Congrats on the silver GW, wheats and the nickel trifecta, not an easy thing to do. Good luck. Mark

Nice first hunt! The vanquish is a pretty nice coin hunter!

Very cool...great hunt, Steve. I'm pretty happy with my Vanquish too. I like hunting woods, cellar holes, etc. and my machine gets abused in the heavy brush. It's holding up well and has found some special treasures.
