Default seated and indians

We were lucky enough to have all last week above freezing, which gave me thawed ground by friday. Took off friday and went out and found a seated half dime and 8 indians. Used my nox 800, the majority of the indians were in the 8-11 inch mark. The half dime was somewhere around 7 to 8 inches. Was the hunting by 9:30 am, Got chased out by the snow and wind by the early afternoon. I know there more silver in this spot waiting, just a bear of a spot to hunt. So far from this site I have pulled somewhere around 25 silver coins (mostly seated) something like 50+ indians, bunch of v and shield nickels, and some other randoms

Some very fine hunting TP. You have dug more Indians in one outing than I have in the last three years. Congrats on the Seated Half Dime and a great site that provides a lot of very fine rewards. Trapper

I dig a lot of indians and old silver cause thats what I hunt age wise. I will never accomplish the staggering amount of silver or wheats you pull every year, unless I change up my hunting habits and target the 1900s instead of the 1800s. seeing what you do though, it is temping to start trying.

You need a hunting buddy? I could be the guy that finds the 1900s "junk" and I will leave the 1800s to you. 😉

Awesome honey hole!

Yes, an old fair grounds/horse track. My hunting buddy and I got super lucky finding a virgin one that has never been detected. In addition to my 25 silvers he has pulled somewhere around 16.

Yeah it's crazy how all the silver has come out in great condition but the soil just destroyed every single indian. I have not pulled one decent indian that wasn't a corroded powdery green mess.

Man that's an amazing location. Love that half dime.

Were the signals all pretty much loud and clear, or were they faint and have-to-move-slow-or-you'd-miss-them types?
