Abandoned House Silver...

Howdy--

I had some luck yesterday. My detecting buddy, Kenneth, and I first went to an abandoned house that we had hunted before. The city mowed the yard which previously much of it was un-huntable. At that site I dug 9 Wheat cents and in the back yard near the pool I dug over $6.00 in clad - mostly quarters. We decided to move on and look for another site to hunt. Kenneth at 84 years old has a good eye for spotting good detecting sites. He saw a house that had the "empty " look. We knocked on the door and spoke to the owner who said that the building was a dentist's office and that he was going to have it demolished and that we were welcome to detect it. Kenneth, dug 5 silver coins: a 1939-S Merc, 3 silver Roosevelt's and a silver Jefferson. I dug a 1958-D Washington Quarter, a 1935-D Washington, a no date Liberty Standing Quarter, a 1942-S silver Jefferson, a nice 1939-S Jefferson and the Lord's Prayer Which I believe was originally a Lincoln Cent that had been rolled. I also dug some clad and a few wheat cents. We finished up at the third site which was an older house - probably built in the 1940's. Kenneth dug a 1943 Merc, and a 1957-D Roosevelt and I dug a 1934 Heavy Motto Washington Quarter, a 1954-D Roosevelt, 2 1951-D Roosevelt's, one of which looks like it had been hit with a lawn mower, a 1943-P Silver Jefferson , a Sterling Silver Donald Duck ring and a Virgo Key fob or medallion. When I got home I counted the wheat cents and I had a total of 27 - the oldest is a 1928-S. Also had a total of $13.25 in clad. There is still a lot of hunting to do at the last site. We didn't get to the back yard and much of the front has not been hunted due to overgrowth. We are going to give it another try Wednesday - I might take a lawn mower with me! I was using my V3i with the 6x10 coil. Best of luck and...

Happy Hunting!

Thanks wasp! I have ALL of the Whites coils for the DFX and v3i and I must agree with you 100%. The 6x10 is great for home sites and I believe that it's a pretty much all-purpose coil. It gets good depth and satisfactory target separation. Some sites , though call for the 4x6. With that being said I always take the 4x6, 6x10 and the 9" spider coil (if I think a deep seeking concentric coil is best for a site) with lower rods on all of them to facilitate a fast coil change. Best of luck and...
