Always fun to recover a 'V' nickel! thumbs up

July 23, 2017 11:07AM avatar
There's something about finding older variety nickels that seems to spark my excitement for an area. Maybe it's just the nickel's design (referring to the Shield, 'V' and 'Buffalo' types) or perhaps it's an encouragement to hopefully hunt up some silver coins that might also be lurking at the site.

I also hope you're enjoying learning the Makro Racer 2. Which search coil were you using? How about a search mode and general settings?
