My BeachHunter 300 Recovers $25,000 Ring

I received a call from a woman in Long beach Island,New Jersey today that needed help to find her 2 wedding/engagement rings that were possibly lost on the beach the day before. Although I had other plans for today I could tell the urgency as she was crying on the phone so I responded to her that I was on my way! Upon arriving at the site with my White's BHID 300 on the beach where she was laying out with the kids yesterday and set up at again we went through what may have happened to the rings if in fact they were there at all as she was not positive. With everyone on the beach now watching what I was doing I asked her to move all of...

My V3i Finds Gold at the Beach

Recently we had a club hunt at a local beach here in central California. I started out using my trusty TDI SL but found out immediately that there was way to much iron and other trash on this beach to effectively hunt it with a PI detector. So I went back to the car and grabbed my trusty V3i and put my 14X8 coil on it. Although this coil is not V rated it works like a charm on my V3i. I started gridding the beach and about 2 hours in I received a soft low signal. Since I dig everything I didn't even look at the meter and proceeded to scoop up the signal. When I looked in my basket I saw a small gold object that looked like a piece of ...

My Best Find to Date with My MXT

My dad and I went metal detecting around some old mining ghost towns in Nevada. We were digging a lot of trash both inside and outside the old building foundations. While searching around the perimeter of an old rock wall next to the ruins of a building, I got a signal on my MXT that was sharper than the broken signals from the trash we were getting all morning.

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.

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.
