Metal Detector Treasure Finds, Pictures and Stories
V3i is a Step Above the Rest!
I just purchased a White's V3i this spring and have not been able to get out much due to the extremely hot and dry weather this summer. I can however say the V3I is an amazing machine! I finely got out for a couple hours and went to a local park (you know the hunted out type park) :-)
This particular area I hunted is the same area I have hunted numerous times and had luck sneaking thru the trash for a silver coin before but the history of the area tells me there is a lot more hiding. The first coin I found was the Mercury Dime at about 7 inches and it came in loud and clear. I used the analyze mode and it confirmed the VDI tones with a strong 2.5 frequency bar.
The next hit was jumping slightly but still in the penny dime range and showing about 6 inches but pin pointing rather small but I decided to dig anyway and retrieved the sliver of a silver quarter shown in the picture. WOW 6 inches on that tiny piece and the V3I still was telling me a probable coin!
All I can say is the V3I is steps above all the rest. It not only goes DEEP it also has numerous tools to help you access the target before you even dig. I dug a lot of targets just to test the accuracy of what the V3I was telling me and it said junk on the junk and treasure on the treasure! This will cut my time digging trash by a huge margin and give me more time to sniff out those treasures!
