#5 FTY-1876 Seated Dime in GREAT SHAPE!
Quote this message in a reply
I was talking with Leo last night and brought up the fact that in 7 years of detecting I've only found 2 seated. And just dimes.

Well today after work, I decided to go back to my "enamored" grass area and poke around. I was patterning back to the truck, which was still about 300 yards away, and I got this real soft high tone with the AT Pro. I mean real weak but steady. Digital was right on, 83, 84 through 86. It also pinpointed with the machine real soft but in a single, like 1" spot. Now in the back of my mind I'm thinking, oh great, a can at 16"! Hover test passed! Well, okay, we going to dig a big one! I took a plug out about 12" in diameter, (ground was like butter), and popped the whole enchilada out as one piece, about 8 inches thick. Carrot in the bottom of the hole is saying something is there, dead center. Dig another 3" or so and oh brother, I see something silver. HOLY CRAP! It's a SEATED! (I'm about a hundred feet from where I found the 1907 Barber) And this is my second 1876 seated dime! So they must've made a boatload of them!

So now I'm thinking, well, a seated at 11". Barely heard it and a good thing I decided to actually stop and check it out!

I think it's time for a BIGGER COIL than the 8.5x11!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have fun out there guys and gals and HAPPY HUNTING!

Ed

Thanks MRH and Relic! But I got no pointers, I just keep swinging! I just ordered a 12x13 NEL Tornado! I think Zach's got one down there in Jersey for his AT Pro. He ain't doin too bad!!!!

Going to be a wonderful season! I was looking for something like my 13" ultimate that I have on the Delta 4000 and I think I found it! Yes Was thinking of the NEL Attack but it's way to heavy for these old bones and the EMF where I hunt is ridiculous! Bigger the coil, BIGGER the receiving antenna! Why I even have to stop for a moment when the passenger jets take off over me with the 8.5x11 Garrett!

Holy smokes! That's quite a fine, Ed, and the condition is incredible, too. If that's not a banner worthy dig, I don't know what would be. Congrats Happy

What a grand find you have there Ed!  Lot of WOW factor for that beauty. It couldn't have been in circulation for too long to be in such great shape. I'm not a grader but I believe I'd slap at least a "very fine 35" moniker on her without fear. Congratulations friend.

What a find there ED.! Been awhile sense I posted on the forum. Last Nov., I brought the At pro as a backup detector still trying to learn it, I also brought the Detech 13″ Ultimate Search Coil for Garrett AT PRO . Can wait to see how the Nel coil works for you. Happy Hunting.
