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.

V3i Finds a 1781 Token

With the first hard frost ready to hit our region I grabbed my V3i with the 6x10 coil and I headed out to a foundation site in the woods near our house. Mostly had the itch to get out and do one last hunt with my White’s V3i before winter settles in.

V3i Helps Me Find My First Gold Coin

With winter fast approaching and an unseasonable forecast for a high of 68 degree's myself and two of my hunting buddies decided to get out for what could very well be the last hunt of the year. We decided to hunt an old fairground that dates back to the late 1800's. The site is now split between a corn field and woods. This particular site has been hunted hard for at least 30 years.

V3i and MXT Find Silver Mother Load

A friend of mine said he had a day free so, we set up a hunt. I (V3i) knew of a very large park yet to be explored by either of us. We hunted for several hours and got about 15 coins or so...it was so clean and not even one pull tab!

Bringing Home a Silver with My V3i

I spend a lot of time with my White’s machines hunting for civil war relics, but it never ceases to amaze me as to how many other nice finds can be had unexpectedly in a civil war site. One very common find, unrelated to the battles, are newer coins. I've found coins in the middle of huge open fields, far out in the woods, just about anywhere.

Wedding Ring Lost and Returned with the M6

Just a short story to say you can trust the White’s metal detectors to work. A friend of mine for 15 yrs called and said he had lost his wedding ring that he has had for over 40 yrs. I responded by saying I will be over in a couple of days to look for it, he said I have another friend that is loaning me a detector so give me a chance to look for it.

My First Great Find with My MXT

I am new to the whole metal detecting scene. A couple friends of mine were always talking about what they found and how much fun they were having, so I decided to buy a White’s MXT since it’s what they had and join them. I starting detecting with them every Sunday morning but was having trouble finding anything.

Hunting With My MXT is Fantastic

I love hunting with my White's MXT metal detector because it's so easy and fun to hunt with. I recently used the White's MXT at local Boy's Club football field which is owned by the city school system. I had permission to hunt the sites, as I always ask before going on private or public owned property.
