three silver coins today w/Tesoro Outlaw..

Hey folks! Just wanted to share a couple pictures of today's finds.
I have been detecting around an old sledding area in my local National Forest and have had decent luck, finding gold then silver rings on consecutive days. I usually run one of my Tesoros (Bandido II μmax or Eldorado) with the little 5.75 concentric, as the obviously used sled spots are often trashy. Today, I decided to move away from those sled areas that I could see, and look for places that could have been sledding slopes years before.. Places with smoothly sloped gullies, no big trees in the path and little brush... There are plenty like that, which apparently haven't been used by sledders for a long time.
Took my Outlaw today, and figuring there may not be too much modern trash, I mounted up my 11x8 "Widescan" DD coil. I set my GB a bit negative (power balanced negative) and since there weren't many trash targets on those slopes... I ran in all-metal and dug whatever sounded interesting. Found a wheat cent, '40 nickel, two silver Rosies, and my first "Walking Lady" 1/2.
I'll be looking for more of those old sledding spots over the next few weeks. Less trash, and older coins than the currently used sled slopes offer..
