now that I am starting to get used to my new etrac , I am going back to old sites that I Hammered to death years ago with my Garret grandmaster , with 4 different coils .At that time 20-30 years ago I found lots of coins . I stopped going , when I could not find anymore . Also told members of my detecting club to go there and see what they could find . No one could find anything . UPDATE - I just went there again 25 years later with new etrac ,and Im finding coins again , mostly 5,and 10 cent silver that the Garret would not detect . Its nice - no research just visit old sites wow . - mike

I did the same thing when I got my E-Trac. It was like hunting brand new sites and I was amazed at the things I had missed. I found even more when I hit the really trashy areas with a small coil and the E-Trac. Good luck and hope you make lot's of great finds.

Yes, it's always worth going back to old sites that you have already hunted - I've done it many times and it's resulted in a lot of good finds !
It's worth going back if you have a different machine, a different coil, a new program, when the ground is water saturated, etc.
It can also be a lot easier than going to a new site - you already have permission to hunt area and you already know the lay of the land !
