Talking 3 dimes gets me to 50 fty

Got out to a permission this morning. I wasn’t really feeling it for some reason…maybe because this place is so trashy. Anyways soon after I got there I hit a crusty wheatie. Then I did some aimless rambling through a field that was probably a pasture back in the day. Nothing. Last week with the nox and six inch coil I hit a merc near what used to be an outbuilding or a garage. Nothing there now but the foundation. Today I was armed with the 11” coil and I made my way to where I had dug that merc last weekend. I get a strong shallow 24/25 and two or three inches down is a very worn 1900 barber dime. Then I hit two or three wheats then a merc. Then another wheat and within a foot or so another merc! After that I hit a nice Elizabeth Arden lipstick case. Then a buff. Over near the old house I get a strong shallow 18 and out pops a 1923 one franc French coin. Some of the relics in the pic are from last week.

Way to go Toad! Always nice to hit a milestone. Hopefully I'll be there with at 50 next year. In the meantime, I'm hoping to hit 30 before the ground freezes up here in Iowa soon.

Thanks! Hopefully I’ll add one or two more, but that’ll make it harder to beat next year! Lol

Nice hunt with the three shiny ones.

I went out today with my new CTX3030 and got some nice deep silver signals. Only one problem, could not dig any deeper than 3-4" due to no rain for a month.

Will go back after it rains.
