Item Found: Gold

Location: New York

Metal Detector Used: Spectra Series (800-0319)


February 1st, 2010

Hi White's,

The Spectra V3 saved the day for a wedding couple in upstate New York. The groom had lost his ring. He rented a metal detector & had no success. He called my shop and told me he had to have the ring next week or he was in big trouble. He also mentioned the area was loaded with junk metal.

I went to the site with the Spectra V3 and the Eclipse 5.3 coil which is great for separating the junk from the good stuff. In the pouring rain I recovered the ring in the 2nd hole I dug all in only 15 minutes.
