0028 Baby!!

What a great day in Iowa!! I left home around 11:00 am and hunted a field that was the site of an old township hall. Lots of hot rocks and my SE was quite noisy. I did find an old pinky ring in there. Don't know what it is but it's not silver or gold. Stopped and visited my aunt and uncle and my uncle went along for about 15 minutes. We stopped at the neighbors place and got permission to hunt another field that held an old school house and the first township post office in 1855. Should be good this fall after the beans are out. I let my uncle out at home and went to another field that was a ball diamond. That was corn stubble and hard to hunt. The SE was running pretty stable in that field so I cranked the sensitivity up to 27. A two hour hunt yielded a nice 1917 merc that read 0028 and didn't fluctuate a bit. I also got a V nickle that I can't read the date on and two wheaties! I really thought about a new Equinox but if there is a coin under the coil this Explorer is going to hit it! Gold luck and happy hunting everyone!!:detecting:

NICE! Sounds like you have some GREAT spots to hunt, and NICE DIGS on that corn field!

Wow that is wonderful Ted last year I found an 1883 v nickle in lousy shape but my first! Way to go I also found my first three ringer as well! I'm having too much fun to think of another detector right now.

I hear what you are saying! This SE is working good and I need to learn more about it. Anyone know how to eliminate hot rocks? I would like a new machine but I think the Equinox only advantage would be in trashy areas. I stayed home today. 35 MPH wind gusts are too much for me!!
