    Todays CW finds from the 1850's site

    I was able to get back to the CW site today and was able to pick up a couple of first's for me from this place. The Great Coat button and the A button have eluded me since I started hunting the place. Finally the button god had mercy and bestowed it's graces upon me twice. I was hunting an area that I had gone over before, but, this time I went east to west instead of north to south. All the targets were a dig me, no doubt about it hits( I suck) just flat missed them. The bottom button is a 1 piece and looks older than the others, I cannot tell if there's anything on it or not.

    My settings were....

    Nox 800

    Park 2

    Recovery 5

    Iron bias 2

    Sens 19

    Auto GB

    No disc

    2 Tones

    Tone break from-9 to +8

    11" coil

    Another great hunt Dan, congrats on the A & Great coat buttons & the D, your bottom button sure appears to have something on it, congrats on all the saves
    Any day of hunting, whether good or bad is better than not hunting at all

    Thank you!! All I did was run them under water and used a toothbrush on them, then rubbed them with my finders. This soil is almost pure desert sand and drains very quickly, everything comes out looking like the day it was dropped.

    I think the color difference is the lighting, I had an LED light on and the flash from my camera.
