What Will You Find?

First Silver with My New E-TRAC

I got my new E-TRAC less than a month ago and was only able to hunt a couple time. I decided to get out in the cold weather and go to an old house in town that I got permission to hunt the day before. I wasn't there long and got a good tone.

Pulled out the plug and there it was a 1916 standing liberty quarter. I didn't know it was a rare mint until I got home and seen they only made 52,000 of them it paid for my E-TRAC and some.
