Old high school hunt

I was finally able to get out for a couple of hours today. I went to an old abandoned high school that's been very stingy with goodies the last few hunts. I decided to put SEF 8x6 on the Etrac abd crank the sens up a bit to see of I could snipe anything from amongst the trash. First signal was the 43 nickle, about 30 minutes the later I get a jumpy vdi, but repeatable tone, 7" down and tilted on edge, out pops the 1876 Injun. 18" to the left I get another jumpy vdi, but a nice tone, I get a 1941 sixpence, the last thing I expected [Image: smiley.gif] It's concave and has 2 holes directly across from each other [Image: huh.gif] I decided to rescan the spot from a different angle and I get a hit right next to the plug that the Indian came from. About 5 inches down I get the rosy. After that I had to hit the trail. Turned out to be a nice little variety of keeper

Good to hear from you! Great finds for a sniping hunt!! I do that with my SE Pro but it takes so long to cover such a small area and sometimes it's just wheats and deep bottlecaps. You hit it well this time! Thanks for sharing! Looks like that sixpence may have been part of a bracelet! Still counts as a silver!! WTG Dan!!! YesBeer

Dan(NM) - very cool finds, congratulations! The SEF helped you score those finds, if you have a larger SEF like 10 X 12 - I would go back there with that coil
