibes. I told them I was compelled to pick it up lol..
  9. Thank you very much. I'm not sure Steve, it looks like it's made out of bone or somethinglike that. It was laying on top of the ground in an area where I have dug v nickels
  10. Beautiful day here in Central Texas. I drove over to a park about an hour from my house and had a very productive day. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.
  11. I did spend a few days in my hometown in Northern Texas, dug 35 silver coins in 3 days of hunting. I would hunt 8-10 hours per day. I have a feeling I may have to do some door knocking back in some of the towns that produced. I hope the yards produce like the parks Being a married man, I'm used to hearing no ; )
  12. Thank you Steve. A few spots I would pull up and think to myself, no way is anything left, it's way too obvious of a place. You have no idea how many times I would shake my head in disbelief at what was coming out of the ground, I was stunned and that helped fuel the fire even more. I will add, not everything was deep, I dug a lot of shallow good targets and a boatload of crappy iffy signals that turned out to be keepers.
