White's,

I saw you have no civil war finds from a Spectra V3 on your site. Attached are pictures of several bullets, a rivet and a small flat cuff button found in what was has been considered a hunted out confederate camp site here in Gettysburg. I have taken my new Spectra V3 to this field 3 times and have not left without having recovered a few relics. This location has been hunted over for 20+ years by many different people with many different machines. I am quite pleased with my V3 and look forward to using it to unearth many more Gettysburg relics that others have missed.
