I will second this statement and include the Exp II also.The Minelab Explorer XS. It is ,hands down, the best silver sniffer and most accurate metal detector that I've owned. It had great depth especially with the factory coil. Sure it was a low and slow metal detector, but by doing so you never missed out on the good stuff!
I agree I found my oldest coin a 1782 Spanish 2 reale with it.I'd like to think my latest detector is my best - the XP DEUS 2. Found also well with the Deus 1, not that good with the Goldmax Power. Of course I'm digging more holes now for signals I might have ignored in the past since the D2 really screams on them.
For modern items, my hands-down favorite is the Whites M6. I have found so many firsts with it - 1st trade token, 1st standing liberty, 1st gold ring (turned out it belonged to my cousin who had lost it 8 years earlier), 1st gold nugget, 1st buffalo, shield and V nickel, 1st barber dime, 1st seated liberty dime..... The list goes on and on. Thing is crazy for gold. I found 18 gold items with it in the first year.In your hunting adventures what has been the best detector you ever had
