Default Double Triple Nickels.

Went back to an old pounded park that keeps giving a few goodies up. Not many high tones left. Concentrated on nickels. Managed a great nickel hunt. The ground is not nice to them, but i still enjoy old ones. The 1907 nickel is especially ugly. 2 Vs, 2 Buffalos, and 2 pre-war Jeffersons. I was hoping to score a war nickel. Not this time. The wheat and Merc were in the same hole. Really odd signal. Thanks for looking.

Those old Vs hit at deep, solid 11s on the 800.

Nice! Those pre-war Jefferson's can be harder to find than war nickels!

Nice nickel foray there! I usually don't check the year on old Jeffy nickels if they aren't War nickels. Sometimes they are found deep.

Good idea focusing on nickels. That one V sure is toast but at least you have a year on it.

Good strategy! Is that a tax token?

Thanks! Ive definitely found more Jefferson war nickels than the pre-war variety.

I usually don't either unless they are found deep. I'm always expecting a Buffalo.

Right! The date is about all that is recognizable. Thanks!

The Equinox hits them good. I changed the 11-13 bin to a high tone for fun.

Thanks. Yes, Utah State tax token 1mil. They are aluminium. Sound similar to a deep silver dime.

Thanks! I like them too. Never look very good, but they are not an easy dig.

That's a more than nice day out and about. Nice to see people finding great stuff west of the Mississippi. I get jealous sometimes of the East coast folks.
