The Whites' Spectra V3 is a SILVER Magnet!!!

I have found my best and deepest SILVER in 1 week with the White’s Spectra V3, than I have in a few years of detecting.

I have found a walking Liberty half 1917! 10 inches deep, I almost left this beauty in the ground because I remember digging a deep can previously, which I later learned how to read. The long Green 2.5 KHz on search and pinpoint made me dig it! Below is a list of items I have found.

1958 Franklyn Half

1935, 1954 and 1957 Quarters

1916 Mercury dime (9 inches! I came close to leaving this fine coin.)

1941 and 1944 Mercury dimes

1946 and 1951 Rosie dimes

1943 2 shillings silver British coin, (I never saw one of these, FANTASTIC-VERY DEEP)

A silver jewelry cross with gems

A silver ring (I was tired and was going to leave, again strong Green color 2.5 KHz Frequency in Pinpoint and active ANALYZE screen made me want to dig, and dig I did)

I look forward to swinging the Spectra V3 again and again.
