Location: Mid-West

Metal Detector Used: Spectra Series (NONE)


February 9th, 2014

I started out the 2013 season using a new VX3, I submitted a story to White's about my first few months of amazing finds! I bought a new V3i in July and have to say that I was blown away by my finds! Indian head pennies, silver coins, jewelry, tokens and relics!

My good finds increased and junk finds decreased! while I found many great items, my favorite has to be a token found in Wyoming. The token dates from a saloon in Deadwood that was operated from 1878 to 1893! Wild Bill Hickok was shot in Deadwood in 1876 and this token was found at an old home site less then 100 miles from Deadwood!

Along with the token, I also found an 1877 Seated quarter and old pocket watch parts! Now as I sit at home in below zero weather and four feet of snow, I can't wait to see what great items my V3i will bring me this spring! Thank you White's for building such a great machine!
