White's Coinmaster Brings My Family Closer Together!
My names Marc and I live up here in Maine and I want to share my story. My wife recently bought me a Coinmaster thinking that maybe it will give me a hobby to do and become more active. I was so excited when I received it and immediately went out my door and turned it on within less than a minute I picked up a strong tone and started digging....

Nice Find With My Coinmaster!
I would just like to say that the White's Coinmaster I bought is an awesome metal detector. I was up against the pros and some top end detectors with NH Bob, and other people from the forum on a hunt in VT. They were using Minelab, the V3 and some other expensive detectors....

Happy With My Coinmaster
After I got my metal detector, the Coinmaster, I headed to Myrtle Beach. We were there for a week camping and I found $4.12 in coins. On the fourth day of my trip I was metal detecting at our campsite. I was getting a reading that was saying a penny or a dime. I wiped the leaves and sand away and right there was a sterling silver heart necklace! I was really excited, it made my day!...

Happy Days!

Hi, my name is Ron, I was metal detecting at Macgregor School with my Coinmaster. I found three bottle caps from the 70's that twist off. Next to the bleacher I hit the mother lode. I found a 14kt 18 grams gold ring.

Coinmaster Finds 1875 Seated Liberty Quarter
I've recently purchased a White's Coinmaster. This is my first detector and I've been really happy with it. My second time out I found this Seat Liberty Quarter 1875 cc, graded VG from a local coin dealer. I am extremely happy and hooked for life! I've been doing a lot of research on newer detectors and can't wait till I can afford one. I'm in love with your V3, but not sure if I'll ever be able to afford it :-) The Coin master is a great detector, but I'm sure my site has so much more hidden deeper than this detector can go. Thanks for such a wonderful product!...

One Fine Day
Another fine day detecting - this time with the Weekend Wanderers Jan 2nd 2011. Eight little Roman coins found, a lump of lead (I wanted to find it honest!) and a couple of shotgun caps and a lead "thingy" - Not bad considering many of the other searchers on the rally found nothing. E-TRAC ready for the next outing....

Set For Success
My story begins with my first ever dig and it was at Corfe Castle 2010 at Nordan Farm, got there on Monday with Captainpugwash. We did two days of sightseeing then went onto the very, very steep hill (almost died) lol. Found two Roman coins. Met Neil (slow and low) he took my detector, put in a programme and over the next two day found another eight. I thought to myself WOW, the man’s a genius lol....
