F5 & F19 find silver

From a couple of hunts.I went back to the old school grounds where I found the 1928 standing liberty. Not so much luck this time but at least I found 2 more silver coins (a 1943 quarter and a 1951 dime). Both of these are from a time when the Canadian mint started to cut down on silver content (80/20 percent silver/copper). The quarter was found with the F5 and the dime with the F19. Most of the recent clad was found with the F19. The F5 with any DD coil has a real hard time with modern Canadian mint clad. Most of the quarters, dimes and nickels from after 1970 have an iron core and a nickel outer shell so the F5 sees iron and passes since I discriminate it out. The F19 hits them from one side usually. I'm not sure how it works but it has to do with frequency for sure. If I get one high tone from a full swing and always on the same side, chances are it's modern clad.

This place has potential for sure since I also found one very nice looking square nail at 7 inches and a tiny bent one. I also found several copper pennies from the 40's including a wheat from 1946. It's not easy to fish out the silver from all the trash and modern clad that is in the ground there. If you have seen Revier's video on what a trashy area can sound like, this place is exactly the same. You can't go fast, too much noise to process.

Way to go Mike, that place is turning out to be a honey hole.

Thanks. I get the feeling the place has been hunted before or at least cherry picked for silver. For more than a century, this place seen a lot of action and it's loaded with clad but very little silver it seems. Either somebody picked most of it up at one time or the really old ones are beyond my reach depth wise which is possible. I'll get what I can while It's still there !

Definitely a good outing. Pulling the goodies others miss. Using different detectors on a tough site is what I always do. Keep at it.
