    Found a Honey Hole of clad

    I decided to get out to a nearby school this weekend and found an area behind an old baseball field near the wood line about 40'x20'. Targets were everywhere, so after spending about 3 hours total these were the result and most were 1"-4." The school site dates back to the late 1800's and is within a quarter mile of where I dug the 1838 dime.

    A few of the quarters and dimes are '65, so I'm hoping for a silver...there's still plenty of targets!

    Plenty of battery cash there. You certainly have found a spot where the kids were careless with their allowences.

    That's a bunch of clad. My hand hurts just thinking about digging all of that up.

    Best of luck to you.... perhaps after the more modern coins are dug off of the top, old coins will be below them.

    Congrats on having an amazing cladfest hunt. The clad adds up quickly, especially when you pull that much per hunt. I pulled about $500 in clad last season. I have a bank account set up for my hobby and the funds are used for coin supplies, detector repairs and upgrades. It keeps the kitchen committee out of the MD purchases that I deem necessary. Gotta love a hobby that funds itself.

    Great minds thing alike. I also connected a paypal account to mine. My hobby account is with a different bank than the family account just so that if it's ever hacked, the family funds are not affected.

    Very cool, , my kind of hunt. That place has not been hit in awhile. I can almost guarantee that there is silver there. It is deep and beyond the ACE 250's abilities.
    I'm not knocking your detector, I had a 350 and still have the AT PRO. I have paid off the costs of all my machines in just clad alone. Digging clad totals like you did and continue to do will put a serious dent in the purchase price of a second hand E-trac. The E-trac will get down to the silver. Excellent hunt. I paid $900 for a second hand E-trac on line. Good luck buddy.

    pick a small area and run all metal mode. the more you dig the easy ones the better stuff will start to show. be aware of the bounce hits that can be layered coins. a bounce from nickel to qtr. can be just that. if a zincoln gets pulled a Rosie may be an inch away. trash hits are not always trash--just too much for the processor to decipher. just dig 'til there be nuttin' to dig:-)

    I recently picked up a DD for the GTI 2500 and that's what I was using. When I have it worked over satisfactorily, I'll go back over it with a concentric coil just to see. I'd love an E-trac and was considered getting one, but truth be known I'm still in the dog house for getting the GTI. But one day...
