White's Electronics,

I started using the V3 with the White's Eclipse 6x10 coil at a well hunted out site by 4 other experienced hunters using another brand, famed for finding deep silver coins. They stopped coming complaining of no more finds.

Here is what I was able to find:

Silver 1957 Quarter mixed with bottle cap. The V3 and 6x10 coil was able to see both items. A 1937 Merc. dime 5" deep, again near other trash targets. I started running the V3 HOT to find the deepest targets. I hit this beauty, my first and oldest, 1914 barber dime at 7".

It started getting late, and I was finishing up when I got a good hit. I had to dig 3 times for this my oldest and best silver coin, an 1898 Barber Half, WOW.

The excitement of today's finds had me now digging in the dark. I found a nice silver ring again mixed with a lot of trash. I did not want to dig anymore when I got this strong hit on this large superman silver ring. Wow, what a day with the V3! I don't think it can get any better than this.
