Sharpshooter coil ate its wheaties yesterday...

Where I found the walker the other day.
This time the F70 and the Sharpshooter coil and I found more wheaties than I ever did before on any single hunt.
These lawns in my neighborhood are like this...first I clean out the wheaties and the copper memorials plus the zincolns and eventually the masked silver dimes and war nickels start showing up.
The new coil did well, every one of these were very short, quick signals and if I went too fast I would have missed them.
3-5" deep, one signal was pretty jumpy but something about the sound in 3H tones made me dig it despite the way too many drops to iron.
Glad I did, it was a wheat coin spill with a 1917 sandwiched with a 1944 plus a rusted steel war cent in the same small hole.
The 1917 was face in with the other coin so protected a bit and to the right of the bust above the date is a small area with the original newly minted bronze color poking through so...neat.

I used both my maxed out, pumped up blast though settings to find half of these, max sense, thresh and SL in all metal, the other half in disc with disc at 4, sense mostly about 75-80 but even down to 60 got me deep enough, thresh at -3 to -1 changing settings here and there trying to keep it quiet so I could hear the quick, repeating high tones in 3H.

Love this machine and coil combination.

Now I am going back with the Red Racer and see if it's cherry picking abilities can find me more so a good experimental test I would think.

Hopefully some more shiny types to come.

Nice hunt Revier, that's more Wheaties than I've ever found in one day. Most of the time you start getting silver when those Wheaties show up.

Very nice, REVIER. About how deep were they?
