Headed out this morning for a hunt. There was a weather advisory out for a good dump of snow in Edmonton, so I hunted anyway. It was a comfortable -7C / 19.4F to detect. The ground was pretty hard, so I brought along my pick-ax. There were some good signals to be had!

My very first signal was repeatable 83. I was expecting a modern penny, but to my surprise, a 1929 silver dime popped out at about 2 inches deep. Next 2 coins came from the same hole....a measured 9" deep. Out popped a 1918 large cent and a 1935 small cent. Up higher on the slop popped out a 1933 small cent. It was quite a surprise to get these finds today, It was a week ago that I got that gold ring in the same area. Got to go back again. :headbang:

Hey John, do you use hand warmers on your detector and if you do what kind?

Glad you could get out and most of all find something! Here a pick ax wouldn't work very well need a Jack-Hammer is more like it. Ground is frozen with three inches of ice on top. Get it when you can and HH

As a Washingtonian, the Canadian cent coin has me faked out more than anything.

They ring up as an American silver dime every time. I basically guess my targets are Canadian cents when they sound like a silver dime.

Congrats on the silver!
