Well think I'm putting the MoJo away for the year. (Results)

Heading for the Gulf Coast for the winter. Traded in my Compardre last Spring for the Mojave. I'd do it again. Anyway hunted the MoJo in the tight, trashy areas mostly. Hard slugging in there, lot of trash. Kept the discrimination in middle of the nickel zone, mostly. So, to my figuring. Machine came up with a 100 nickels, out of a 1,000 coins. 488 pennies. $85+ in clad, a Silver quarter, a Silver ring & no gold. Just couldn't jump on one this year. Did find a $10 wrapped around a $5 on one hunt. So about a $100 for the season. So too bad, nickel average would be better but for hunting in all those pennies. Hunting 3 other machines and the Mojave held its end up.

I know that $10 find around the coins was exciting. About 10 years ago, I had GTA 300 and had just read an article where Charles Garrett loved to check multiple signals and see how accurate he was in the identity of the coins in a spill. So I, just for the heck of it, tried it on a school yard and finally came across a spill. I picked out a quarter, a nickel, a dime, and some pennies. So I raked back the loose pebbles in the tot lot and the first sighting was a $10 bill! Some kid had buried it, along with 78ยข in change. BTW, don't know if you'd have found it without the Mojave. Coins wrapped in a roll, at a certain angle, read very low!

Congrats on a very good year with an excellent Tesoro. The Mojave is a 'must-have' detector in my arsenal.N/T
