Congrats on the successful year, Brian!

Gold jewelry finds seem to be doing well, and yes in deed, it is really impressive when your US Nickel coin-count is close to the percentage of Dimes and Quarters. thumbs up

As we all know, Pennies seem to be found just about anywhere and everywhere so we have to contend with them. You 2017 Coin Tally 'percentages' so far show that Pennies account for just about the same percentage of coins as I have been find per-year for a decade or two.as your finds come to 55.65% so that's pretty typical.

But looking at the other coins found and the 'percentage' breakdown really shows how well you've done on Nickels. Generally, Dimes out number Quarters and Nickels are a bit farther down in the count, but this year, your count has been 17.10% Dimes, 15.46% Quarters, and a whopping 11.23% Nickels.

I know a lot of people ignore Pennies because they don't want modern eaten-up Zinc cents, but I take them all because Indian Head and early Wheat-back pennies fall in the same range. They also ignore Nickels on occasion because they don't want 'tabs', especially the modern rectangular pry-tabs, but me, I want the Nickels and all the Gold Jewelry and other neat stuff that shares a similar numeric VDI range.

Now, here are few questions for you. You can respond here, but the last one I'd appreciate you e-mailing to me.

Questions:

I believe you currently own three (3) detectors. A White's M6, Spectra V3i and MX Sport, is that correct?

Of all the detectors you own, in what order do they get used the most-to-the-least?

What is your one / most favorite search coil to use, most of the time, for each detector model?

Which detector / coil combination gave you the most success on gold jewelry this year?

One more, but I'd like you to e-mail this to me: What settings have you saved for each program in your MX Sport?

Thanks, and always look ahead to what 2018 might bring you.

Monte

PS: The last question is because I want to evaluate some settings used by a few folks on their MX Sport as I'm working up my setting preferences on my new MX7.
