First Hunt With My New E-TRAC

I just got the E-TRAC and the first time I take it out of my back yard I hit silver! & not just any silver but a 1893 Barber! In good condition for a 118 year old coin! This is a pretty old find for us in the states. Could not be happier with my new E-TRAC and its ability to lock onto silver like a hawk onto a mouse!

I have been collecting coins for a while but never have a had a feeling like the one I got when I dug one up!
