Let the Picture do the Talking!

I cant say enough about my Whites Coin Master GT, so I'll let the picture do the talking, but I will say a little myself, this is the best all around detector I have ever used by Whites. It does exactly what I need it to do. I hunt the beach every week, I hunt old homes, parks, and everywhere you can think.

1944 Silver Mercury Dime. WOW!!!

I recently took a friend, who has been asking about metal detecting, hunting a couple of days after we had snow. He knew nothing about metal detectors except they find metal in the ground. So, I took him and my White’s V3i out to a large high school football stadium parking lot for a little training. I knew this would be a good place to find an assortment of targets with varied conductivity. After taking him through a tour of the menus and programs, I showed him how to move the coil across the ground with a good sweep speed. I showed him the VDI and Target ID by placing a few planted coins in the ground so that he could see how they ...

A Voice From the Dust

Earlier this month I had the opportunity to help make someone’s Easter. My hunting partner Brandon “Dr. Tones” Niece called to say an acquaintance, Molly, had just phoned him in a panic. “We kind of have an emergency man”, he said. Molly’s sister had lost a piece of jewelry outside during their Easter gathering. Everyone else was still busy with family dinners but Brandon knew I was spending Easter alone. “Is there any chance you could run out tonight and take a look?”, he asked. Besides being the right thing to do; my choice was made easier since it would give me an excuse to quit wor...

Gold! Gold! Gold!

This year is off to a great start with 3 gold rings. My wife loves it, and I get the exercise. The first is a Black hills gold 10k ladies ring, the second is a 10k gold with an opal, and the last is a 10k gold class ring, which is a first for me. Trying to find the owner now. Woo Hoo! The V3i is awesome guys and gals. Try it!

Roman Coins

My friend from USA visited me recently and we hunted coins for the weekend.He has a Spectra V3i and I was using my DFX 300.He suggested testing his metal detector in our fields,and I did. I was thrilled after only few hours of use, I dug about 25 Roman bronze coins,one medieval silver coin,one Celtic bronze button,one Gepid VI century golden plated belt part and small Roman silver duck (part of Roman broach). The Spectra V3i is like vacuum cleaner for Roman coins. After that hunt I decided to buy Spectra V3i. It is THE best detector that I ever used,and I have hunted coins for more then 20 years.

Civil War Canteen - US 1858, Shot Through

I found this canteen in shallow water after the Spring rains. Found on private property near a famous Tennessee battlefield. I have been hunting since 1979. Although this item was near the battlefield, I have every reason to suspect that it was thrown into the river and used for target practice. I decided to leave the concretion on the surface, though it would clean down to a silver color.

New E-TRAC Opened Up My World... We are in Love

I recently purchased a E-TRAC. Prior I had a safari and a X-TERRA 705. I ended up hunting a local park that I have hunted many times... but wow... THIS MACHINE KILLS IT. In one week of use (learning curve not bad coming from the safari) I have found.

First Detection

Hi everybody,

I bought a X-TERRA 705 this winter and waited till last week to use it because in Quebec, winter has been cold and snowy. I had never used a metal detector before, except 30 years ago, with my uncle, when we dug a 1 meter deep hole in my grand-parents back-yard to find a big iron sheet.
