Two E-TRACS = A Shared Hoard

A few weeks ago myself and my friend Alun, both E-TRAC users, met up for a few hours out. Initially we were going for a dig on Alun's field. When we arrived we were a bit disappointed to see the farmer lime spreading. Not fancying a faceful of dust we discussed a plan B, as we were already kitted up I suggested we go and have a go on one of my fields about 20 minutes away. I hadn't tried this particular field though the adjacent ones had produced a few Georgian coppers and it did have a footpath running across it.

Hunt Before The Rain

A day off and an early start was needed for the days hunt as heavy rain was forecast for later on in the day. The very first signal and find of the day was the 1817 George 3rd silver shilling which set me up for the day nicely. A couple of worn Georgian coppers later and a brief stop due to some heavy rain and I found my first ever 'mini-hoard'. A good signal on the E-TRAC resulted in a £1 coin but the signals just kept on coming and I ended up with 5 x £1 coins, 1 x £2 coin and 26p in loose change all from one hole - just a shame they were all modern coins.

30 Year Lay Off

Over 30 years ago I used to go detecting and bottle digging, but gave it up due to family and work commitments, but three years ago after radical chemotherapy and radiotherapy for throat cancer I decided that it was time I got back into detecting so started looking for a detector and chose the E-TRAC. I have found lots of great finds including a silver ring that's going through the treasure process at the moment, but the best finds are the many friends I have made through clubs and rallies.

A Change is Good as a Rest

Last winter was pretty well a wash out and most of my spare time was left catching up on all the magazine interviews, reviews, etc what seemed to frustrate me was that all around me in our club there was nothing but E-TRACs. I was the only one with the Fisher F75; was I missing something?

Back to Life With E-TRAC...

I took the E-TRAC out for a walk Sunday to a farm I have been detecting over 12 years and before me, it was a club site for 15 years, this field I was on was the 2nd worst field to detect on so I stopped going to it 5 years ago.

Minelab Kicks XP's Butt!

When I first got my E-TRAC, I had little hope, considering all the other detectors I had seen used. I purchased the E-TRAC near this last Christmas and was very anxious to see how it would perform in the spring.

Iron... The E-TRAC Laughs at Iron!

This has been one of the best weeks of detecting I have ever had. I went back to an old site that once had a Church on it. This site is so loaded with iron it is almost impossible to hunt in anything but Two Tone Ferrous.

1829 Capped Bust Dime

A friend of mine invited me to hunt with him where he had found a large cent. We were there for about an hour and his wife called and said she was ready to eat. As she informed him of this, I pulled this beauty from the soil. I appreciate the invite Doug.

Silver Class Ring Reunited with Owner 50 Years Later!

I was searching a local football field at a school that I have been hunting for the last year and I dug a signal 5-6" deep. Out the dirt came a very nice silver ring. The ring had 3 initials inscribed in it. It turned out to be an 8th grade class ring dated 1958. The school was no longer around and I couldn't find any information on who the ring could have belonged to.

2 Piece Wedding Band Set Recovered and Returned

I was out of town for the day and received a text from a friend of mine whom happens to be a lifeguard. He said that a couple came into lifeguard headquarters and the husband stated that his wife just lost her two wedding rings on the beach. It was down pouring at the time so I figured that if the weather backed off I would give it a shot tomorrow morning before I went into work.
