My last couple of outings

September 05, 2020 01:30PM
First one is from a couple of weeks ago.
The cowboy looking figure below the blue lottery tag is a Hopalong Casidy pin from the 50's I think.

The second 2 pics are from today using the Vista X with the stock coil, gain at 20, threshold at 20, discrimination, just barely rejecting zinc pennies and the other at 40 with iron volume around 30.
With zincs discriminated out I was able to hit the wheatie's just fine. I did experiment some with the main disc at 40 and the second one just accepting nickles. As I heard a good low tone I would check it to see if I could come in nickle or above and sometimes it was a nickle and sometimes it was a square tab or a zinc.
the wheatie's were a good mix is D & S mint marks from 1948 - 1958 with the D's on the bottom of the 3rd pic. I also got a Canadian 1965 penny - my birth year.

Ooops, pictures are upside down.
