Default Silver Coins #9 and #10. Learning the nuances of the AT Max

Went and hit an old park that has been pounded over the years. I have searched it many times. I nailed two silver coins. Both were not obvious signals. The quarter was a quick chirp that bounced from 77 to 83 at 8 inches. It didn't repeat every time I swung over it unless I was in All METAL. I've learned that I have to really slow down and listen close to those small signals. It's so fun to realize that I'm getting better AND having fun! I also found 2 wheats. One is really roasted and very green. Im sure its an early one. Thanks for looking.

Very nice! I love it when a quarter shows up. They seem to be sneaky signals often and even a one way signal.
Congratulations on the multi silver hunt 👍

My AT Pro comes in today... So looking forward to taking it out on Thursday!

Your post was inspiring that way.

Glad I was inspiring! BTW I know you meant the AT Max, not the AT Pro.
