Default The Nox delivers again! 4 silver coins and a silver ring!!!

So my incredible hot streak with my Minelab Equinox continued today..... I went back to the yard where I found the fire truck tootsie toy and holy cow....4 more silver coins. A 62 Washington quarter, 2 silver Rosies, a 56 and a 57, and a 1943 Mercury Dime!! I also found a Sterling silver ring and 11 more wheat pennies!! The Mercury was in the same hole as one of the Rosies. It was my first time digging 4 silver coins in a day!!

Congrats on a fantastic outing. Five Silver's in a hunt is something to really smile about. Seems you and your "Nox' are really beginning to become great partners. Trapper

Three dimes and a quarter in silver is a fantastic hunt. And that ring is sweet too. I am seeing great things with the Nox? Does this mean I have to buy another metal detector? I guess as soon as I leave this site, I will have to check out the Nox.
HH everyone

Default great finds - wish I was in Ohio, once was.

Those are great finds. the silver picking are not as good in Atlanta. Poor rural economy and never an economic power house in manufacturing with better wages and years of worker with silver pocket change.

I was born in Ohio, but moved to Georgia in the second grade.

But we have more civil war sites so I guess it is a trade off. I just enjoy getting out 2-3 times each week away from working at the computer .
