Wet drizzly hunt..
 
4 Attachment(s)
I snuck out of the house yesterday while the wife was shopping.. it was our 11th wedding anniversary something I never expected to reach :D

Ground was nice and soft from the heavy rain the previous day...

I was hunting very slowly with my MXT and the SEF 8x6 coil in the heavy iron and nails of a property I have permission to detect... came up with a few nice coins...

Also last picture is from my last 3 hunts at different permissions I have.


Sorry for the picture quality.. wife broke my good camera and replaced with a garbage camera... :roll: One of these days when I have more time I will replace the POS one she bought for me..

I have found plenty of deep silver.. this hunt it wasn't too deep about 6 inches on average.. what makes it sweet is knowing others have hit this same spot with their high end machines and missed these silvers.. :D

I only hunt in relic mode, 2 tone, +3 on the Gain... anything above iron I dig..

Thanks Earl... I had a Fuji that she got wet... put it in a back with a open bottle of soda:roll:

I have been swamped with things all spring now... renovating my moms house besides trying to get my work done with all this rain we are getting... last year we were dry as a bone this year everything is super wet.. I haven't picked up my water machine in almost 2 months now... I am also helping out a friend with her father who is 90 and had heart surgery... she can't get him in our out of bed so its my weekend job... home health aids don't wan to work on weekends :roll:

It looks like some kind of buckle on the front under what looks like a captain of a ship is a WW1 destroyer or battleship... its copper or brass.. I would like to clean it up but I am afraid to lose the patina..

I thought it was a cow until I cleaned it a little... its chubby lamb and is marked England.

I was hoping for a D on the merc but wasn't meant to be.. those coppers are smooth KG half pennies I think... I'm not expert as I usually beach hunt but they are the same size of the half pennies I found with Mark early in the spring.
