View Full Version : Silver along abandon sidewalks

02-14-2011, 12:30 PM
So i park my car along side this old unused sidewalk get out and in three swings get a nice 78 VDI and dig up a 1964 silver Rosie that fast! :peace:,now that's how i like to start my hunts!! I just worked this narrow grass strip for about two hours,trying to isolate the signals amid the overloads and tried to dig most signals that were three inches or deeper,this method helped me find a second silver Rosie and a 44 wheat. I also dug a US collar insignia and a couple of clad dimes rounded out the hunt. (easy to tell which ones they are in the pic :grin:) Doubt if i would have found the silver with a larger coil as this area is LITTERED!!!
The silver is still out there but you really have to wade through some trash in this area to find it.
Thanx for looking!

Great couple of silvers! Nice US piece too. :happydance01: Sometimes I liked that 5.3 better than the 4x6 coil for depth. What a way to start a hunt thumbsup01
