Silver Beach yesterday: 8 silver coins!
When I went to Silver Beach a couple weeks ago, I was shocked to see the ocean frozen and beach snowed in. Was worried yesterday that it’d be the same. Fortunately all was thawed and I wanted to try a new 17” coil for the CTX.
It’s a bit heavy but within 10 minutes had two wheat cents. Then got a deep 12-40 (roughly a wheat cent signal but not quite). Out of the hole I got a war nickel. Figured there was something else in the hole because there’s no way it should signal that high. Scanned the nickel and found that it was in fact the signal. What the heck? Any ideas why it’d ring up so high? I will weigh it soon to see if maybe some of the lower conductive metal was leached (leeched?) from it. No idea why.
The coil does seem to get deeper but was hard to pinpoint and getting it down into the holes was hard because the hole had to be made bigger to fit it.
Ended the day with 6 silver dimes. Two of them make me sad how thin they are. Also got a war nickel and a silver Washington.
Some other notables are a 1937 buffalo nickel, 14 wheat cents, older toy car, junk jewelry, and a catholic pendant that looks silver but I feel it may be lead or similar metal.
Guess silver beach is still going. Really wanted a piece of gold though. There has to be one more piece there right??
