The old Explorer still amazes me.

Dug this nice 1914 Barber quarter in a pounded area. The only reason this quarter was still in the ground was because of a 3" x 3" chunk of iron in the bottom of the hole. When digging the quarter was in the side of the hole about 3" above the iron. The trusty old Explorer sniffed it out though.

You know what’s even MORE “amazing”? That MOST people never HAVE and never WILL buy an Explorer of any kind and learn it to even 50-75% of the machine/operator potential. SO many people out there just don’t have the patience to realize that IF they put in the time and build skill with it as they go, it STILL does everything it did when it came out. Nothing about that has changed, they continue to amaze those lucky enough to know them.

Wow! I've found some coins with junk in the hole, but a 3" x 3" chunk of iron? Great find.
