How good is an ECG combined with a 24h Holter in detecting a previous heart attack, both overt and silent?

In brief: ECG

ECG would likely show an evidence of previous heart attack and Holter monitor would only show arrhythmias.
If you want to be sure about heart disease you should either get a stress test or cardiac catheterization. But considering your age the probability is low.
