What Will You Find?

Over The Moon

I was on a new field with our club, and with my E-TRAC that I have had for several months now, the field was a little quiet, and our members were saying on the radio that there was not a lot of finds, apart from buttons and a few Georgian coins. I was just about to go to lunch, when I had a "ping" the screen showed 11:15 and 12:15, so I knew I had a good target. I began to dig and oh my word, the machine and I had found a Charles 1st penny in very nice condition. My very first Charles I was and still over the moon, such a lovely coin, and even more respect and love for the E-TRAC.
