Item Found: Relic

Location: New York

Metal Detector Used: Spectra Series (800-0319)


October 1st, 2009

White’s,

It was only about 2 months since I've had my Spectra V3 and cannot believe the results already...as soon as I got home I tried it in a spot at my house that I have gone over time and time again and next thing I know a solid 77-79 hit at 7-8 inches down. I dug and there it was a 1923 mercury dime in great shape.

From shoe buckles to belt buckles to half dollars and more, but to date my greatest find is the 1796 large cent. I detected a property that I have hit a few times before with my DFX and along came a solid signal. It read about the same as dime but bounced around a little bit more and said about 10 inches.

I dug down and turned over the plug and nothing in the pile. I put the probe in the hole and the probe began to sing a great song. White's, you've made a repeat customer and I will be back if anything new comes along, also many thanks to “Bob Lavoy of Northeast Metal Detectors” for selling me this great machine.
