Excelerator Finds Coins & Relics
I've been working around the house trying to catch up on some honey-do's the past few weeks. I couldn't take it anymore. So I loaded up my Explorer2 with the new EQ2 Excelerator 16.5 coil and headed to a farm field were the old town Poor House used to be. It is located on a steep hill, and Family's have been using it for slay riding for over a hundred years. I figured it would be a great place to check for some old coins. Well it turn out that I was right. My first find was a liberty Head Nickel about eight inches deep. Not a bad start for the day. I detected for about four hours total. Finds were: two liberty Head nickels, three large cents, two buckles, two mercury's, two...

White's MXT Finds 10K Gold Ring w/ 10 Diamonds
Hi JW. Today my wife and I went metal detecting. We went to a park that has produced some nice finds in the past and today it would produce again. My wife dug this very nice women's 10K gold ring that has 10 diamonds. Needless to say, she was thrilled with her find. She was using her White's MXT with her favorite search coil, the Excelerator 4.5x7 DD....

Whites MXT Brings Luck To Dennis
Hi JW, I thought you might like to see a photo of a 14K gold ring with 8 diamonds that I recovered this 4th of July. I was able to get out of the house early today to do some metal detecting before it got to hot. I went to a park that had a couple of ball diamonds. I was swinging my White's MXT in left field when I got a solid 14 VDI reading on the display.I dug the target and imagine my surprise when this beautiful gold ring with 8 diamonds popped out of the hole. This is my second gold ring with diamonds in two days. I guess I am pretty lucky. I continued my hunt for another hour or so and found a little clad and a silver football medallion. On the back it is ingraved Bro...

The 6" Excelerator Coil is Hot!
When I first got the 6" Excelerator coil, I tried it in my backyard and wasn't too impressed, but this wasn't a fair way to try out a new coil. So, I took it to eight different pounded out sites within 20 minutes of my house. I could not believe that all of this was left behind by me and everyone else using all different brand names of metal detectors. The 6" Excelerator coil is hot, hot, hot! Every site that I go to now with this coil I know that I will find something - coins or some objects - left behind by some others. It seems to draw my attention on the MXT VID numbers and causes me to dig numbers that I used to pass over before with my other coils because of the s...

White's DFX and 6" DD Excelerator Coil Do the Trick
All I can say is "Thanks JW for recommending the 6" EXCELERATOR DD coil". You have made my day. For about a year I have had a coin garden. It was very difficult to find a place in my yard where I could line up different coins because of all the metal in the ground. Finally I got the coins lined up about 2' apart with trash metal in between. When I put the 6" excelereator on my DFX and was doing some testing I got this signal right next to a piece of metal ...

Fisher Metal Detector Finds 1897 Dime
I have had my new CoinStrike for about 3 weeks now, and I continue to learn more about it each time I take it out. It is a bit different to operate than any detector I have used in my 35 years of detecting. That said, I do like a challenge! For the past few years, my brother and I have spent most of our coin hunting time at old home sites and old fair grounds in a four County area. With high gas prices, limited time, and extreme hot temperature, I decided "why not learn my new Coin Strike close to home"? The city park where I live is only about 3 blocks from my house. Spending most of my recent detecting time in open spaces, detecting in a park setting with modern trash wou...

Whites & Excelerator Finds Silver Crucifix & Coins
Hi JW. I got the 8" DD Excelerator search coil on Friday, but because the temp was soaring around 105 degrees I was unable to get to use the coil until Saturday, then only for an hour, because of the heat. I was able to get a jump on the heat Sunday and get in 2 good hours before the heat and mosquitoes run me out of the park. West Nile virus is a serious problem in this area and you have to wear a lot of skitter repellent to protect yourself. Well I am impressed with this 8" DD Excelerator coil. I was hunting in a "hunted out" park that has its fair share of trash. I found that even though this coil is bigger than I normally use is high trash areas, I was still able to get...

Garrett GTI 2500 Metal Detector Unearths Georgia Gold
I just wanted to tell you that I have found my first gold nugget after having my GTI 2500 for six weeks. I found it at an old gold mine here in Georgia. It is 7.2 grams or 4.6 Dwt and it is a beauty! Recently, I bought a GTI 2500 used and sent it to Garrett to install the new mineralization chip in it. I was happy with it when I got it back. It would punch through this extremely high mineralization ground here in Georgia and I could run it with much higher sensitivity! To make this story short, I found this nugget in a creek near the edge of the embankment at an old gold mine....

A Really Loud Signal About Blew my Headphones Off My Head!
Hi JW, I thought I would send you some photos from a hunt I had on 08-02-06. I was hunting an old fairgrounds in my area and I was using my Whites MXT which was outfitted with my Excelerator 4.5 X 7 coil. During my hunt I began to notice that some of the coins I was digging up were pre-82 pennys, 1965 quarter, 1953 nickel and 1965 and 1966 dimes. I had been hunting pretty fast, but after seeing the dates on these coins I slowed down. I had just recovered 3 pre-82 pennies and before moving on I swung my coil over the hole and got another good signal. I dug down further into the hole, to about 4 inches, and recovered three wheaties. Again I swung my coil over the hol...

Excalibur Finds 14kt White Gold Ring w/ Nice Stones
After spending Sunday morning with other Gold Coast Treasure Club members at our annual silver hunt and picnic, I had 42 silver dimes in my pocket, but I wasn't done yet. I hit a few local beaches and didn't give up until I landed this nice 14kt white gold ticket with my Excalibur Here's another view with better lighting. I took it to a jeweler to ID the stones. The top stone is tanzanite. The bottom stone is a black opal (I don't "get" how it is a BLACK opal, but that's what it is called. Check out that FIRE!) To the right are three tiny diamonds. And the best part: it fits me! Here is another, similar shot: I'm loving my Excalibur! This year is off to a goo...
