Default Hunting with Charlie

Found my 3rd silver of the year tonight, hunting in a trashy yard.

My learning curve has been improving some.... At this location I have found wheats before.
And this evening I found some clad & doing some tweaking on the settings
I weeded through the trashy stuff
At 7" deep to get a repeating signal of 12:45 from the ctx (CHARLIE)
I pulled out a 1950 George Washington
Then found my 23rd wheat of the year a few minutes later.

Wow 12-45 is very low for a silver quarter, even a clad quarter is 12-46. I wonder if there was maybe iron in the plug dragging the numbers down? Either way congrats on the silver and the rest, great day!

Nice hunt! What a cool ring! And way to pick it up with the broken signal. That's pretty cool.
