Never Thought it Would be This Great

I can't believe it! I found another silver today. I never actually thought it would be this great. I thought it was going to better, but not like this. I used my old detector for 2.5 years. I found 2 silver dimes, both Roosevelt's, both shallow, most likely new drops. I have had my E-TRAC for 3 weeks. I have found three silver coins already, two mercs and now a Washington!!!!

I don't know what makes this machine so great but it is. I'm not sure if it is it's depth, all my coins have been shallow. I'm convinced it is it's ability to "see" those coins alongside all of that trash. I found a wheat today that was in the hole with a rusty nail, and a large pull-tab.

The E-TRAC was able to distinguish between those signals and "show" me the wheat. Amazing!! OK, on to today's hunt. I went back to the neighborhood that I found my last merc, and continued to work the sidewalk strips. As you can see I had an over 100 clad coin day, a few wheats, and my first silver quarter!!! I also found the interesting "tag" with the woman's face on it. I have no idea what it is. I can't wait to get after it again. HH
