Good day today but an awfully long one. Hit a park real early, way North of me, and found one wheat and enough bottlecaps to make a scrapper rich!!! Left and went back to the area I found those last two Mercs at and thought it was going to be a bust with just another wheat and a harmonica reed. Tooled through the grass on my way back to the truck and got stopped in my tracks by this real tight high tone that would only hold a 28 and 29 for a briefest moment. If it weren't for the tone I wouldn't have dug it. Turns out to be a 35 Merc with an old Jefferson nickel 1" away. That really made my day as I had been out for a total of 6 hours and was getting pretty beat. The next few days the weather is going down the toilet so I think I've got my fix in for the next week or so. We have been literally blessed by great weather and I'm hoping that in the next month or so we get a turnaround to full time Spring!!

Have fun out there and HAPPY HUNTING!!!

Ed/ODF

Scott, I wouldn't say spidey sense but lucky for sure. That grass I spoke of is about 4 acres with 2 small ballfields.... and I've gone over it haphazardly about a dozen times going from the truck to the woods and back. That's the first time I've found silver in that grass area. But it has me wondering now. I think maybe when the weather gets better I'll grid it out and start looking for the iffy signals like that Merc showed. Although I have dug a good deal of clad out of the area, yesterday I was so tired I passed up clad dime and penny signals because the tone just wasn't there. This one was too high and too tight to be iron or clad. Just a teeny little spot about 1/2 inch square and the Merc along with the nickel was only at a depth of about 4 inches. So if there are any more silvers there they were missed simply because of that mixing of signal. The place has been hammered to death. I meet fellas who have done it years in the past with White's and Garrett's and they cleaned up pretty good. Doesn't mean that they covered it all though, as proved by that little silver yesterday and the woodsy two the prior day. I think spidey sense could be better described as persistence and knowing your machine. And just for publicity I may apply for a marriage license because I love my SE Pro!! Chuckle

Holy cow Ed! You sure know how to find them. I often wondering if you and others could find that much silver around Florida. From what other longtime Detectorist told is No, not that amount. It has to be there to find it, and florida had few establishments. Anyway, I know you put a lot into it, and your finds are well deserved. You have a way of making us want to move!!! Thanks for sharing and adding so much details to you posts. Those tips really help us. Thanks again. GL HH!
