What Will You Find?

My 1st Year is a Big Success

My first year using the V3i was a big success! I started with the standard Coin and Jewelry program and was rather quickly able to create my very own custom program which is working extremely well. It varies somewhat between sites however the on the fly tuning with the live control bar makes fine tuning easy in order to zero in on long hidden and deeper targets.

By carefully reworking my favorite old hotspots I was pleasantly surprised to find many good targets still waiting to be found. The more I used the V3i the better I became at finding those elusive targets. I frequently returned home with old wheat cents and silver dimes for my days reward.

I am really excited to report that occasionally I recovered a silver half dollar and my ultimate best find so far was an 1889-O Morgan silver dollar which I must have passed over dozens of times prior using my older detectors.
