X-Terra 705 Finds a Standing Liberty Quarter In Great Condition

When I first got my X-Terra 705, I went to a 1925 house. The only things the house was yeilding was a bunch of wheat pennies and 1 indian head. I finally got a great signal about 8-10 inches down in the ground. I was so excited to finally get a silver signal. It registered as a 42 on the meter and when I dug it, I thought I was digging a Washington. When I saw the eagle flying on the back of the quarter when I pulled it out, my hands were shaking. It was a 1927 Standing liberty Quarter! I couldn't believe that I found that. I now wear the quarter on a necklace at all times when I am metal detecting at new houses. The Minelab X-Terra 705 made my hunt and is a great detector. Thanks Minelab!
