Thread: First Silver of the Year

  1. #1

    Wink First Silver of the Year

    I hunt with a White's V3I and I bought a new SEF 8x6 coil for it and have been breaking it in. So I went to a church built in 1875. A very hard hit site because it's still standing, by a highway, and but no longer used and slowly rotting. I ran my detector pretty hot, 3 frequency, best data, 5 high filter, minimal discrimination just -88 to -94 VDI, sensitivity 10, discrimination 94, with TX boost on. All my finds 6 inches or deeper. A couple of the coins were at 10 to 11 inches. I was surprised at the quantity and quality of my finds with my new coil. The coins are 2 1906 IH's, 1918 wheat, 1941 wheat, and a 1902 Barber quarter.
    Thanks for looking!

    Nice work with the new SEF coil. I have the 8x6 and the 10x12, they are great coils and have dramatically increased my finds over the stock coils. Love the Barber,

    Thanks! Sometimes they're better then other times, but they're almost always nicer then the coppers you'll dig.

    Thanks, nobody was as surprised as me when that barber popped out of the ground! The vdi was sketchy because it was right next to a big piece of iron, so I had no idea what it was other then a diggable target.

    Can't beat the V3i when it has a coil that's working right.
