What Will You Find?

Very Impressed With This Machine

All I can say is amazing! I received my E-TRAC on Friday November 4th, 2011. In only two outings with the E-TRAC I have dug 4 silver coins. The 4th silver coin was dug at 8 inches. When I recovered it, I thought to myself that someone must have hammered it or it was placed on a train track. I chalked it up to being a Barber Dime and didn't think anything of it.

I posted my find on various forums and what the forum members found was amazing!! It wasn't a Barber dime, but a 1796 Draped Bust Dime. Unfortunately the coin is extremely worn, but still recognizable. I am very impressed with this machine and so happy I chose the E-TRAC. Thank you Minelab!!
