Silver coin number 13 –with the CZ-3D

19 May

I went out this evening to hunt my honey hole with the CZ-3D. I decided to put the eight inch coil back on the CZ and hit the site with a more relaxed attitude.

Well, my strategy paid off with a repeat of this morning’s hunt (plus a few nickels). First I hit a dateless Buffalo nickel. The CZ correctly identified the coin as a nickel with a nice repeatable signal. The coin was barely three inches deep. Next I hit three Jefferson nickels –1941,1949 and 1979, all correctly identified with a high tone using the Enhanced mode. Finally, the CZ gave me a nice, repeatable signal on the High Coin slot. When I dug the four inch hole, a beautiful 1944 Mercury silver dime stared at me from the ground. This is my first silver coin found using the CZ-3D.

    I had a feeling you were going back. Congratulations on the finds. How long did you stay?

      I got these other two coins at the honey spot near Riverside park. I hunted for a little over an hour with the CZ-3D
