I wanted to try a "new procedure" to increase my number of "quarter" finds and hopefully increase my "half dollar" finds - and possibly even SILVER finds - and to reduce my number of "up & downs" digging pennies & junk. SO, I cranked up the "discrimination" on the SIMPLEX+ to reject ALL targets below a quarter to see if I could accomplish my GOAL of finding at least 40 quarters (which is a roll) and see if any Half Dollars could be found. THE CONCLUSION? Yes it seemed to work the first time out with a large decrease of "up & downs" and finding $11.11 in total face value which included a total of 44 coins = 2- Kennedy Half Dollars, 40-Quarters and 1-Dime & 1-cent (that was in the hole of a quarter that I dug). ALSO I beat my "$ all time record per coin" to an unbelievable $ .2525 average per coin found in one outing. (Sorry, I know I am a "numbers Guy:thumbsup:")
Happy Hunting & GOOD LUCK Everyone............BILL
