Last day of October ... XLT ... a 1948-s silver Roosevelt Dime.

Yesterday, October 31st, I decided to take advantage of a dried out afternoon. I had my current production units along, an Anfibio Multi and MX-7, but it was the last day of October which had been "discontinued model month" for me. I've been evaluating off-brand alkaline batteries this year and my XLT finally was about done as the battery check just before shutting down the other day was flashing 'Low Bat' and read at 8.0 volts. I had swapped out the Harbor Freight Thunderbolt alkaline batteries for a refill of the same brand, which worked a long time in the XLT this year.

I had just slid in the battery tray and loaded my custom 'Bushwhack' program, so I decided to use the XLT w/6½" Concentric coil since time was short before dark and the arrival of Trick-or-Treaters. I did find 2 Memorial Cents and a Clad Quarter, but the XLT continued to produce last month and located a 1948-S silver Roosevelt Dime.

No witches spell, nothing scary about the late daytime adventure, and no 'trick' requested ... just able to 'treat' myself to one more silver for the month, and possibly my last for the year. That brought me up to only 11 silver coins so far in 2018, but considering I had so much down-time this year I am quite pleased.

These trusty discontinued favorites I enjoy didn't let me down in October, and now that we've moved on into November I think my next few detecting jaunts, if weather allows, I'll switch over to my two newer and current production models. One thing for sure though, I'll always have several discontinued devices along with me as well, and I posted this on the White's Electronics Forum especially since it was my XLT and 6½" Concentric coil that teamed up to brighten my month of October.
