Hello White’s,

I went out on one of my daily hunts to a field I have been doing off and on for the last year or so here in central N.J. After a half hour or so of not finding any thing that great, I got a good response from my Spectra V3.

I was using the coin/jewelry program. I had a VDI of 88 and 91. I flipped the toggle to the analyze and got a nice 2.5 kHz frequency response (green Hump). The target read a depth of three inches. So I decided to dig the target after pinpointing. At around four inches I dug up this civil war belt buckle. I was told it's an eagle type sword buckle.

I was shocked to see it come out of the ground here in central NJ. This is one of my best finds. The Spectra V3 gives up yet another great find.

Thank you White’s!!!!!

Greg in Mercerville
