What Will You Find?

11 Silver Day

Was invited by a friend to hunt a very old site that had some recent construction done & a few inches of dirt removed. This was only my 3rd hunt with my new Minelab E-TRAC so not knowing the machine I didn't expect to find much.

Boy was I wrong, I ended the day with 18 wheat pennies & 11 silver dimes.

After checking the dates, I realized one of the Mercs was a 1942-D with the 2 over the 1.

Needless to say I'm a very happy E-TRAC user.
