Howdy Folks!

Sometimes I get asked whether a Spectra V3 is worth the investment or not. Well, my opinion depends on whether I get results. And as you can see, I am getting the most excellent results with my Spectra V3 from White's Electronics.

Here you will see some of the things I found in just one week, from August 22 through August 28th. There's that nice little 14k gold bracelet, several gold rings, a silver earring, a "tennis bracelet" and more. I also found a whole mess of clad, including a 1956d wheat penny. One of the rings I found was 7 inches deep!

Ask me again whether the Spectra V3 was worth the money I paid for the machine and the only answer I can give you is what it has turned up for me already. It finds gold like a bandit, silver with deadly accuracy, coins by the pound, and the results are nothing short of stunning!

My trusty old MXT helped pay for the Spectra V3 with all the gold I found with it. But the Spectra just shines on every outing. It just can't be out-gunned for finding gold and silver. Do I love this machine? You betcha!

And so long as I have it in my hands, I will continue to keep my reputation in tact as the Colorado Gold Slinger! Thank you White's Electronics for an incredible machine!

Blessings, M-Taliesin
