Third outing hunting squeakers.

May 15, 2020 07:38PM avatar
I finished up my errands in town today and since I had the day off slipped back over to the WTHO Park I’d been visiting this week.

Last time I showed up the parks people had mowed the lawns, which was nice. This time, they had watered and most of the area was very soft which is nice for digging but damp ground seems to activate those deep rust nails.

My settings were again the same. Ground balance came up 28.

Today I was hunting deep targets or squeekers as I call them. Targets on the fringe in those last few inches of detection.

First target was what I thought would be a nickel. And at 8” with the help of the pinpointer I finally made it to the target, a 1940 Jefferson nickel. A few years earlier it would’ve been a buff and few years later a war nickel. Instead a really old Jefferson nickel.

Nearby were a brass grommet and a pull tab ring at the same depth. I continued on.

Thirty minutes later I came upon a deep squeaker I could not isolate well due to adjacent trash targets. I thought it was a deep nickel again and pinpointed in motion mode and cut a plug. Ah, roots. I worked around and finally at 8 1/2” up popped a V Nickel. 1905. Nice surprise.

I worked around some areas I covered the last couples visits. Nothing further. A very old tree caught my eye and I walked over to search around the base. Another deep target. Another root I worked around and just shy of 9” was a 1923-S wheatie.

I worked over to an dry area where the sprinklers seemed to miss and came up with the last squeaker, a Utah 1 mil sales tax token at 7 1/2”.

I also turned up 2 deeep rusty nails. Not surprising with the moisture in the ground.

I’d have to say I like these settings I’ve been working with. I say 2 thumbs up.
