Default Great day Detecting!

Iíve been in a slump lately just digging !!!! all the time and hardly any coins. I hit a new to me school óbuilt 1939 and cleaned the clad out!

It's nice to hit a nice handful of clad. I know a lot of my sites are drying up. Congrats! BTW, what detector were you using? How are you getting along with the vaquero? I have one coming and should be here tomorrow.

As long as you can ascertain depth through the use of modulated audio(unless the Vaq has a depth meter) then you can target the deeper coins which should get you to silver. The button looks like silver,unless itís SUPER light,in which case Iíd guess aluminum...
Thatís a nice batch of coins! The Vaq isnít lacking on depth from what I hear,but the site might be lacking in silver. Keep crankiní them out and the deeper the better!
Well done DT!

Looks like a good day there! Congrat's!

If I ever come back down to Chattanooga, besides some north GA relic-hunting, I'd like to get out with you. Such history in Chatt' I always found the darndest stuff in the darndest places!

I miss the variety.

Thanks!
Sunday I used the deus. Been using it a lot lately!

Love the Vaquero bit I hesitate to take it to a park... if I do a back hoe needs to be following me!

I used it about a month ago. Finally pulled some nickles with it, which for me I rarely dig. Iíve been trying to learn the deus. It loves deep iron and crown caps but in thick iron itís outstanding.
