I remember thinking a little while back that my silver rosie count was down. It looks like I’m making up for it now! I managed to pick 5 of them recently hunting around 1950’s schools. These are usually the least fruitful for me since most coins from the 50’s are not very deep and easily picked up by most detectors. The ones I did find were in fields behind schools or in oddball places on the property. It takes a lot of time to cover these areas and the least fun to hunt due to the taller grass. I picked up a silver quarter in an old park in very dense trash. The readings were so iffy I thought it would be a clad quarter at best. According to my records I’m one silver coin up from last year at this time. I’m still determined to hit my goal of 100. I’m still kicking around the idea of upgrading to a larger coil since most of the Etrac bloggers I’ve followed already have. So there must be some kind of an advantage there! I also picked up a child’s silver ring at 4″. It rang up mostly like a modern penny which I don’t dig much. This one rang up differently enough it made me curious. It goes to show you never really know what you might be passing up!
