What a Beauty!
The E-TRAC is my third Minelab machine. I thought my Explorer II could not be beaten but it was. I spent the weekend in North Wales on a site near to a 10th Century Church that was built on an even earlier site. Had a great day with spectacular scenery, peace and quiet, a cold can of Guinness but best of all I found four hammered coins and a Roman Bulla. Three of the coins were Elizabeth 1st and I've found several similar coins in the past. Then, just as I was finishing my Guinness came that lovely clear peep. About a foot down I found the coin that makes it all worthwhile. An Edward 6th Shilling... Fantastic.[split]
He was 10 years old when crowned and died aged 16 making his coins pretty rare, but what a beauty and what an excellent machine the E-TRAC is. I stuck it on e-bay with a silly reserve on just to see what it was worth, sorry e-bay but it's a great way of getting a true valuation of a coin!! (Please don't grass me up for passing on this tip :-). Take a look at the coin, 12 inches down in pasture with a signal that was clear as a bell... amazing.
