Dear White's Electronics,

I just purchased my new VX3 a couple of weeks ago, and all can say is WOW! I’ve taken her out on quite a few outings this week and this machine is unbelievable. I’m not one to write to a company and blow their horn for them but, this is so unbelievable I had to. Just today I was out in an old private park field that I had permission to hunt. I had just started the deep silver program when one of the old time residents came across me and had asked me if I had found anything yet. He was kinda’ snickering when he asked me that and told me guys had been out there for years and had cleaned the place out. “Ain’t another piece of silver or any other coins out there” he told me. He continued chatting with me about a colonial house that was supposed to have been on site during his childhood during the 1930’s.

I hunted for about 15 minutes with not much success when I picked up a couple of silver Roosevelt dimes all at about 4-6 inches deep a Washington silver quarter, I’m on a roll now! Then I got a quarter signal at 8” hoping for the first seated of the year. I was expecting to see the shine of silver but didn’t rechecking my hole I found a KING GEORGE COPPER!

I kept on searching for a while when I had a huge hit at about 8 inches. After digging down past 8 inches I was discouraged but the machine was telling me there was defiantly something in the hole. At 12” I saw the sweet glint of silver, dug around it and pulled the beautiful silver brooch out! All I can say is hands Whites makes the best detectors for all applications!
