What Will You Find?

I Dug the KING of V Nickels...1885!!!

Hit a field tonite I hunted last year. Was hoping I missed a few keepers, well I was right!

First keeper of the nite was a general service CW button and about 30 minutes with no coins yet I get a nice smooth 12-12 signal and less than an inch deep out popped the KING of the V nickels!! 1885....woohoo!! Also got a toasted 1880 Indian, I am more than happy!

This E-TRAC has paid for itself more than 3x over!
