Metal Detector Used: Spectra Series (800-0319)


May 1st, 2009

Dear White's,

It has only been a week since I purshased my new Spectra V³, and I must say it is a very nice detector. The color screen, cordless headphones and easy navigation through the programs and settings are a great improvement.

I have found over 300 coins and some other very interesting things. The most interesting is the Hopalong Cassidy badge mini silver fork and the necklace pendant. I have found 35 wheat penny's, 3 indian head pennys, 1 mercury dime, 1 barber dime, 2 silver dimes, 1 silver quarter, 1 barber quarter, 1 V nickle.

On one of the days out hunting at a old house I dug two seperate wheat penny's at 6 to 7 inches that were masked by nails and steel wire. Them 2 digs really increased my confidence in my new Spectra V³. That was the first time I have dug coins with so much junk around them.

The Spectra V³ is my 3rd Whites detector, my first was a Coinmaster 5000D that I bought in the early 80's. I have never had a single problem with it and it works like the day I got it. My second Whites detector is a DFX, another great detector.

I would like to say Thank You Whites for building qulaity performing detectors. Keep up the good work.

Ron M.
