Silver Trench Art Find

About 2 months ago I decided to go on a quick trip while the wife walked the dogs. I decided to go to an old homestead...a.k.a. my parent's front yard. About 5 minutes into my hunt and removing a few screws off coke caps, I get a weird signal.

I Have Found Over 450 Coins with My VX3

I just wanted to share a short story with you. I have been using White’s metal detectors for over 40 years. My first detector was a Coinmaster Supreme, a lot heavier than the newer ones but a great machine none the less.

V3i Produces Quite the Load of Relics

I have been a V3i owner for a couple of years now. Hands down it is the best detector out on the market and I have tried some of the others out there. So far with my V3i I have dug lots of silver coins. But these finds are by far my best that I have ever dug.

Hooked on White's Thanks to My M6

I took my new White's M6 metal detector out today for the second time and detected an old grange fair park. I found a hand full of coin including a 1952 silver dime, over 10+ wheat pennies and this jem.

V3i Saves a Mother's Day

I thought I would send this after reading the owners rendition of the whole scenario. It seems that there was more to the story over the loss and the history of the earring than I knew ahead of taking the V3i to the field. This was found yesterday, May 21st, out in an open field, using my V3i. Her friend was swinging my M6, Cathy and I have been working together for a month or two since she decided to get into detecting, she using my M6. We had the other earring to sample before the hunt in order to get proper tone and VDI. The owner's story was mainly why I felt that White’s would appreciate reading this. I am also pleased that...

First Beach Find of the Summer

I would like to share my ice breaker story with you with my Beachhunter 300. I have 2 m/d my Beachhunter and my V3i. I decide now that the weather is getting warmer and the beaches are getting more activity I would take my Beachhunter out of hibernation and see what was waiting for me at my local beach.

V3i Finds a Spanish Cob in NJ

While detecting an old farm field in New Jersey I got a nice repeatable tone with a VDI of 72 on my V3i. The depth read at four inches. I dug up this Spanish cob. At first I thought it was a dime until I picked off the dirt.

I Am Really Enjoying My V3i

I want to thank you for building such superior metal detectors. After several months of investigating different types of metal detectors and talking to metal detecting companies, I found Jimmy Sierra and his son Jim, who are distributors of your product. They are very professional and knowledgeable. I bought my first MXT then my second was the DFX and now I’m the proud owner of the V3i. It is unbelievable!

My Dual Field is Killing it at the Beach

Our beaches have been hit hard by Nor’easters this winter removing lots of sand. My two friends and I went out for a day of detecting. We were getting lots of targets...I was clearly getting more depth and more targets than the two other detectors (Excal & Etrac). I ended the day with over 100 coins, some silver, many old bullets & musket balls and some silver jewelry.
