I need to edit one of the numbers in my comments about coins, instead of 11,000 wheats total since late 2012, it is 6632! I had one of the columns and numbers transposed on the Excel spreadsheet, added memorials instead of wheats on one year. My bad!!!

Anyway, I finished with 208, a rosie and a 1947 Mexican Uno Peso (50% silver).

Jas,first...that is some really good overall technique to find what type of site you’re looking for,and knowing how they can produce. It is a METHOD that an individual hunter has to come up with in order to put the targets in the site to begin with. You can be “Super Hunter” and not find squat because you just didn’t do the homework!
I’ve only known one other person that found more in one year,he had something like 231 or 251...but to hit 200 is some kind of feat! Being retired helps! If you do NOT have the Pro-Swing harness you are really short changing yourself,to be quite honest. The time must be spent with the initial setup,or “fitting” of the harness to get it exactly to your body. Once that is done,the machine FLOATS. I push mine around with just a light touch of the fingers. This is NOT one of those,”Hey,I spent good money on it so I have to tell someone how good it is but it’s really a POS” type is as good as I describe. If it wasn’t,I wouldn’t mention it.
You have found a way to maximize what the CTX does very well to begin with,and that’s the key to big counts! Congratulations on a banner year,not too many people are in your company. I think (just opinion based on what the CTX does) that the Equinox will be a great COMPLIMENT to the CTX,but it won’t replace it. It may be easier to find lower conductors with it and maybe sort out some coins in trash...but NOTHING will “replace” the CTX. It is that damn good.

Well done, that's a lot of silver.
They seem pretty modern so can you still spend them, are they legal tender?
We went decimal in about 1971, so anything after then we call spendables.

I did not start the year with any goals as to amounts, etc., but in late November I was at the 180 mark, I have kept a spreadsheet of 'finds' for the past 6 years, and decided to do my best to get over 200 for the year. Today, hunting with good friends, I managed to get 7 out of the same hole! Later about 20 feet away wI got the 1900, 90% silver, 5 Centavos. Between us we got 9 silver coins and 3 silver rings off the same lot. 5664 coins this year is a load for me. I turned 75 in September and am looking forward to that new Equinox to take a load off my sore back. The CTX has been a monster for me for the past 5 years, 822 silver coins with it and over 34,600 coins total, but I need a lighter machine.

So, dod you hunt every day for the 1825 days, or find a 5 gallon bucket loaded with pennies?
Thats alot of digging. You better find a way to automate that. Gonna cut your life cycle down... :-)
