    Special day - What I didn't find

    Not much to photograph, 4 quarters, 6 dimes, 2 nickels and 36 pennies (one wheatie). Only had about 2 hours to hunt a modern campsite, but had lots of fun finding clad. It was all ding, ding, dig for 48 coins in less than 2 hours. Most of the area was mulch covered, so digging and refilling holes was very easy. Most of the coins were 1" or less. The finds were not that special, but what made my day was what I didn't find!

    I had the Ace 250 set on Jewelry/coin mode and dug every good signal. The amazing things I did not find were:

    Zero - pull tabs (even the iffy signals turned out to be coins)
    Zero - Foil
    Zero - rotten Zincons. Found several Zinc cents, but all of them were in good shape.

    I only dug one piece of trash, a brass snap/button that gave that almost gold signal.

    Well said. That's why I don't feel so bad when I empty yet another double handful of muddy canslaw into my trashcan.

    Not at all.

    In fact, I agree with you. The reason I posted this is because this site was Sooo... CLEAN. I was digging every signal on Jewelry mode. Even signals that bounced from tab to coin came up coins.

    I am not good enough to dig only coins even if I tried to cherry pick signals. I didn't dig any tabs, 'cause I didn't detect any tabs. That is what was amazing about the site.

    Most days, Tabs love me. Sometimes, I would swear that they just jump in my pocket all by themselves.
