Ever think coins may not sink that deep in your neck of the woods....In N.E. Pa. they sink deep and have gotten 10 inch silver dimes although the average one is probably 6 to 8 inches in most cases. I like the slow and low tecnique by one of the posters as explorers hate air and usually scrub my coil on ground which helps with the weight problem... Explorers series are deep units but a medium slow swing is needed and certainly not for those fast swingers....

Hey Dan -- you bring up an outstanding point, and it's the OTHER reason I think some folks haven't dug dimes at 10". In some places, they DON'T sink that deep. In many of the sites I hunt, the clay is so dense, there's no WAY a coin is "sinking" to 10" deep. In that ground, I find 100-year old coins 2-3-4" deep. Only in softer, loamy soil (or in areas where fill dirt has been spread atop the native clay) do I usually find them deeper than about 6" here.

Excellent point, Dan.
