Pounded Park Produces Finds

After getting into the hobby a few years back and reading all the great success stories Minelab owners had I took the plunge and finally got my own. I chose the E-TRAC and it's produced for me, my silver coin finds picked up dramatically and the most recent find was a 1903 Barber Half Dollar out of a park that has been pounded by several different detectorist over the years and some even saying they thought it was hunted out. Thank you Minelab, I am one happy customer.
