Gold Coin From the Far Past

Six hours walking on a heavy ploughed field, but the sun was shining. A great day to search. But after 50% of the time not one find, only some lead shrapnel.

Back in October of 2011, I purchased a Minelab E-TRAC after watching numerous videos on YouTube of success stories. My previous unit was a Garrett Ace 250 which I had for only about a year.

The village where I live is a village were even the Romans roam over the country. So it exists for a long time. We have encountered a lot of natural disasters. One of the most known is the big flood of 1953.

Myself and my club members went onto new permission and after finding many 303s and lead people were getting a bit despondent and moving to different fields, but I stayed and hit a flat patch of pasture my friend was about 50 metres with the camcorder.

First Silver with My New E-TRAC

I got my new E-TRAC less than a month ago and was only able to hunt a couple time. I decided to get out in the cold weather and go to an old house in town that I got permission to hunt the day before. I wasn't there long and got a good tone.

The E-TRAC Fulfils Dreams

I have learned that once you get to know your Minelab product, if the coin you desire is there, the detector will find it. Last year was a great year and I was able to scratch off many once in a lifetime coins from my list.

1756 Half Reale

My first target of the day and a very iffy target at that. I would get a good signal one out of 4 swings at different angles, but since it was high toned and deep I opened quick mask on the E-TRAC to see what it would read and it was in the iron range of 30-42, 28-42 and then it would bounce down to 17-42.

E-TRAC Finds Silver and Platinum Class Ring Missing For 31 Years RETURNED!!!

I just had to say thanks Minelab for another great season of hunts and finds with the Minelab E-TRAC. I sit here today reflecting back on the 2012 season and some of the great finds that I had made and realized that I had a story that I had a great heart-warming story that I just had to share with you. Towards the end of the 2012 season I had gotten permission to hunt a private yard in a local town and had no idea that it was to be the day that the E-TRAC would find one of my wish list finds and give me an absolutely priceless experience that I would not trade for anything and will always remember.
