52 quarter
2 46 dimes
A 43 silver nickel with a P!
46 nickle
82 Canadian nickle
8 wheats
5 non wheats

All the silver and most of the wheats were all within 10 feet of eachother..
Some were VERY deep..
I’m not sure if this is a “spill”, in a wash where water concentrated heavies, or possibly a person buried them in a spot and they washed down the hill a bit..

I am 99% sure their are more in that spot, but these were all the ones within the depth range of the etrac, and I need to go back with a real shovel and see about finding more..
Clear the overburden a bit, and a real shovel to get more of the SUPER deep signals I think I’m getting like barely faint blips I can’t get to repeat and threshold nulls..

This is not in a park.. This is on a very old very difficult trail that they kindof closed for safety reasons.. Extremely steep..

This was just off the old trail in the woods..
Same place I found that 77 gold class ring and pocket watch, but this is a good 200 feet down the hill from there..

This sight produces!
And the silver slayer slayed my first silver!

Look at that depth gauge on the etrac just pegged deep!

VDI doesn’t work super well THAT deep, but in this spot I’m going back with a shovel to even dig the threshold nulls I get where I found all of these silvers within 10 feet of eachother..

The silver nickel was one that was reading 01: 30-something and pegged depth, barely repeatable tone..

I played and played with the settings and pumped the sensitivity to find that one, and still I’m sure their are more I just can’t get a lock on (and dig with what I had)..

And these old cans..
How old do you figure these types of cans are?

Congrats on your great silver finds! I like the beer can too! I'm thinking 30s or 40s?

I left the beer can there.. Their are tons of them out there..
I might keep one if it was in really good shape, but that's unlikely..

I just asked about the beer can age/dating so I could get an idea of the dating of the usage of the area..

Old beer can = old stuff in the ground = silver coins... Hopefully..

It's hard for me to find anything very old..

I hear rivers are low in places? Heh..
All of the inland lake swimming beaches are way underwater here.. Lakes are up like 10-15 feet..
Rivers are swamps..

Nice going on the silvers.
Are you using discrimination on the machine?

Sometimes yes and sometimes no..

When searching hard for more deeper, no..
And played with all settings I could think of to try to detect deeper..
Put the 15” coil on to try to get deeper..
Dug 6” off the top to get deeper..

No more coins there, lol..

The discrimination on this etrac is amazing..
I found the first of these with pretty heavy discrimination on..

Tesoro compadre, which can find needles, but looking for something with a bigger coil/detects deeper, waterproof salt/fresh user friendly.
