V3i is a Confidence Booster for Me

I recently purchased my new White’s V3i and since then I have found 6 rings 3 gold and 3 silver and tons of clad coinage! I am still on the search for my first silver coin but with a detector like this I am very confident! This button was my first find with this amazing detector and told me one thing.... that there is no limit to what this machine can find!! It was 6 inches down found in my front yard where I have hunted many, many times before with other detectors.

Last Year's V3i Best Finds

Most of the items pictured have been found in private yards. The first 5 minutes of hunting after the winter broke last year out popped 2 barber dimes. I thought the yard was fairly void of good targets. The large cent was found in a farm field that I had eyed for several years and was finally able to get back and hunt again. Right off the bat a great hit and there was my first large cent, the only target I found that day.

V3i Kills it on Route 66!

I was on my way home today and I live close to Route 66 and there is a gas station that just keeps on pulling me toward it. So today I decided to stop and look around a little with my V3i.

You would think they would find it at the US Mint. But it took a White's V3i to find it!

What Great Customer Support and Awesome Detectors

I first want to say thank you for the second to none customer support and such great metal detectors. I have four now as of January1st found over 100 civil war bullets, 8 buttons, a officers sword belt clasp, a lock from the civil war, and the list goes on and on. I started the season on New Year’s Day hunting a place that use to be a camp site or unloading site for the railroad to get supplies to the union soldiers in Mosheim, TN. for the battle of Blue Springs.

Thanks for an Amazing Machine, the V3i

I'm still in shock. After 20+ years of detecting I've made some pretty nice finds, but this one ranks right at the top of my list!

V3i Lives Up to its Expectations

I am so glad to submit another happy story made possible by using White’s metal detectors. I just got my new White’s V3i a few weeks ago and I’m glad to report it lives up to everything I’ve heard about it. I am just using the pre set programs and learning the machine and I had an opportunity to hunt for a class ring lost over 24 years ago for a friend.

The V3i is Completely Versatile!

Just an update showing the impressive results of the V3i. Having two complete seasons of use I must admit this machine is awesome. With the help of the White’s Forum members I have been able to take advantage of the full power of this machine. To date I have recovered: King William Half Penny (circa 1600), King George Penny (Circa 1600), Standing Liberty Half Dollar, Standing Liberty Type I Quarter 1917, 1860 Thick Indian Head Penny, 1816 Large Cent, a variety of silver rings, etc. I have enclosed a few photographs.

After 11 Years I Finally Found a Silver Ring!

I have been metal detecting going on 11 years now and have been using my V3i for about 3 years. It wasn't until recently that I found my first silver ring. It might not sound like much of a find but it meant a lot to me seeing as how I have always wanted to find one but the find had always eluded me.

Having Fun Finding the Goods!

All I can say is thank you for the repairs on my White’s V3i! I was very impressed in the speedy return and so happy to have it back in time to use this past Saturday. I was not expecting it for another week so getting it on Friday was totally fantastic.
