    "Made In Ireland"

    How can you tell if it's one made in Ireland? Mine was touted to be one of them by the seller, but how can I really tell?

    If it's really made in Ireland it will be white with an invisible leprechaun stamped on the bottom. Good find!!!

    Maybe by serial #? Perhaps ML could confirm.

    The box mine came in said it was made in Ireland, I don't remember if there anything on the detector stating that. Ireland made wasn't a big deal until all manufacturing moved to Malaysia and then some people were willing to pay a little bit a premium for a western made unit.

    I got an original box with it, which says it was made in Ireland but I can't match any ser# matches from the box to the Etrac control box. I'd hoped that there would be a ser# match. Thanks.

    the ser# in the battery compartment should match. Sorry, it's been so long since I had my E-Trac I can't if the box had a ser# or the info packet, or where it was.

    I sent the serial # to Minelab service in Australia and ask if they could tell me where it was made. They sent me an email back saying mine was made in Ireland. Sent the same email to Minelab USA and they couldn't tell me.

    The serial number on the back of the ETrac screen housing should match the serial number on the original box, on the end below the bar code, if they do not match then it is not the original box.

    There is no way to tell the date or location of the detector by the serial number alone. Minelab moved factory production to Plexus Corp in Malaysia in December of 2009, detectors after that were made in Malaysia.
