Default Weekend wrap up

All public hunts this weekend. Itís tough!!! Hunted a local high school and city park. Managed to pull a bunch of clad, some real old wheats and 2 silver dimes. I got a cool pic of the Rosie when I popped the plug. Iím super impressed with this CTX! I was running it with a open screen in combined ferrous/coin. A lot of the older deeper wheats had iron in the hole.

A very nice weekend tom. From what your saying most of the targets were deep and your CTX performed to your expectations. I'm starting my fourth year with that machine and I'm still amazed by its performance. In open terrain the 17 in coil really enhances the signals. anyway congrats on the Silver's, the Wheat's and all the rest. Trapper

You have some great soil to treat those wheat cents that good. Awesome hunts.

Thanks Trapper! I canít wait to go over some of the spots with the 17Ē coil. I used the stock coil this weekend. Iím super happy with the performance. Forgot to add that I dug very little trash too!

Thanks Scuba! Yes the soil here is pretty nice to the coins. I cleaned them up a little for the photo though.

Nice digging Wyo! Getting silver from public parks is tough. The CTX will make it a lot easier! If it didnít weigh 42 pounds Iíd get one, lol.

Great finds! Is that a 1922 wheat cent in the photo? That's a monster date if so!
