I arrived at the site at 7:15 this morning. The yard had been heavily soaked with a water sprinkler yesterday evening, so the digging was going to be easy. The area that I was going to detect was approximately 60 x 30 feet.

My Cibola had the NEL Sharpshooter coil attached. I decided to set the discrimination at nail reject in hopes of finding some gold jewelry, a little negative on the ground balance, a slight hum on the threshold and full sensitivity.

I had high hopes of finding several silver coins since the two houses 2 and 3 doors down the street produced a total 12 silver coins just from their front yards. I started off finding a bunch of wheat pennies and ended up finding 18 of them.

Finding wheat pennies is a great sign that I'm at a good location, but where's the SILVER? I found a Junior Sheriff Badge. I was beginning to believe that junior didn't have nothing but wheat pennies to lose.

Finally, I strong good sounding audio signal between the curb and sidewalk. I popped a 1964 Washington Quarter that's is in really condition.

Towards the end of the hunt I unearth what I thought was a gold lady's watch. It turns out to be a 10k gold filled. A real heart breaker, but there's gold to in it.:laughing7:

For what it's worth, the watch discriminates out at pull tab. It pays to keep the discrimination set low. That could have been the real deal or a large gold wedding band.

At 9:15 I decide call it a day and head for home. It's going to be awhile before I do anymore detecting, because the high heat combined with the hard ground isn't much fun to detect in.

If I was finding Silver every time and I think everyday lately, there's no way I could wait till fall for cooler temps! I can only hunt at daylight for a couple hours or in water later in the day down here. Congrats on more silver and the watch!

It sure is, I have it soaking in olive oil. It was about 2 to 3 inches deep and looks to be in good condition.

Tabman, don't stop detecting because I enjoy armchair detecting when I do not have time to go and your silver counts lately amaze me!

Gunnar I need to watch another one of your great detecting videos. Your modded Silver µMax must be really fun to swing.
