V3i Finds an 1874 Seated Half Dollar

I just wanted to let everyone at White’s know just what a fantastic product the V3I is. I had just put my detector together and went out to Beaver Creek State Park here in Ohio and my first swing nets me a 1874 seated half dollar at eight inches that rang loud and clear. The rest of the day gave up six Indian head pennies, a V nickel, and a sterling pendant and back.

All of these were firsts for me and I have been detecting with other brands for years and decided to try White’s. You have gained a customer for life and I can’t thank you enough for making such an awesome machine. It’s spoiling me rotten!!!

Thanks a million!!!
