I love my old Eagle Spectrum! I have unearthed many great finds over the years with this machine. In monetary value of the finds, it has paid for itself several times over, and keeps on paying! This year, I heeded advice from a successful ring hunter, and started hunting rings myself. After six non-precious ring finds(in the last 2 months), and a whole lot of coins along the way, I finally found my first ever gold ring! A huge 14K white gold band! At about 4 inches in the dirt, it read very solid, in the zinc penny range; as, I’m told, many gold rings do. So, once again: THANK YOU WHITE’S! Any lesser machine would have broken or bored me by now. Not this old bird. Can’t wait to see what we find next!
