Is there not a good one printed on the XLT?



Bells and whistles are nice, but nothing will substitute for the basic understanding of the hobby.

You are so right! I guess I was referring more to old coin VDI numbers!N/T

Old coin VDI #'s will usually be very close to the newer coins of the same type, but like all targets, the VDI will and can vary depending on the amount of wear on the coin, the angle of the coin, the depth, multiple coins in the same hole and if there are any other metal near the target. In other works, don't depend on only a VDI. If it sounds good or even if you think it could be something worth digging, dig. We all have dug "maybes" that turn out to be fantastic finds. The VDI was no where near what you would expect for the above reasons. The VDI becomes less reliable the deeper the target and the VDI is just a tool to help you "guess" what might be in the ground.

Note: These VDI readings are "average" readings, taken from two different XLT's at different times in separate locations, using several passes of the searchcoil at a moderate speed. The ground conditions for this test were neutral, and should be considered "ideal", with little or no mineralization. Average depth of target was three inches or less. Many factors will determine what VDI Reading your XLT will display on these coins, including, ground conditions, moisture, depth of target, wear of coin, position of coin, and, of course, its proximity to trash! In short, remember that your detector, even one as terrific as the Spectrum XLT, will only tell you what metal is in the ground, and not its value!

The link Fred posted went to a discount metal detector dealer's web site with address and telephone number. ADMIN considers that free advertising for the dealer and is not allowed.

Fred was severely disciplined and his hand is probably still hurting.......:laugh:

18 months ago i was at a construction site where i found 250+ silver coins. they were of all denominations. silver dollars were in expected ranges. quarters were also. i was surprised to find that the dimes were all over the place. mercs and barbers especially could be in the penny range. finding so many in the same place gave me the chance to see the variation in the same field conditions. now i always dig any coin in this range.

Tried to send pm.M:detecting:aybe this will help
