White's DFX and 6" DD Excelerator Coil Do the Trick

All I can say is "Thanks JW for recommending the 6" EXCELERATOR DD coil". You have made my day. For about a year I have had a coin garden. It was very difficult to find a place in my yard where I could line up different coins because of all the metal in the ground. Finally I got the coins lined up about 2' apart with trash metal in between. When I put the 6" excelereator on my DFX and was doing some testing I got this signal right next to a piece of metal (I always missed it with the large stock coils). It was a small gold ring! I couldn't believe it!! Now I am convinced about these small DD coils. They are great in trash!
