I took my White's MXT with the 6" Excelerator search coil to an old park today. When I got to the park I saw that park employees were working near the play area. They had dug up a bunch of sod and had dug a hole in the center. I went over to talk with them and found that they were about to plant a tree. I ask for permission to hunt the area where the sod had been removed and they said OK.

I had only made a few sweeps of my coil when I located two targets within inches of each other. One target read a quarter and the other read a dime. I dug both targets and recovered two silver coins, a 1942 quarter and a 1934 Mercury dime. I don't dig a lot of silver coins so I was pretty excited. The 6" DD Excelerator search coil never ceases to amaze me with its abilities to get deep and separate the targets. After those recoveries I continued with my hunt and found some clad coins,a key, a gold dollar, a junk ring and a cool photo button of Elvis Presley. Not a bad day wouldn't you agree?
