I have got to be doing something wrong. I've been at this for about 5 years and have yet to find a single silver coin. Now I know alot has to do with where I hunt and alot of the places I go there isn't a high probability of a silver coin being there . I have been to a few places where I have found a few wheaties and a nickel here and there in the mid to low 50's . One place was an old Boycott camp that's been there since early 1900's and didn't find a single silver but I do know that place has been hunted alot. Yesterday I went to a huge Boycott camp that's been there since Mid 50's or possibly before. I spent all day from about 9:00am to nearly 6:00pm pretty much non stop. I pulled almost 100 pieces of clad mostly from the 70's some late 60's and a bit of 80's and newer. I pulled 3 nickels from the early 50's about 6" deep. Where I found the 50's nickels I hunted for quite some time on each spot and dug everything that rang up 50 and above on my AT Pro and obviously pulled several pull tabs and can slaw and foil. No matter what I have tried I just can't find a silver coil I mean even a blind squirrel finds a nut occasionally but dang what am I doing wrong. I found a pocket knife, putt putt token and camp pin on this hunt. The day before at a different site I found a 50's nickel and tried the same approach dig it all and just wondering up with alot of trash. I lost count of how many pennies and dimes I've gotten in the last two days but yesterday was almost 6.00 worth and nearly 4.00 the day before. I am resetting my detector and ground balancing both auto and manual and trying many different setting usually Pro Zero but I've tried coin mode etc etc. Any ideas? I'm stumped.
