Default Silvers #138 to #141...

Went out for a dig with the Dirt Lizard today at a 1940's park/ballfield I last visited in the winter of 2015/2016...D.L came prepared with a brand new Safari that he pulled a Merc with in a effort to compete with the Captain...but me, being the dirty player in the game brought out a couple FBS machines, one wearing a big coil and the other a 6"...and proceeded to put silver on both of 'em All of it...scrap, junk ring, part of a pocketwatch, $1.50 in clad, 11 wheats and 4 silvers #138, #139, #140 and #141... It was nice to get out and dig with Bob today, good times and good hunting for sure...so until the next outing, thanks for the looking and Happy Hunting!

Thanks everyone for the replies! As far as how deep the silvers were Dan, the dirty Rosie was at 8" or so while the other 3 found with the small coil were only 4-5" down but hiding in very thick trash.
