I just looked and next Friday, Saturday and Sunday look mostly sunny and mid-to-upper 40° range in Ogden, so you'll likely find a spot or two to hunt even before Christmas arrives. If so, all the best to you. And if you pluck another 1916-S, try to wish it be a dime ... Mercury type.

Monte,

Glad you were able to get out yourself and find a few keepers. I think my next trip will be to some place warmer. thumbs up

The 16-S was right near the surface, BUT, there was junk around that I assume was enough to make others miss. The Deus and x35 coil sorted it all out without a hiccup. Where I was hunting was hard frozen at about 5" deep. But a little sunshine can work wonders on South facing areas. cool smiley Once I had a look around this particular area, I could see that I was a late comer to the party so careful hunting was in order.

Of concern to me was a general lack of old metallic trash. This was an old area. Old dirt equals old targets; both trash and treasure. With the construction, a lot of dirt had been moved around so I was on the lookout for 'older' dirt.

Anyways, it isn't always easy to get out in the winter, but when cabin fever temps start getting intolerable, I've been doing this long enough that I know where to go to let off a little steam.
