A good weekend, a silver weekend..

A cold weekend with stiff winds couldn’t keep me from seeking silver.  Finally a silver coin with the etrac, a 1946D Roosevelt.  I had to use “two tone ferrous” to find it in the thick iron.  It was about 6″ deep in an area surrounded by nails, in fact ALL my targets were surrounded by nails.  I also found 2 wheats  1917, 1953D and modern quarters and dimes.

Two tone ferrous seems to work much better in areas we hunt.  Standard mode iron falses way to much on deeper older iron targets.  I’ve dug at least thirty holes where the TID is at least 50/50 good numbers verses iron numbers and its been 100% trash.
