Item Found: Coin

Location: California

Metal Detector Used: Spectra Series (800-0308-1)

White's Electronics,

I thought I'd drop you a line to let you know how much fun I've had with my new V3i. I purchased the V3i as my first detector. I found it to be easy to use for someone new to the hobby.

Within the first year I have found well over $1000 in coins. Gold rings and chains, silver rings and silver chains as well as bracelets are all found on a regular basis. Foreign coins from Australia, Ukraine, China, Japan, Taiwan, Thailand and many other places add to the mix. I have a pile of tokens, new and old, from a broad spectrum of businesses.

Other interesting items include many hot wheels cars, lighters, tools, watches and a huge pile of costume jewelry.

The flexibility of the detector and it programs means the V3i is always up to the task. It continues to produce results from the over hunted local parks to the beaches on the California coast. I included a photo of some of the coins and jewelry found during my first year with the V3i.

Thanks again White’s,

Bill in Antelope
