V3i Kills it on Route 66!

I was on my way home today and I live close to Route 66 and there is a gas station that just keeps on pulling me toward it. So today I decided to stop and look around a little with my V3i.

Well it wasn't long before I got a good signal and I dug my first Merc ever. Then I hit some clad and a Hot Wheel car. After that I hit a slammer at six inches and pulled out a 1950 Ben Franklin Half dollar. I couldn’t have done it without my V3i I don’t think.
