First Time Out with E-TRAC = Beautiful Silver

I was excited to get out in the fields with the detector I had heard so much about and saved hard to get.

Around two hours into my hunt, I was happy with my new machine, having found some deeply buried coins from the 1930's & 40's, a nice Medieval buckle and some older buttons.

Then I got a great signal, very clear, and dug this great condition George II shilling with Lima under the bust to show the coin is made from silver taken from the Spanish by Admiral Anson.

This is my first 1700's silver and what a cracker! Can't wait to get back out there with the E-TRAC.
