V3i Finds a Beautiful Seated Liberty

My friend and I decided to detect a small local park with a few soccer fields. We both are detecting with V3i. The open area that we were detecting must had the ground cleared and leveled out some years ago for these young folks to play ball on. As we were detecting, both me and my buddy start finding rifle shells, can slaw, and some modern trash.

Some Awesome Finds With my MXT

I found out from the local paper about a church buying a city block with several houses on it. They tore down the houses and began to plan for a parking lot. I called the church to ask permission to hunt during construction. I knew this part of town was very old from doing research about the properties. The church also went back to the late 1800's and I couldn't wait to start hunting.

V3i Has Some Serious Depth

The weather is finally cooling so it is time to play in the dirt! I found these with my V3i at several depths anywhere from an inch to OVER a foot deep! The coolest thing is I went to a place my buddies said that has been hunted out. So I love to brag to them when my whites slaps shows them up. So thanks ya’ll for making a great unit.

V3i Recovers Lost Movie Prop on the Beach

What a day! I received a call around 2pm this afternoon from a guy from a movie production company that is filming in Long Beach Island (LBI) New Jersey. He explained that the lead actress lost a ring on the beach last night during filming on the beach. The ring was custom made by a jeweler in New York and is a big part in the movie.

Two of My Best Relic Finds With My MXT

Recently I got permission to hunt a plantation house site that dates back to the 1770's. I was ecstatic as this property had essentially never been hunted! On the first day I arrived, I pulled the MXT out of the trunk, turned it on, and the first target out of the ground was a Colonial shoe buckle! This was followed by a deep Navy cuff button, a good number of flat buttons, brass hinges, and other house site finds.

Dual Field is Great at Retrieving Coins

While driving to the beach, I spotted an area that stood out to me. It looked very different from what I was used to, there were some rocks that I had never seen in this area of the beach and it looked like sand was stripped away. Once I got to that spot, I immediately got a signal. After that first signal it was practically non-stop digging in what I'd estimate to be a 15 foot area front to back.

One Year of Detecting-With My MXT

I always took it on our yearly vacation to Seaside OR. and would use it on the beach in the early mornings while the family slept in and would maybe take it out 2 or 3 more time throughout the year. I was always happy with the money and things I found with it until last summer I have had more time to detect and have found 10 times the goodies by learning to use this detector to its full potential.

Gold, Ice, and My Dual Field

We were having a nasty storm that sanded in most of my hunting spots. However, knowing the depth my Dual Field PI can get, and chomping at the bit to get into the water, off I went.

I hit a local beach that is hunted hard and sure enough sand everywhere, but in I went. Working parallel with the shoreline instead of gridding because the conditions wasn't producing much of anything.
