Got a couple nice surprises yesterday...

I finally got on board for the year yesterday with my first silver for the year.
Due to bad weather, I have only been out 3 times so far this year.
I decided to try a couple old schools where I have been finding silver at but finds are dwindling now.
The rosey did not give a signal like I am accustomed to.. read much like a penny... I realized after digging it that there was a wheat penny very close to it.
When I found the Mercury dime, I had just found a wheat penny and about a foot away, I got a good signal from one angle, but not so good from another angle...
I was not expecting silver with either one of these to finds.
Thanks for looking!!

If some of you guys can list that tid number being new with the equinox... as I am seeing a lot of jumpyness with these numbers... is 13 /nickel the only real stable reading?

What I have discovered: a TID of 13 are mainly Jefferson nickels
12 are Buffalo
11 V-nickels
10 shield nickels
And regardless of what you may read out there, IF you are looking for nickels, 10-13 is the nickel window.
Also silver “war”’nickels vary in TID, I found one with a TID of 17 and one at 19.

Clad dimes and copper pennies tend to overlap for me… 25-26 could be either one.
Zinc pennies read 20, but as they deteriorate they will read 16-20
IH cents can very too I have found… similar to zinc pennies.
I already mentioned the nickels in your other post, but Jim’s post can give you more detail about them.
New dollar coins read like a quarter.. 30.
About those jumpy numbers… when you get over a target, try to narrow your swing to stay right over top of it while checking it… that helps me a lot.
