Those are some cool pics of a very nice find....very cool.

Here's the link to my field test post containing over 60 different hunts of various coil tests...field tests published in Western & Eastern Treasures Magazine...comparisons...nicer finds...etc..:

Been swingin' the coil since 1972

Started out in 1972 with a Jetco Detector...then the late 70's with a Whites 6000:whites:....then in 1981 went to a Bounty Hunter VLF TR 840:bounty:

Then in the early 1980's I went to a Whites 6000 Di Pro:whites:...mid 80's I went to a Whites Eagle II SL:whites:...Late 80's/Early 90's I went to the Whites XLT:whites:

1990's I used the Fisher CZ5, CZ6, CZ7, 7aPro, and CZ70Pro (still have)...and am currently doing some water hunting with my CZ-21:fisher:...

Started using Minelabs in 1999:minelab:

with a brief stint on the Musketeer while also using the CZ's...then in 2002 I switched to the Minelab Explorers and currently use the Explorer SE Pro as my main machine. I also use the Explorer 2 and E-trac often... and have a CTX3030 I use as a backup:minelab: Might also mention I have an arsenal of coils for the Explorers:thumbup:


"Metal detecting is an escape for me and allows me to find some much needed peace and solace.
Being able to clear my head...even if only for that short while...is much more meaningful than any amount of finds that end up in my pouch"

A few years back hunting season had just started here in Idaho. There was father going to take his boy who had just received his first hunting licenses out on opening day. The knew of a good place to go and had a great day!!!! They boy got his first elk. A record setting in Boone and Crockett. While cleaning the elk the boy happened to look up and see a real nice buck deer crossing the clearing up ahead of them. Having a deer tag he threw up his gun and dropped the buck which after retrieving it found is was just under Boone and Crockett records. Most detectorests will hunt a life time and not find one silver dollar. The price of your e trac might be worth many times what you paid for it if it comes with that luck. Would you consider trading straight across for my etrac and 3 coils? Congrat's of your great start and I hope your starting streak doesn't change!

Want cleaned pics of coins! Super finds brother! Your best bet is to find clean ground in the area "All metal" and noise cancel"

Hi Dirt,
I had the New E trac pretty much open in the Iron mask mode with a setting of just the lower 1/3 portion blacked out everything else was open. I had read earlier that the Big Silver was disc. out in the coin program but I really wasn't looking for any specific targets (coins, rings, etc.) I was just taken her out for her first live run and wanted to get a feel for anything that made a peep. I went to a place that is very easy to dig and has lots of old deep stuff including lots of iron, few coins, thingamajigs, and whatsits all mixed up. I dug allot of junky targets just to see and hear how the E would respond. I was totally shocked when the black leather pouch came up and it was heavy...knowing the age of the coins I have found there I imagined it could of held a Gold coin before i opened it up. But Hey LUCKY is LUCKY and I was totally syked to have found two Silver dollars. I have found a total of 5 over the years in other places and they are all good stories to tell...one day.

Best of luck to you
