Not Bad for a Quick Hunt

Here in April I saw the weather report was calling for a sunny day in the 70's so I took my new E-TRAC to work today. On the way home I stopped at a nearby dog park which has a farm house dating back to 1834.

After hunting around and finding a few odd relics I concentrated my search closer to the old farmhouse. The E-TRAC started giving me signals indicating dime and quarter size targets. I dug down about 6" and was rewarded with a pocket spill of two Silver quarters 1942 and 1950 also a 1954 Roosevelt Silver dime and four Wheat Pennies. Not too bad for a quick hunt after work!
