My 2 Cents on the Coinmaster GT

I recently came into possession of a White’s Coinmaster GT. I have a favorite spot that I thought had been cleared of any and all targets a long time ago, by myself and a buddy of mine. We go metal detecting all of the time. I started with a Bounty Hunter and then moved up to a Garrett. I was really impressed with the Coinmaster GT and thought I would give it a shot at an old burned down church up the street.

Within the first 5 feet I was getting signals, which amazed me because I had been there a few dozen times with other machines. The last time I was there I didn’t find a thing. The Coinmaster GT was ge...

Coinmaster Pro Finds a 25lb Pry Bar
Here is a picture of my latest find with my Coinmaster Pro. I dug it in my backyard (woods). At first I thought it was a pipe, and then as I dug I realized it wasn't hollow. Next I thought it was some kind of fence post....

Vacation Finds With My Coinmaster GT

In early 2013, I purchased a White's Coinmaster GT. I have hunted in my own yard and on some of the Gulf Coast beaches to become acquainted with the detector's features. I have been very impressed and happy with the GT.

A couple of months ago, I was given permission to hunt on a local public soccer field. I have hunted there a few times, finding a few coins and numerous trash items (i.e. bottle caps and pull tabs). On a clear May afternoon, I decided to hunt there again. After hunting for a couple hours and finding a few more coins and trash items, it was time to go. I decided to make one more pass of the fi...

Coinmaster GT Finds a Pair of Earring at the Beach
On June 3, 2013 after a major storm I went to our local beach hoping to try out my new Coinmaster GT at low tide. After about an hour of finding a lot of change and bottle caps, I received a signal in the ring range with a VDI scale of +70....

Coinmaster Pro Is A Winner
I have a winner with the White’s Coinmaster Pro! In just two months of hunting I have found a dozen of nice rings, a bunch of silver coins and colonial artifacts. One of the artifacts is a rare Robert Wells brass bell from the 1700’s. Richard Wells was a famous English bell maker and his bells are highly collectable....

White's is Affordable and Top Notch

Well my passion for metal detecting started when I was a kid but I was never able to get one due to a lack of money and then I discovered White’s Electronics and they were affordable and had a very good reputation so I bought a Coinmaster Pro.

I Can't Say Enough Good Things About White's

The start of the hunting season starts very early in southern Louisiana while the snow is flying in the north, down here it isn't that cold. With my White's Coinmaster in hand, I found a new place to hunt and maybe with a little luck...a good piece of jewelry or a silver coin to take home with me. If I only knew what awaited for me...GOLD! A 14K cross about the size of a 50 cent piece. So keep hunting...there are many more great finds like this.

My Coinmaster Finds an 1834 Campaign Button
I have had my Coinmaster now for going on 3 years, and have found everything but gold so far. I recently moved to another area in Pennsylvania. This town was founded in early 1800's.

The day that I found the 1834 campaign button I was hunting alongside of a house, in between the sidewalk and the house. I found plenty of nails but I was trying to dig every hit on the Coinmaster and then I got a nickel range signal and it was about 3 inch down.

When it first came out of the ground I thought it was an older coin, and then I saw it was just another flat button. Which is a good find, but I have found plenty of them be...

Coinmaster Pro Finds a Class Ring Three Steps From My Truck

It was a cold windy December day (the 27th I believe). As I recall I was detecting with a friend and his mother in Currituck Co. NC at a local school. We were digging coin after coin, and my Coinmaster started to hurt my shoulder, I had been swinging it for 4 hours.

I decided to take a break and drink some hot tea and go through the loot I had dug. After my break I decided to use my Coinmaster Pro with the mini DD coil which was much lighter on my shoulder. I walked 3 steps from the back of the truck just through an opening in the fence and my Coinmaster Pro went off with a good signal.
