V3i Finds a King Williams Farthing!

I wanted to let you know my V3i is doing well, I took it out to Salisbury Beach (Massachusetts) after the blizzard. Salisbury was considered the Atlantic City of Massachusetts in 1800. The storm caused a lot of beach erosion. As suspected the beach was filled with detectorists moving slowly behind a pack of (non-White's users) I pulled an Indian head penny and then what I thought was a large cent.

After careful evaluation and feedback from the members of the NH Bob forum I was told that I had my first 1600's coin... a King William!
