    A dime trifecta that got me to a big milestone

    On Labor Day I detected most of the day in an old town that I have had some great success at over the years. I detected a couple parks and a couple old schools and by the end of the day a found a 1914 Barber Dime, 1945 merc and a 1946 Rosie. Also found a crusty 1898 IHP and a couple Buffs.

    The second silver was career #1,000! I started detecting back in 2012 and briefly started with a Garret Ace 150, then quickly purchased a Minelab eTrac and after a few years I bought an XP deus. Now I use the Equinox 800 but I am tempted to get the new Minelab Manticore (I guess it won't be available until early next year) or deus 2.

    Thanks for looking! Jared

    Thanks DOD! Yeah the Manticore might be a cross of Equinox and CTX 30/30...but we will see. Always a lot of hype and no one knows for sure until they start shipping them and people start posting/making videos. Hope the release goes better than how the Equinox went!
