White's DFX & Excelerator Coil Finds Coins, Rings & Jewelry

I want to give a round of thanks to JW, and Stuart at Kellyco Metal Detectors. I got my new 14" Excelarator search coil just before Thanksgiving for a trip I had planned, only to find my new coil was defective! I made a call and said help!!!!! My new coil arrived on Thanksgiving Eve. I took my new coil and my trusted White's DFX on my trip and thought I had died and gone to heaven!

I found over two hundred and fifty clad coins, three watches, boy scout clips, a match box car, a Kennedy and Susan B, keys, tokens, silver chains, two foreign coins and six silver rings. I was so tired that Thanksgiving night I couldn't cut my turkey so I just ate pie!

This coil penetrated the minerals in the ground and obliterated them. I found my first ring at a depth of nine inches and my DFX sang like a bird, beep, beep, beep! The coil could be run hot, it had no problem with the gain on 4 and the AC turned up to 75. That is really hard to do in California. It separates targets and sees through trash. It finds targets on the service and at depth and everything in between. What a dream!

It is so nice to find that a big company can treat their customers just like family. Thanks for everything!
