A great day out with my favourite detector (my E-TRAC), walking on an old coach road in Amherst NH, found a junction and something look like an old foundation, switch to my 6" DD EXcelerator EQ 2 Pro and "hunted" the main entrance of this old home... (oh yeah I need it few min to change my coil in this time my buddy did a loop around the foundation with his Garrett) let’s call it "experience" and with a great detector I pulled a large cent and this amazing 3 sols French coin few inches in front of the front steps...

Some details I found about it:

    Country: Isle de Bourbon
    Series: Colonial Coinage
    Catalog codes: World Coins km1
    Issued on: 1779
    Last issue date: 1780
    Distribution: Standard Circulation
    Composition: Billon
    Denomination: 3 French sou
    Description: crown above 3, louis XVI

P.S. Just wanna say thanks Minelab, for building a quality machine that works great. I'll never get a different brand detector ever again, I tried a Whites and Garret before my Quattro and now upgrade to a E-TRAC -"super machine"
