March Madness

March has been a real bear for me to find silver coins.  You wouldn’t believe the hours I put in to find 3.  Luckily I found 2 today or I’d be stuck with just one.  I was sweating it.  The cool thing was I found a coin spill with a 1929D Mercury dime, 1920D wheat and a no date buffalo nickel.  Everything old I found was in the woods except for one Merc, it was picked up in a trashy old park.  I’ve been trying the etrac in manual mode and it only works for me in a few places.  I’ve only found one old coin using manual and it was a deep wheat.  I was still able to pick it up in auto.  I’m going to try field hunting this year so maybe it will be beneficial there.  I also found an old pocket watch today.  It appears to be steel with a plated back.  The front was gone and I found the back a few inched away.  I was frustrated I couldn’t find the front glass and bezel.  Bummer. Good luck to everyone. 
BTW – Congrats to MDFINDS with finding the silver rosie while it was snowing!
