    I got off work this morning and had time to kill before having to go to the range to qualify for work. I had a permission nearby and figured I try a different mode on my AT Max to see if I could find anything further. I had beaten these field up and thought Iíd squeezed everything out of them. I was pleasantly wrong!!! I got part of a suspended clip, an unknown date Wheatie, a 1928 Mercury dime, and a 1899 Barber dime!! Guess Iíll try the other modes and see what else happens!!

    I was using zero mode and switched over to custom. I set the discrimination at 35 due to all the iron and removed all the notches. Really helped!!!
