    Silver Coin spill...2 wheats...and a token make for a great hour hunt!

    I guess I spoke too soon this weekend when I mentioned not finding any silver yet. I had an hour to kill today so I hit an old parking area in the woods where people once had picnics. I figured if there was ever a site to get lucky with first time silver, this would be it. If this site was never detected it should yield some great results...... and sure enough I hit SILVER and a pocket spill at that in the first 5 minutes!! I was convinced at first that they would be much older, but it's all good.



    All three were 1964 Washington’s & a 1965 within a few inches of each other buried 2-3 inches deep. The quarters must've been fairly new when lost because they are in absolutely great shape. It was awesome seeing the E-trac screen showing silver for the first time.

    A few feet over a 1933 and 1940 wheat and some clad as well as a NYC Transit Token that says "good for one fare"

    Great day out, first time silver, finally!!

    Great to see a fellow Jerseyite score the silver. Leave some for me, though.

    How long have you been detecting? Congrats on your first silver. I'm kinda new to MDing too, I have found a couple of mercs, one Rosevelt dime and a war nickel; no quarters yet though. All within the first couple of weeks. I have only been Mding for about 6 weeks and can't get enough of it, been out 4 to 5 hours a day. How do you like your E-trac I want to get one in the spring, just wondering how your liking it so far?

    I like that token. I love digging Tokens. Tokens, old silver, and wheats are my favorite.

    Honestly about 2 1/2 months more or less. I have a Bounty Hunter Platinum that I used for the first 2 months. I was hooked after the first few days and decided to get a better machine. Not that the BH didn't do its job, I found tons of clad and a 18k gold ring using it, but many of the areas and parks that I hunt are iron infested. The BH did a great job discriminating in the first couple inches which did take some work in itself, but after that it was just noise. Also most parks and public areas where I live have been pounded to death the last 30 years so finding silver is no easy task. That is of course unless you're on private land. So after watching countless vids and lots of reading I wanted an E-trac badly. I love the sounds it makes and the discrimination is awesome!! Keep in mind the weight, not that it's a big deal, but after swinging my old machine hours on end, I didn't realize how light it was until I bought the minelab. You should definitely pick one up. Just make sure you watch plenty of youtube vids so you get a real good idea what the sounds are like. I haven't heard any negative comments on the minelab sounds but I've read a lot about people not liking certain sounds some md's can make.

    Whatever machine you decide to go with, good luck!!
