Re: confused smiley Have you tested your detector(s) for Silver Coin Cache detection?

Well, I now have the requisite coins on hand and some spare time as we just were gifted with about a foot of snow in the past several days.
I took a couple of minutes just to get a quick feel for the test using my DeepTech Vista Gold, (25KHz) with 5" coil which was on there when I picked it up and it had no issues picking up the 5 half dollars on top of a 1922 Peace dollar.
I put a dug rusty barbell nail about 3 " to one side and swept the nail first then over the stacked silver with a good solid "dig me" signal. I then put the nail on top of the stack and tried a "down the barrel" lengthwise sweep and followed that up with a crosswise sweep and got the same positive response.
Based on these results I think the Vista Gold will prove to be a good ghost town hunting unit especially when equipped with the 5" round DD and the Super 6" elliptical DD coils.
The other units I am thinking about bringing to WTHO are a Rutus Alter 71 Ver 2.0 with 4.75" DD a 9" concentric, and a MARS Sniper 6x10" elliptical DD. Other potential units may include my FORS Relic, and/or the modded IDX Pro with the Blue Max 600 from Monte's old XLT, and the Blue Max 350. Any thoughts on these machines for old iron infested sites?
If the WTHO veers to parks instead of ghost towns I may bring my Equinox so Rich will know he is not alone and that I have his back.smileys with diet Dr. Pepper float
Cheers,
Drew.

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