War Nickel Found with Fisher F5

Man, the Fisher F5 has been proving to be a great metal detector! In 4 hunts it has found a rare token, a silver roosevelt dime, and then recently these two keepers! Of course part of that is due to the location, but the Fisher F5 has been doing it’s job well!

This 1945 Silver ‘war nickel’ was a jumpy signal on the F5. It jumped from nickel to tab occasionally, but the tone was good enough to get my attention. After struggling to locate it in the plug, I finally found it in the root layer. Imagine that, a 69 yr old coin only a couple of inches deep! This is silver coin #2 for the year, and silver coin #2 for the Fisher F5 in just 4 hunts!

Later on I got a medium tone in the nickel range and dug down about 4 inches and found this ring. It’s from the 1950’s and is a silver plated Roy Rogers Saddle Ring. This style is one of two styles. The other one is silver and has Roy Rogers signature on the saddle.

All things considered, I enjoyed my latest hunt and found some cool finds!

You can’t beat that!

    Nice finds. I used to find those war nickels a lot back in the 70’s, 80’s but have not dug any since coming to Texas. Then again I tend move on when I get those iffy signals….the bad back starts talking to me.

      Thanks! Yeah, jumpy signals can be a crap shoot as they say. If I hear a sweet tone mixed in there, even if it breaks up I usually dig it and see what it is, and a few times I’ve been surprised at what I found. This was one of those times.
