Default Triple Silver Coins at My Local go-to Park.

Had some time this morning and went to my local park that i have probably spent 100s of hours at. I consider it a success if I can pull a few wheat pennies. I was surprised by 3 silver dimes today. I used Beach 2, recovery speed 4 and went SLOW. Squeaked out some keepers. Thanks for looking.

I've been using it on sites that I have hunted hard before. Not sure of the reason why, but Ive been able to do quite well with the Beach modes on dirt

Great finds!

What detectors have you used in the past? Is the nox800 your favorite?

I've been using my etrac for a decade now and wondering if I should try a nox over my hard hunted sites.

I would, the etrac is tough to beat for deep old turf silver, but the recovery speed on the nox is noticeably quicker. Nice finds SW, congrats on the trifecta!

Congrats! I have yet to do that. Only came close once. Barber and Rosie, and then it started raining harder and I left. The next time there two Merc's. Just my luck!
