  5. Beautiful Swiss coin (.835 Silver)

    I get a lot of foreign coins too. I like researching foreign coins. This is my first foreign silver coin. It’s a millimeter or so smaller than a US quarter. Weight is 5 grams. GL&HH

  13. Beautiful GW

    I like it a lot and I highly recommend it. It’s perfect for getting under and in tight against bushes and such. Target separation is outstanding, I pulled this GW from under a big shade tree I had already hunted with the standard coil.
