White's Electronics,

Recently I have found a saloon token from Stellas Saloon in Virginia City, Nevada. It appears to be a brothel, because of the lettering “Best ---- In Town” and also “Good for all night” on the back of the coin. This was found during a thorough search of an old torn down building that is now a baseball field.

A buddy of mine and I were searching the field hoping for a great find because of past good luck here. As I was searching I noticed some signals that were just not right, kind of jumpy, but solid to a point. I turned on the V.C.O and Tone I.D. on my DFX. Next I turn the audio discrimination off to hear all metals, that is when I noticed how strong the signal had become.

I started to dig a horse shoe stencil around my target after carefully pinpointing. It was about six inches down in some clay like gray soil. At first I thought it was a copper washer, but there was no hole. I carefully rubbed the dirt off with my glove finger and I saw Nevada. I thought what could this be, it’s the size of a thin silver dollar. It read +86 +88 on the V.D. I.

I am thrilled at what a great find I have to share. Thanks to White’s Metal Detectors and Jimmy Sierra’s “Understanding the DFX” book, it definitely made this find possible.

Happy Hunting,

Jason
