    Thank God for nickels

    I went to the park to learn the language of the equinox itís gonna take me a while and I just came home with some modern bullets. I was sitting at home not feeling satisfied so I grabbed my F75 with the Snake Coil and went to my old permission. Scored a quick 1905 V Nickel and heading home with a smile on my face :-) Click image for larger version.

    Sometimes they call tried and true that for a reason. All machines have their little quirks, but most should be good to go out of the box. What is not required of any MD user is to learn how to tweak a machine - and sometimes folks tweak them beyond redemption and have to go back to the factory presets. My factory presets always work well for me.

    I've never found a V nickle. I found a shield once. Quite a few Buffs too, and even 2 or 3 war nickles. I wish nickles came out of the ground better.

    For some reason nickels are one of my favorite coins to find especially the old ones. I have found Buffs and V's but no Shield. I think I like nickels so much because there are so many people that just wont dig them because their machines will not ID them very good thus causing them to dig lots of pull tabs. I will not use a machine that is not good on nickels. My Quest Pro is very good at determining nickels from tabs. Congrats on your V and Happy Hunting !!!!

    As a nickel lover the shield with Rays made me start laughing like a small child. Just got it 3 weeks ago. Click image for larger version.
