I have been having a blast with my White’s V3i for two years now. I have been finding many wheat penny's and more silver this year than ever before. Most of the older coins are down six to eight inches. I am finding these coins around old homes in my own area. One of my most impressive finds happened when I was going over an area which gets metal detected a lot. It is located in a local park. The grass is thick, and it was a steep incline. There were hardly any coins to be found. There was lots of chopped up aluminum cans everywhere. I got a really interesting signal that I thought about ignoring. It was mixed from from VDI's 27 up to 78. The high pitched sounds and the high VDI number plus a ring icon got me digging. The first thing I pulled out was a small piece of aluminum. It was down about three inches. Then I found a broken junk ring band. It was 4 inches down. I checked again with my V3i and I still was getting the same signals. I poked around some more and found the rest of the junk ring. I checked the area again. This time I got a strong ring and silver signal. Down another inch I found the most beautiful amethyst ring in perfect condition. All these targets were lined up one on top of the other. I can't believe how accurate the V3i was. The information I was getting from the start indicated all the items which were eventually uncovered. Metal detecting with this machine is the very best. Thank you for making the best metal detecting equipment in the world.
