Default E-Trac Finds Silver!

I have about 20 hours on my new E-Trac and have found over 250 coins so far but only 1 silver dime. So I uploaded the Andy Sabisch pattern last night and this morning I went back to the same park and my third coin was a silver dime. Thank you Andy! I feel much better about spending the $1,500 for the machine. My E-Trac is not a silver magnet yet but I am working on it.

Please let me know where I can download Andy's ETRAC settings program for finding silver coins.

Thanks.

Congratulations on your silver find. I've been using my e-trac since the last week of February and was finding lots of wheat pennies the first month. Once I started using Andy's coin pattern I've been finding lots of silver, 9 this month. It seems like when you have a 12-46 it turns out to be a silver quarter unless it alternates between 11-45, 12-46, then it seems to be a silver dime. I think you will really start finding more silver with Andy's coin program. Good luck.
