Swinging the F 75 with 5" and 5 x 10 coils.:fisher:

Ever so often a decent hunt pops up and more often then not anymore it takes 3 or 4 hunts to make a decent photo shot.

The fresh from the grounds shots were on an old spot that typically has been frugal for old silver and old coins in general. I did get the 5" coil of a 36d Merc., a pretty decent 1901 I H cent and a 925 silver ring. On a earlier hunt I did get a shield nickel from the spot. My hunting buddy, however, got the bucket list prize of the day on that hunt. He popped a holed 1834 Liberty Cap half dime using his F 75 with a NEL Sharpshooter coil. That was his second half dime from that spot. On a previous hunt at the fairgrounds I got the 14k gold pendent and a 1907 V nickel along with a 54 Rosie. The 14k piece hit in the nickel range.

Yesterday I hit the fairgrounds again after a light shower and cold front had passed through and did the old nickel trick again getting a 1891 V followed up by a 1842p war nickel. I was using the 5 x 10 DD.

Today we hit an old spot downtown that we had checked out day before yesterday. I dug 8 wheats that outing and my buddy had some along with 2 Merc's., so we deemed it merited another shot. My first dug coin this morning was what might well be a 1930 Standing Liberty quarter. Six months less wear and I might know for sure. Also got a 60 Rosie, 3 wheats, 46 and 51 and ?. Got the top piece to a bracelet engraved with C Alvin Gray, U S Navy and the underside has some numbers. Name and numbers will give me something to play around with. It's just plain ole tough to beat a good beeping F 75.

Ha, Ron, probably can't pass it off as a 1942 half dime either. Just goes to show, it takes more then five proof reads for some of us. HH jim tn

Hey Taylor, coming back to God's country (not). We are a few inches below normal for the year, but at least we get a small shot of moisture here and there and digging's been good so far. Maybe our paths will cross. HH jim tn
