E-trac strikes first silver

Went out for a 1/2 hour hunt after work.
Got a good tone. Didn't know it was sterling silver because I got my E-trac yesterday and haven't found anything with it yet till tonight. Pretty good start, huh?
Penny is just for size.

Congrats Tony! Your old sites are going to open back up with the E-Trac. It gets addictive the more you use it and the more you learn it. Keep us posted! HH

There were a couple silverfish hits that were deep. The first 6 inches was easy digging. It was a super struggle hand digging down to 10 inches. I had to give up on two of those hits.
I'll go back probably in the Spring when that hard ground is a lot more diggable. Right now it's like rock and concrete. Other places are much kinder with nice sandy soil.

Yea, it will be interesting to see how well I do with this detector. I'm just now learning it. Good thing I went from the Explorer SE Pro to this. But this detector is set up a whole lot differently.

Andy's book may be a help to you. It often compares the E-Trac and Explorer side by side quite a bit. I found the book helpful when I was learning to use the machine.

That is a good looking old medal Tony!
That is the reason I metal detect, is to find cool stuff like that.

Tony, Congrats on your first E-TRAC silver. I detected a neighbor's yard yesterday with mine and pulled what looks to be a 1918S Merc. I'll try and post a pic.
