    23 For 23!! 5 Silver, 16 Wheats ~ Sterling Medal, Sterling CZ Earring!!

    Hello My Friends!!

    It was yet another fine day in the turf this morning!! I managed 21 keepers today in my "Honey Hole" spot in a little over 3 hrs. The breakdown was 5 Silver (1 gem '53 Washington, 2 '44 Mercs, 1 Sterling St. Christopher Medal, 1 .925 CZ earring), along with 16 Wheaties(dates '30-'58). Most of the coins, along with the sterling religious medal were down around 9". I was picking through the low conductor trash and iron at a very slow pace to hear those deepies. This was not a new spot. It was the same spot I've been hunting now for the past 3-4 weeks. Sometimes I wonder how I missed these signals before when I see my old plugs right next to some of these finds I made today. It has a lot to do with the angle you swing your coil over the ground in relation to the trash and deep keeper targets. That's what makes it so much fun for me!! Mike(ratman) joined me for a little today, and we compared some signals between his Quattro and my SE. In almost all of the deep coin signals, the SE gave a more truer/solid fluty response than Mike's Quattro did.

    I'm starting to lose count of the number of consecutive hunts I've struck silver with my SE Pro Coil .....I believe I'm at 23 now!!

    The ring on top of my Wheaties was a beach find in the wet sand on Tuesday about 10 down from the surfline. I was detecting with DrJoePrime that day. It sure was a heart stopper when I saw it gleaming in the bottom of my scoop. There was no corrosion on it. Unfortunately, my diamond tester said CZ's. That's one of my better junk rings I've ever found.

    Thanks for looking and responding!!
    Keep The Passion High!!

    Thanks, Nick! I'm just taking it one hunt at a time. So you have trouble sleeping too? I can't sleep when I keep thinking if my streak will continue on my next hunt.

    Thanks, DaytonDigger!! Yeah, it's a nice looking Quarter!! It was my first signal of the day. I parked my car, and walked down some steps and hunted next to an old sycamore tree. About 5 ft from the tree, "Bam", I dug the beauty!!


    Good luck to you out there!!
