A New E-TRAC and a Week of Firsts

I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you for making such a great product. I've had my Minelab E-TRAC for about three weeks now and couldn't be more pleased! This past week I've been detecting in a small park near my house and have made more quality finds in one week with the E-TRAC than I did last year with my other detectors. I found three new "firsts" for me this week alone. The "firsts" include a no date buffalo nickel, a 1914-D and 1912 Barber dime, and a beautiful 1923 Standing Liberty quarter. The E-TRAC helped me sniff out a silver coin spill at 7" which include a worn Standing Liberty quarter, two 1944 Mercury dimes, a 1947 Roosevelt dime and three wheat pennies. I attribute this sudden change in "luck" to the quality machine that I dangle from my arm. Thank you Minelab for what you do, and I can't wait to see what comes next.
