Hunted Park = leftovers

I sold my equinox 800 last summer and missed it. I decided to buy another one recently right before price went up. I used the military discount. Good deal.

Took advantage of the perfect weather yesterday and went to a park that had some buildings on it in the 30s, 40s. Equinox did not disappoint. Nothing crazy but I was working around plugs from someone else who recently detected there. I found clad, 6 wheat pennies from 1920s to 50s. Play money 5 cents and a 1945 S war nickel. The war nickel was terrible out of the ground so I soaked it in lemon juice over night. First silver of 2021? Lol. Thanks for looking.

P.S. I was using 11 inch stock coil. Park 2. 5 tones. Recovery 4. Iron bias 0. Nickels i had come in at a high tone.

Hey Goondock,

Nice job on the finds and congrats on the re-acquisition of an 800.

Your park setup is similar to mine. In parks with plenty of conductive trash, I use Park 1, 5 tones, and have my nickels (12-13) set for a higher tone so they are easy to differentiate from foil (below) and tabs (above) and then let the 800 do the work. I listen to all targets, whether ferrous or non-ferrous.

My 800 does a very nice job of finding those difficult targets missed by others. And yes, about silver war nickels. Good find. I like silver dimes, quarters and halves as well. thumbs up Some count the silver war nickels as silver coins, others don't. It's your list, do it whichever way YOU like.

Yes, not sure what kind of detector they were using. It was fun. N/T
