1947 home hunt

June 16, 2020 07:38PM
I was able to get out after work today and start locating at a friends childhood home that sits adjacent to his. I was able to get and hour and a half or so in and was surprised that the deepest target was about 4 1/2" deep. The 1954 quarter was in between two pine tree roots and I had to lift the smaller, top root to get it out. It was about 2 1/2" deep but given the roots, that's not surprising.
The piece of Formica thinking rang up at 34/35 on the Deus. It has a foil layer in it that iv'e never seen before. You can see it sticking out just a little.
It was good to get the silver quarter and a 1943 war nickel. The wheaties are 1944 and 1952. The copper tube on the top looks to have had something crimped into it.?
The yard is quite small with a 1/2 acre garden. I hope to be able to hunt the garden but as yet I don't have his wife's permission to do so.
Deus Deep program with the sens down to 84 due to emi, otherwise stock program. It ground balanced at 82 and was a little sparky in some areas. I used the X35 9" coil.
I plan on using the Core with the 'Oor' coil, the Relic with the 9.5X5 and Simplex with the stock coil and then starting all over again.

I was also able to video chat with my 3 yr old grandson and did a live dig on one of the quarters. He was so excited that I told him a quarter was going to come out of the plug and then it did! The next one was a little iffy and I told him it might be another quarter but maybe not. Sure enough, It was a flat washer about and 1 1/2" around. I asked him if I should keep it and he said "no, throw it away" , so I did.
