    What exactly is a "wilver"???

    Ok, I'm kind of new to MD'ing, having my detector for about a year now, but I read a lot of posts about these wilver things. When there are pictures along with the descriptions it appears that the "wilvers" look a lot like silver coins. How do you tell the difference between a wilver dime and a silver dime? At one time I thought that the term "wilver" meant a signal that indicated a copper wheat cent but when actually dug up it was really a silver coin instead. I'm really confused, maybe someone will take pity on my ignorance and clue me in.
    Thanks Bros

    On the cpu key board the W is above the S so obvious for those of us that type too fast it is an error that should ne Silver. Hope this helps. Did you catch the NE for BE?

    wilver = silver a key board typo that "caught on" with certain people -- w being right above s on the keyboard --- coppa is metal detector "slang" for an old colonial copper coin -- hope that helps

    It's a slang word for silver that a couple nerds from PA came up with.

    Same goonie brothers call copper "coppa".

    it's wild silver. can be elusive and hard to catch. that is why we hunt it and take it home and make pets out of it!
    if you can't run with the big dogs, stay on the porch!

    I guess those couple of nerds would be "The Three Datectateers," the originators of coppa and wilver.

    Thanks for the kind comment, you looney biscuit boy.

    Those early PA settlers did too much and that is why coppas are found in abundance!

    The Three Datectateers will miles to find the Colonial "stuff"!

    KirkKyleChris (KKC) and to those long-forgotten, coppa-dropping settlers!
