I purchased my Coinmaster GT last spring after wanting to get into metal detecting for sometime. I spent the summer and fall hunting everywhere, finding mostly newer coins and some jewelry. When I put my detector away for the winter I was a little discouraged not finding any old coins. But with the thaw of winter I was ready to get back out. This year so far I have found 3 mercury dimes and an 1883 Indian penny. Then back on May 23rd that all changed. I found an 1805 Large Cent! It was about 5 inches down and when I pulled it up I couldn't believe it! This machine rocks! I will be sending out the coin soon to be graded and feel that it will grade high. I can't seem to get out enough now! Thank you White's.
