Way-to-go! Always good to get a 'first' for the yesr find.

It's been slow for me here in Eastern Oregon when it comes to silver coins. I am only at two for the year so far, and I have been concentrating on old sites that have produced the past few years, as we'll as two old house sites here in town. Pennies galore, it seems, with 50%-75% of them being wheat-backs. 23 of them so far this month, as of the 15th, but only two silver Roosevelt dimes, one part-silver 'war' nickel, and the rest modern coinage.

Sure will be glad when full-time spring weather returns next month. Glad you nabbed the Indian Head cent and Barber dime. Also, thanks for sharing the detector models and settings used. I enjoyed using 2-Tone the most with the MX-5.
