October 1st, 2013

White's Electronics

I was about to give up metal detecting because it was getting hot and I was in a hunted out park. I had the 4x6 coil on and figured I would check along the side walk before I left. I could not believe what was there! My first half dollar! It was about 3 inches in the ground on its side. I got an 87 VID and lots of noise...a strike!! I just pried it out and wows!

When my V3i speaks....I listen.
