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 th...

1783 Spanish Reale Found with White's DXF 300 Metal Detector
My name is Russ Cowles. A couple of weeks ago I broke three ribs, and just couldn't get out to detect. Needless to say, I was pretty bummed. However, I started back up again yesterday (May 7th.) And today (may 8th), I went to a old one room schoolhouse in a nearby town. My son and I pulled out five Wheats, a Silver Medal, a Pocket Watch and some Clad. I also found yet another Pocket Watch in pretty good shape. I have to say, I found some more clad, and a gold plated ring. I then I got a strange signal in the silver range but a broken signal. So, I began digging and about five inches down, out popped this beautiful 1783 Spanish Reale. I thought I was going to pass out I was so ...

White's DFX Finds 100+ Year Old Cameo Brooch
Not too sure if you will remember me, since I know you deal with many people in a month's time. My name is Jason T. from Maine and you sold me my new White's DFX. It is 99 degrees here so I thought I'd stay inside and do some pictures and scans of my best finds from my first month in my yard with my new DFX. I just started metal detecting this year around April. I got "the BUG" right away since I was finding a lot of neat items. After about six weeks, I upgraded to the DFX (the metal detector I really wanted in the first place.) I got the new metal detector one month ago yesterday....

1777 USA Continental Army General Service Enlisted Soldier's Button
I purchased my DFX from Barbara at Kellyco last month and have been having a great time. The site I'm hunting on is an old stone foundation on a relative's farm in CT. We knew the site had 18th century pottery, nails, pipes and other odds and ends. I was shocked when the first week with my DFX I was getting a 17+ VDI in the stone foundation. I moved a few rocks from the wall and there sitting nicely protected from the elements was this 1777 USA Continental Army General Service enlisted soldier's button. I took it to a military button expert to have it authenticated that following week and was graded as "excellent" condition. From my understanding the only other USA 1777 but...

Whites and Super 12 Searchcoil Finds Treasure Others Leave Behind
Although I've been detecting a long time and owned lots of metal detectors, I had never owned a DFX. When it arrived last week from JW at Kellyco, I read the manual, watched the DVD and re-read the manual. I have been using the Super 12 coil quite a bit on my MXT and decided that was the coil for the DFX's "maiden voyage". I took the detector out to my coin garden and familiarized myself with the settings and the sounds. I immediately noticed how the audio tone of the DFX reminded me of my XL Pro. Wide and distinct! Running out of sunlight, I decided to take the DFX/Super 12 combo to the neighbor lady's yard for a quick hunt. Now I have hunted this same back yard with about...

Gold Ring Found with White's DFX Metal Detector
Everybody has someone that they detect with, and my friend is Bill Green, who lives close by me. Bill and I detect at least twice a week. Recently, a new member of our detecting club, Rob Hill, has become a regular with us. Rob is in business for himself, therefore he doesn't have much time to pursue his new hobby so he has arranged to have Wednesdays to play with Bill and me. Bill and Rob both are using the new White's -top of the line detector - the V-3. I am using my buddy - White's DFX with a new 5-3 Eclipse coil. As both, Bill and Rob, keep using their new machines they are getting better and better. Recently, they both have had a run of finding jewelry...
