Default The Cool Weather Got The Deus Smoking Hot

I started out this morning with the CTX 3030 with the 6 inch search coil attached. It was finding plenty of coins in trashy areas but no silver. I decided that the site that I was at wasn't worth my energy and that I needed a larger search coil.

When I arrived at the next site I pulled out my Deus since it had a larger search coil. I had more open area to cover and it wasn't all that trashy. Right off I got a high tone and 93 ID reading. When I popped the plug I found what thought at first was a slug, but finally I saw that it was a heavily grey tarnished Standing Liberty Quarter. It's not pretty, but it will look better once I clean it up. My second one for the year.

My next good find was a foreign coin spill. I'm only showing 2 coins in the hole shot because I didn't find the 3rd one until I rescanned the hole. I wonder how those foreign 1942 and 1946 coins got there?

My next find was a shallow 1959 Rosie. It was giving an ID of 91 and was screaming out a high tone that you couldn't pass up. It's not much, but I'll take it.

My last find was also swallow and in the same area where I found the Rosie. It's ID was bouncing between 89 and 90. I figured maybe a clad dime. Nope, it was 1940 Mercury dime. You just have to dig those clad dimes, wheat and copper pennies ID numbers, because they could turn out to be silver coins.

Tomorrow is haircut day and I need to finish putting out my tomato and pepper plants, so I'll get a day of rest from detecting. I'm going back to that site with the CTX with its larger stock search coil attached. I bet that I find more silver coins. On yeah, I found 9 wheat pennies.

Nice assortment of finds there congrats. Probably somebody that was in the war brought those coins back as a souvenir. My father-in-law was was in World War II gave me some foreign coins he collected over there.

Thanks! Silver around here are getting harder to find. It has been a while since I've had a 7 or 8 silver coin day.

Thanks! That makes a lot of sense.

Thanks! I found 2 SLQ last year and I've already found 3 this year. I probably won't see another one for 3 years! They're hard to come by.

Thanks! I need to get in all the hunting that I can because it won't be long and the weather gets really hot and the ground gets hard to dig.

Congrats on another great hunt !!! Foreign coins are cool to find and the Deus seemed to sniff out the silver today.

Congratulations on another Stander! Haircut day? Like on your head or just the normal inside of your ears, back and nose?

Thanks! I'm going back over that site with a fine toothed comb.

Thanks! After spending the majority my time at a site that didn't have any silver, It didn't take long to find silver at the new site. If silver coins aren't there you're not going to find any. When I started finding lots of wheat pennies I knew silver was likely to be there as well.

Thanks! Don't under estimate the Deus, it's a proven winner.

Thanks! Yeah, that's the 3rd one for the year. BTW, I have gorgeous hair! LOL

Thanks! Our normal last frost date is April 15. I grow Big Beef tomatoes because they're best tasting hybrid and are super easy to grow. I used to grow some heirloom tomatoes, but they split open all time, don't produce lots of fruit and are not disease resistant like Big Beef tomatoes are. Jet Star and Parks Whopper are good as well, but Big Boy and Better Boy SUCK compared to those three.

Default Misleading title..

Wait, you said "The cool Weather" in your subject post..

And yet you show flowers, green green grass.. in your photo?!

if I didn't know better I'd say you're just trying to rub it in on us up north who are braving the 33'F temps just trying to get out of the house after a long winter of cabin fever.. For SHAME sir.. for shame!!

Yeah, envious as heck over there

Cool finds! Thanks for sharing...
