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.

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.

V3i Finds Family Heirloom Wedding Band

Many thanks to White's for helping me find a family heirloom wedding band this past week.

My family owns property near Asheville, NC that has been in my family since before the Civil War. The property has been leased to a zip line company, which is open throughout the summer and fall months. This past fall, a woman who had come up from Atlanta lost her wedding band somewhere along the course. I was talking to the staff a few weeks ago, and they mentioned that a wedding band had been lost and that the woman was heartbroken. I told them I had a White's medal detector and to get me the person's name and ph...

1st Time Out with My V3i is a Success

I am excited to tell you about my first outing with my new V3i metal detector. Being we had a streak of unusually warm weather this winter I decided to go over to the local ballpark. I was anxious to see how the V3i handled but was not expecting to make any significant finds being myself and others had hunted the area many times before.
