Congrats on getting out for some detecting!

Any added excitement on that 1909 Wheat-Back, such as 'S' mint-mark with the 'VDB' designers initials? Any 1909 cent can always get our hopes up!

I've had to make drives over to Idaho from here in Vale, Oregon in order to find any snow-free areas to hunt. It has been a very record-setting winter for this region and a warm, dry spring can't arrive soon enough so we can be snow-free and get out hunting around here.

When I see posts like yours I am always glad to see folks are getting out hunting and enjoying this great sport. Then I wonder what general area they are in? What detector and coil were they using? What settings were used? Was this a detector they have had for a while, or is it a new detector to them an they are just getting out to enjoy learning it?

Let's hope we all have ample detecting opportunities in 2017.
