White's Electronics,

I have been metal detecting Pennsylvania for 21 years now and can comfortably say that White’s metal detectors will be the detector of choice for me for as long as I am in this hobby. My small group of three people all have White’s machines and we specialize in East Coast colonial coins and relics.

We like to search for and hone in on the difficult to find vanished home sites. Back on Oct 16, 2011 we secured permission from a farmer to do his fields. It was believed that this particular area would show promise and provide for us. We were not disappointed.

We came away with 13 colonial and post colonial coins. I personally found 2 beautiful King George III coppers, a badly worn William III copper and 3 other badly worn KG III’s. Usually the coppers are corroded or worn so finding 2 in such great shape is a rush indeed. I am so impressed with the ease of use plus all the great information provided by the V3i that I am forever a spoiled White’s fan.

Thank You

Chris
