Will your detector BEEP if you swing over a Silver Coin Cache?

December 24, 2018 05:33PM avatar
Funny you should bring this up Monte, as my very FIRST Silver Coin Spill came from high on a mountain under the 8" coil of my Compass XP-Pro.

2 Peace Dollars, a Walking Half, a Silver Dime and a Silver War Nickel. That was back in the day. Not sure I would call it a CACHE, but it did make for an article in Western & Eastern Treasures Magazine. Any-whoooos, the XP-Pro worked when I needed it to. thumbs up It was a very good machine and made some nice finds.

This topic came out a few years ago on the FBS machines. I happened to be using an Etrac at the time, it was popular on the X/Y screen to not-accept signals reading across the 1 line. The warning was that it you didn't accept these targets along the 1 line, you would also leave behind silver dollars which would often read 1/45 or 1/46 or similar. I tested some silver dollars and sure enough, with my 1 line marked out, the reading was sketchy with the cursor bouncing right up along the top of the screen. I opened up my screen across there and saved it.

A couple years ago, while hunting with my Etrac on the same mountain as a couple decades previous, I came across that 'silver dollar' signal and turned up a nice Morgan dollar, a walking half, a silver dime and a few other items. It pays to check.

As for checking my current detectors, I checked with multiple dollars and halves, but haven't tried your EXACT recipe of 1 Silver Dollar and 5 Halves or 6 Silver Dollars. Like you said, I've seen some funky things with metal detectors over the years, we'll see what this brings. grinning smiley

Is Recovery Rate directly related to this Problem ?

5 should work but 6 is what I use to match 6 coins in the Half & Dollar stack.
