“New” silver - I’ll take it

June 20, 2019 09:35PM avatar
I came home from Nevada feeling kind of blue with only one coin, a memorial Lincoln. Yesterday a friend and I tried a place built in the ‘30s but only found clad.

Today I had a list of yard chores but woke up to unseasonably cool temps and a stiff wind so I put aside the list, got my coat and Deus with the 9.5 coil and went to an old farm near town. It’s my first silver of the year and it’s been a long time since I found more than one “old” coin on an outing. I still didn’t hit my annual goal of an 1800s coin within 100 miles of home but I’m getting closer,

Took a page out of Gregg’s book with the detector shot, no dog though. Then a few minutes later, a good repeatable 84, and a coin flipped out of the hole. I hoped for an old Lincoln from the size, but when I picked it up I was delighted to see the back of an Indian Head penny.

I mostly used a variation of the “hot program” with the X-Y screen: Disc 10, 3 tones, sensitivity 85, frequency 13kHz, reactivity 2.5, silencer 0, audio response 3, and pumping ground balance. I really like how comfortable the Deus is to swing, especially with the smaller coil.
