White's Electronics

In early 2013, I purchased a White's Coinmaster GT. I have hunted in my own yard and on some of the Gulf Coast beaches to become acquainted with the detector's features. I have been very impressed and happy with the GT.

A couple of months ago, I was given permission to hunt on a local public soccer field. I have hunted there a few times, finding a few coins and numerous trash items (i.e. bottle caps and pull tabs). On a clear May afternoon, I decided to hunt there again. After hunting for a couple hours and finding a few more coins and trash items, it was time to go. I decided to make one more pass of the field on my way out to the truck. Just before I left the field, the GT was indicating a target of either a nickel or a pull tab/bottle cap.

The VDI reading was changing between 26 and 56, with a depth reading of approx. 2 to 3 inches. I hunt with the "Tone ID" selected. Based on the tones, I was confident that one of the targets was indeed a nickel, so I dug a 3 inch plug. Using my pin-pointer, I found the nickel at the bottom of the hole. Nothing else! So where was the other target?

Before I refill any hole, I always double-check the plug and hole with the pin-pointer for other items. To my surprise, the pin-pointer buzzed again indicating something else was in the plug. Based on the GT's indication/tone, I figured the pull-tab was in the plug. As I opened the plug, I saw what I thought was the "ring" of the pull-tab entangled within the root ball of the grass plug. I separated the root ball further to finally see an antique silver ring with an amethyst stone. Closer inspection of the ring revealed the "925" sterling mark on the band.

What a nice way to end an afternoon hunt.
