After one year with my dfx 300,i can say i am a hooked.With 13 gold finds these past six months,i am amazed.Using the custom coin and jewelry,and making a few changes ,I have 27 silver coins,over 100 sterling silver finds,and as i mentioned ,tweaking the discrimination,now on the way with gold.

See attached photo of todays hunt at an amphitheater-park grounds.the excitement drives me to share this great hobby.

there is no luck to it,luck is when preperation meets opportunity.In other words today i got up and swung the coil over an area i had planned to detect.the best find as a newbie so far,but after i get home i look forward to posting some of the other finds from the settings i am using.

Again using the preset coin and jewelry setting,set ac to 72,dc,to 33,vco on,and pre amp gain to 3.this after many hours of playing with the dfx 300 seems to be dead on for coins and silver and especially gold ,when you learn what to listen for after digging all those iffy numbers.enjoy the photos,this ring hit 46 on the vdi signagrapgh.posting past finds when i get home.
