I returned today to the old church yard that is about to be paved over to make a parking lot for a new business. We had a few brief showers early this morning, but I headed out as soon as the rain stopped.
I dug four silver coins from the yard last year, as well as a sterling ankle bracelet. Yesterday I dug three small balls (hollow spheres) that had become separated from the bracelet that I found last year, as well as a silver Rosie. So I was hoping that my new E-Trac would help me find some more.
I was NOT disappointed. This machine is a silver-sniffing beast. It smelled out two more Rosies, one a 1950-D and the other a 1959-D.
Both were around six inches deep. The first was on edge. The second was about six inches from a rather large and noisy piece of ground trash. It wouldn’t pinpoint because of the trash. But I kept getting a hit with a high tone, so I dug under the high tone and there it was! My MXT couldn’t lock on to that signal, but the E-Trac separated it out just fine. I’m way impressed.
So … two more silvers rescued from the asphalt that is soon to come. I’m going to try to finish hitting the spot early next week. I’m still hoping for a couple more strays.
Thanks for looking! HH!!
