Deep Quarter

Coin Magnet

Member
I took the 15” coil to the old field I have been hunting for the last week yesterday afternoon and picked up where I left off from the last hunt.
Unfortunately I didn’t find any coins UNTIL I went back to “DIME LAND” where I found the three back to back Dimes two different times last week.
Since I found two super deep Dimes with the 11” I thought maybe the 15” would sniff out a couple more that were deeper. Sure enough it didn’t disappoint.

I got a signal that was super iffy and would barely pinpoint. It was all over the map on the numbers. It wouldn’t go negative so I decided to dig.
When I got the first 8” plug out I totally lost the signal. So I dug out another 4” or so and was able to get the pinpointer to react but I totally lost any signal with the coil in discriminate or pinpoint.

So I’m thinking iron right. So I went in with the pinpointer and the signal got stronger so I dug a little deeper. When I started to pull the dirt out of the hole I saw a large coin on the end of the shovel. I couldn’t believe it. It was a quarter!
Turned out to be the deepest quarter that I have ever dug. I measured the depth of the hole and it was 14”. That was to the top of the dirt line so it would have even been deeper from the coil.

Now I’m thinking there are more quarters and certainly dimes that are extra deep at this place. Probably a half seeded in there somewhere too!
This field is very wet and there are huge tire ruts right in the middle of the hot spot that I haven’t been able to hunt. It’s gonna be planted in corn this year. So when he gets it worked up and ready to plant I’ll be back for sure!
This one makes 12 silver coins there since last Friday.

I think the quarter is a 1920P. And I also found an Indian and 3 Wheats. The Indian was super deep too and barely made a sound.

So far I've found 44 coins here. 14 dimes 1898-1926 and the quarter. 9 Indian and 19 wheats. No nickels yet. A couple of clad. The copper coins are crusted so bad that I can barely tell what they are even after cleaning. I miss the days of fionding the solid dark green high grade Indians. Not sure what the farmers are putting on their fields these days but to copper coins don't like it!

That's some fine detecting. I just about bet that if you had approached it from a different direction you wouldn't of heard it or it would have sounded like iron.

Terrific find, congratulations! I probably would have given up in a park but farmland is different.
Cool

I’ve noticed too that the deeper coin targets have a tendency to read lower numbers on the screen. Quarters tend to read dime numbers......

Fringe detecting is a blast when you get onto it! Last time I experienced it was digging Mini balls in North Carolina, totally degraded signals the only way to get an idea where to dig was to pinpoint after getting a signal. Moisture is definitely your friend.
