With all your help and Bryces coin program in Andy's Sabisch book and the book itself had a great first day in my eyes. First rings..one silver another not real sure about and tons of clad. Alot of close silver dates but new park tomorrow they plowed under..was an old park so might have some better silver coin luck there. Oh and a cool button.!!:super:

Thanks again everyone..loving this SE PRO

Very nice rings and a nice haul of money to boot. :clapping: :thumbup:

If its a plowed or a filled over area gooooo slow (go slow regardless LOL with a Exp.).
I have hit so so many places similar. Just my last two days of hunting have fill/plow over the whole front yard slopped area and there is such a mix of depth on coins.



Detecting since 1979
Findmall member since 2000
Started out with a :bounty: 840 VLF/TR. Then I have owned a :whites: 5900, 6000Di, 6000Di Pro, XLT and a DFX, :fisher: CZ6 CZ6a, CZ7.
Started using :minelab: in 2000 with a XS . :thumbup: Then I have used and owned the XS-S, SE.
I currently still swing my XS-II I bought in 2003 and have a SE-Pro as a back-up that my son often uses when he goes with me.
I also have some coils and use the Sun-Ray X1 probes on both detectors and three pair of the DetectorPro "Grey Ghost Originals"

Blasphemy!! You had to BUY a silver coin?!? :blowup: Something tells me you won't have to worry about buying silver coins in the near future. It looks like you have picked up on the SE's language pretty quick! Nice job!

Nice hunt Mike.:thumbup:

Keep up the good work:beers:.

I think you're gonna become good friends with the SE.:smile:



Here's the link to my field test post containing over 60 different hunts of various coil tests...field tests published in Western & Eastern Treasures Magazine...comparisons...nicer finds...etc..:
http://www.findmall.com/read.php?19,1055627,1055627#msg-1055627

Been swingin' the coil since 1972

Started out in 1972 with a Jetco Detector...then the late 70's with a Whites 6000:whites:....then in 1981 went to a Bounty Hunter VLF TR 840:bounty:

Then in the early 1980's I went to a Whites 6000 Di Pro:whites:...mid 80's I went to a Whites Eagle II SL:whites:...Late 80's/Early 90's I went to the Whites XLT:whites:

1990's I used the Fisher CZ5, CZ6, CZ7, 7aPro, and CZ70Pro (still have)...and am currently doing some water hunting with my CZ-21:fisher:...

Started using Minelabs in 1999:minelab:

with a brief stint on the Musketeer while also using the CZ's...then in 2002 I switched to the Minelab Explorers and currently use the Explorer SE Pro as my main machine. I also use the Explorer 2 and E-trac often... and have a CTX3030 I use as a backup:minelab: Might also mention I have an arsenal of coils for the Explorers:thumbup:


"Metal detecting is an escape for me and allows me to find some much needed peace and solace.
Being able to clear my head...even if only for that short while...is much more meaningful than any amount of finds that end up in my pouch"
