Few hours of fun

Spent a few hours each evening at a site I have hunted before.
Sat used the small coil, Di3, 14Khz mode.
Did well gridding an area......getting real good picking out the coins between the trash and the coil works well for surface to about 5" on dime size coins, even on edge or slanted in the ground.

Sunday eve, did well again. Used the 5x9 coil, 20Khz, Di4 mode. Grid hunted another area. Detection depth was deeper as can be expected. Using 20Khz was a bit busier and found some really small canslaw and foil at 4-5".
About half way thru the hunt switched to 14Khz, so I was able to use my pinpointer to locate those deeper targets and those on edge or slanted that were off to the side of the hole. I like to dig as small plugs as possible, so the pinpointer comes in handy.

I did find one Canadian partly silver dime dated 1968.

Tried some of the other modes briefly towards the end of my hunt. Interesting. For Canadian coin shooting still think Di3 works the best, quieter operation than Di4. Don't rule out Di4. A bit deeper, the extra 4th audio tone makes it peppier giving some extra audio info. Did notice in either mode best to keep Disc level down to 3 for Can. clad, otherwise think, found you lose a clue to there's a coin, due to bouncy numbers.

That's an impressive amount of clad. What a shame the most recent coins have rust bubbles on them after only a few years in the ground. Sometimes I have to throw some dimes and quarters in the garbage.

The rust for the most part can be scrapped off pretty fast and spendable. Or cleaned up in a tumbler then look pretty good. Coinstar machines love them if you decide to let them take a cut of the coins . You would be surprised, many of the coins found 5-6 deep and been down there for 10 years or so, look pretty nice when they pop out of the ground. all depends upon the year they were made and the composition. love popping those $2 coins out of the ground. finding the Impact is pretty good at finding them. The soil around here doesn't crud up the clad as it does in other locations. Think we are kind of lucky with that...

Pictured is a tray of clad, I dug and tumbled. What you don't see is the pile of $1 and $2 coins found, spent them before this picture was taken. By the way, found all those coins with my PI in 2013.
