Silver Dimes and a V Nickel

Silver has been turning up, but slower than I hoped.  I did find a little spot that turned up old wheats and a Merc.  So I decided to dig any signal that wasn’t normal trash numbers and was rewarded with a V Nickel.  I’m surprised I don’t find more Buffalo Nickels.  I’ve been taking the time to dig signals with a good sound, but not so good numbers.  I’ve managed at least five wheats that way. Some had trash in the hole with them and some with no trash.  So I can’t explain why they rang up differently.   I haven’t had the same luck with silver yet.  Work in progress 🙂   Good luck with your hunts!
