Default Another successful park hunt with another first!

This was from last weekend just getting around to posting. I was hunting an old park I have been hitting for years. This particular area was said to be hunted out by my fellow club members. They have used all the top machines here including CTX. I found all these targets in a small area that used to be a golf course green. Somehow the war nickel has eluded me for years so I was stoked to finally dig one there! Two of the wheats were in one hole as well so that was a nice surprise. It was a fun hunt because I was so surprised to find all these coins in such a highly detected area. Thanks for looking!

Yep. I have pretty much stopped using other machines outside of some testing. I currently own the ctx and anfibio multi but I just cant put this equinox down! I have had so much success in areas that have been pounded so hard by the other machines. Almost all of my hunts are in local parks. I have just started door knocking on occasion.

Thanks to everyone else for looking and for all the nice comments!

Is that because you can never find "Green Patina Large Cents" like we East Coasters do?
