Item Found: Coin

Location: New York

Metal Detector Used: Spectra Series (800-0319)

White's,

I have now found my first Barber quarter, my oldest coin, and a 1900 that was over 7" deep. I have also found my first silver rings, the small ring was a solid hit, the ID was only 60. However, the large green bar 2.5 kHz signature made me want to dig it instead of leave it. I don't dig everything, I'm becoming more selective.

I've also found a large heavy silver ring with stones in it and a class ring. My first money clip that was heavy silver and my favorite lovely pendent with chips, are a few more firsts. These finds are all silver and all had strong 2.5 kHz green bars and solid audio signatures. I use the White's 5.3 concentric coil which I am most comfortable with.

I have been metal detecting for 3 years and have borrowed other brands, however, I like the feel and balance of White's detectors. I dig too much junk with other brands. This summer I'm playing on getting the 6X10 coil and I should be ready for the deeper silver.
