Spanish Colonial Silver in Missouri

With all the glitz and glamor surrounding Minelab's new Equinox, you'd think it was the best thing since opposable thumbs and Cheezy Poofs. Maybe so, but right now I am still madly in love with my CTX. I went out on a hunt with my wife, who recently got an E-Trac. We tore up a well-hunted public park with our FBS machines and came away with some deep treasures. I pulled 6 silver, including my first ever 1 real. It is a Charles III that is extremely worn and holed. No date, sadly. 1700's coins are rare as hen's teeth here in Mid-Missouri, so I was glad to have it. Found a shot Civil War bullet too. My wife found her first old coin - a Buffalo, along with a ring and a brooch or hat pin. Also, as you can see in the first part of the video, she found something VERY interesting in her first hole!

I am excited about the upcoming Equinox release, but I have no intention to shelve the CTX.

You give me hope of finding such a thing in the middle part of the country! Shelve the CTX? Not before I die! I hope the new machine is a great addition.
