What Will You Find?

Rock Solid Detector

I got my E-TRAC about a month ago. Been going to this old home site and this place had a lot of trash (iron crown tops etc). So I thought I would swing close to the front entrance, about ten feet from the porch I got a high tone and dug. Out popped a 1954 half dollar, my first silver ever. I was so excited I turned the E-TRAC off and left lol. Went back two days later and found a 1963 dime, it was great. I also took it to the beach and let me tell ya, in the sand the E-TRAC is solid as a rock, if it says it a dime it’s a dime. Same for pull tabs this thing rocks on the beach. Thanx Minelab, I love my E-TRAC!
