Default Last 2 hunts, silver and dirt yella!

Hey everyone, got out for 2 hours both today and yesterday. I managed two mercs, a really nice 1905 V nickel, a wheat and what I'm thinking to be a REALLY old button yesterday. Today was just crazy! Tried a new area at a park I have done well at in the past. It was literally pouring, I almost didnt hunt. But I finally got that golden monkey off my back! 4.4 grams of 14 K! Last gold was 2015 I think possibly older gold too??? If anyone has ANY input on that style of marking would be awesome! Also got a 1929 merc and 2 wheats and these cool Connecticut tokens. Can't wait to grid this spot out some more, I got a good feeling thanks for looking and happy hunting!

Love those V nickels. One of my very first finds 35 years ago was a V. Still looking for number 2

Thatís dumbfounding Kiowa,I find V-nickels very regularly(1 every 15 hunts maybe). Probably have 20 of them,if not more. One thing Iíve noticed,on the CTX a reading on one may be 12-13 in an air test. If that same coin is buried 8-9Ē deep,the reading might degrade to a 12-07 or 12-08,so down the Conductive scale 5-6 points! Digging by depth has been the key as well,0-6Ē targets are not considered in most of my sites.
Just spouting off,not preaching or bragging. Im simply noting that they are absolutely out there,just perhaps bypassed due to a low reading at depth...
Good luck on your second!

It feels good to be a DIE HARD S.O.B. when you come up with this stuff buddy! Iím glad to see youíre having great success,youíve certainly earned it. Being wet and cold sucks,mud on everything sucks. But a TRUE HUNTER will never consider letting those things get in the way of the chance to find just one more coin...one more button...one more gold ring. For us,the treasure hunt is the ultimate thrill.

NICE, dirty gold is tough to find, way tougher than wet gold!

Congrats Jeff on the trio of Mercs, V nickel, button, CT transit tokens and especially the vintage gold ring...it's likely 100 years old or more with that block 14K mark. Excellent digging!

Well, it's about dern time, man! Nice looking mercs and V nic, but great looking gold band! Looks old to me too, but I have no specific knowledge on that mark. The pouring rain just made this a more triumphant success.
The flat button looks like it was cast in a 2 piece mold...but again...no specific knowledge...

Great hunting! I'm actually surprised it's the first time you have done it in over 3-4 years!!I do it a couple times a year at least... Beautiful gold ring regardless, the rest ain't half bad either, congrats!
