Item Found: Coin

Location: Wisconsin

Metal Detector Used: Spectra Series (NONE)


August 1st, 2013

White's Electronics,

All I can say is "Wow". I have been detecting for over twenty years with "Green machines”, I have found lots of old silver coins and relics. I just felt I was missing something? After years of a friend telling me to get a White's detector, I purchased a new VX3 last week!

The first trip out was only a couple of hours and searching between snow drifts, I found a pocket full of clad! I noticed I wasn't digging many pull tabs (nice). My second trip out with the ground still covered with snow, I found these two treasures! A 1912 Barber and a trade token from the late 1900's. I had many other signals that were deep in the frozen ground.

What amazed me was that, I knew these two targets were good by the sound and the graph! I talked to my buddy later (He sold me the machine). He asked if I had converted to White's! I have to say, I have seen the light (or White's). It can only get better from now on! Even if my buddy continues to say "I told you so".

Thank you,

Michael (WI)
