My Second year with the MXT(and a $2000 dollar ring)

The MXT justs keeps getting better for me. This is my second year using the MXT and all my finds are up. I found 14 yellow and white gold rings this year but the biggest find was a diamond ring which appraised at $2000.00. You can see my wife has claimed it as well as a small pinky ring. The ring was found while hunting a tot lot.

I mostly hunt school yards, tot lots and sports fields. This year most of my finds have been made with the 6 x 10 coil. With the MXT I found 10163 clad coins for a total of $696.55, that’s double what I found last year. There’s a picture of my last load for the bank.

As you can see my old coin finds where also up. As you see I found 22 older coins including some Barbers, Mercurys, V Nickels, and War Nickels. I also got my two oldest Wheat Pennies a 1909 and 1910. I am super happy with these finds because except for one older 1901 school most of my sites are newer than 1950.

You just cannot go wrong with the MXT. It’s snowing now but I will be using the MXT in Texas this winter. I hope I will have more news for you when I get back.
