First Real Outing

Was detecting a old cellar site I presumed to be 1800s. Got a decent 12-41 on the E-TRAC at 6 inches or so. Dug down found a nail rescanned still a target and out pops another nail and this coin!!!!! Definetly dated the site alot older than I thought. Also found this 1700s buckle the same day. The coin is a 1785 colonial connecticut copper one cent coin!!! and did I mention this was the first real outing with the E-TRAC for me.
