A Super Week of Detecting and Great Deeds

As a member of The Ring Finders lost jewelry recovery network I received 4 calls this week from people who lost jewelry items at the beach here in New Jersey.

The 1st call was for a Tungsten wedding band that had been lost in the dry sand 2 days prior to the call and offered a $100.00 reward. The owner was able to provide detailed information to the area of the loss and within minutes of turning on my BeachHunter 300 I had the ring in my scoop! I called the owner who was very happy and amazed that I found it. I met up with his very thankful wife and returned the ring.

V3i Cleans Up After Another Brand on the Beach

This winter I have been detecting with my White’s V3i on a Northeast beach that has been producing lots of finds from the 1800’s. To be honest, I thought I was the only one who detected this part of the beach, but recently I met a guy there who had an entry level machine (another brand) and said he has been pulling finds from there for the last 5 years. We talked a while and he said he hadn't found anything that day so then he wished me luck and went on his way. I decided to take a pass over his holes as I always do whenever I see another detector’s holes.

The M6 Isn't One to Underestimate

I just wanted to show you what the M6 turned up last month. My hunting buddy and I had a chance to hunt a private campground that by all appearances has not been hunted before. They two photos show two different days at the beach and playground area.

Father & Son Team Enjoying Detecting

My Dad and I have been using your metal detectors for 6 wonderful years now, and we are both big White's fans. We go out almost every weekend and it's how we spend our time together. My Dad has a Prizm IV and I have a MXT, both of which we have had great success.

MXT Finds Ring with 37 Diamonds

This past autumn, my wife was hospitalized for about two months with a very serious illness. We live in the mountains of the Eastern Sierra, but the hospital was near Santa Barbara, about 300 miles from our home. So I pretty much lived out of our motorhome along the beaches during that time.

6x9 Eclipse Coil is Great With my V3i

I am writing to let you know about my V3i. I don't have any exciting finds to tell you about right now, but I do have a piece of lead smaller than a penny that I dug at almost 2 feet! I have been tweaking my V almost every time I go out to try to get the best depth I can get.

M6 Finds at a POW Camp

Over a year and a half ago a friend of mine mentioned the whereabouts of a WWII POW Camp in Michigan. He knew the land owner where he believed the camp used to be and granted us permission to hunt it. The first hunt was not as successful as I was a novice relic hunter at the time. If you gave me a coin signal under the M6, I would have it found in a jiffy, but relics were a new game for me.
