Deep Woods Silver and more

Where to start.  Ok, hit 50 with a Silver Rosie in the field behind a local school where I’ve hit other silver Rosie’s.  Fifty always seemed to be the hardest number to hit for me.  My Pro Coil started developing problems hunting in wet grass.  I haven’t had problems in the past, but who knows?  So I order the 13″ Ultimate coil by Detech to keep me going.  It’s slightly heavier and really pushes the detector’s balance forward.  Not much harder to handle though. As soon as I put the new coil on I headed to the local old hunted out park.  I managed to find a Merc at 4-5″ sitting at a 45 degree angle.  That looked promising.  My next hunt was another hunted out old park.  The grass was fairly high and made it difficult to hunt, but not impossible.  I found a deep target giving numbers like 1-40, 1-39, 1-36 etc.  I thought it would be a wheat, but much to my surprise it was a bent 1898 Canadian nickel made of silver.  Wow, for one I didn’t know they were made of silver and two was that it was in a Midwest city park!  About 6″ away I found a 1898 Indian Head Penny.  I love finding Indian Head Pennies.  Maybe the new coil is giving me an advantage since I know 3 etracs have been over this area before.  Since most of the parks I hunt haven’t been mowed in a while.  I decided to hunt deeper in the woods in the park I found the Barber Quarter in.  Yes, weeds are high in most places, but in the big timber its not too bad.  It paid off with my second Walking Liberty Half, my first Standing Liberty Quarter and three silver Rosie’s and a Merc.  It took about 6 hours of wandering through the brush, but 6 silvers!  Guess where I’ll be going next weekend?!  Happy Hunting
