In my area of town in central Pennsylvania a new bridge was under construction crossing the Susquehanna River. I would go to the construction site from time to time to check out the progress. One day taking a walk around the site I saw where that a lot of topsoil had been removed. I noticed shards of colonial pottery lying about and I knew what I was looking at because I am a colonial hunter.

My 1st Year is a Big Success

My first year using the V3i was a big success! I started with the standard Coin and Jewelry program and was rather quickly able to create my very own custom program which is working extremely well. It varies somewhat between sites however the on the fly tuning with the live control bar makes fine tuning easy in order to zero in on long hidden and deeper targets.

Hitting the Hills with My GMT and 4x6 Coil

I went down to Sonora, CA. for 2 day trip to meet up with my friend to go out mining. We got out to the tailing piles and I turned on my GMT with my new 4x6 coil put my gain on 8, VSAT on 2 and threshold on a slight crackle. Within the first minute I got a nice zip zip, my first piece of gold then another one. My friend turned on his detector put it to the ground and it went off there was a piece right in front of him what luck.

White's Will Have a New Client Soon

A few years ago, I was just walking around with my White's M6, in a meadow with adjacent houses, of course looking for new interesting finds. In one of the yards, I saw a young little boy, aged about 5 years old, staring at me for quite some time yet.

Experience Pays Off

I was out looking for places to detect this past winter when I came upon a very old house in my town that was burnt down and demolished to make way for a new shopping center. I ask permission and was only granted one day to hunt it. I used my trusty V3i and set up a program that was sure to get me the best items in the quickest time.

I Found My First Trade Token with My MXT

I just got my new White’ MXT and it is easy to use and a great metal detector! I went to a local spot where I have detected before the spot has a lot of history dating back to the Indians. I have found some old wheat pennies dating back to the 1920s or so and some other cool old items as well. I plan on going back there more as there is about 200 acres or more of woods and fields to metal detect!

My Maiden Voyage with the M6

Let me start by saying the Matrix M6 is a great machine... I took it out today for its maiden voyage and it performed flawlessly. I found some great things my first silver a 1923 Mercury dime and my oldest coin an 1895 Indian head penny. My favorite finds of the day were my first round ball and an iron carving which I found at 10". It appears to have a face on each side of it and a hole in the feather for a necklace.
