Hi to everyone at XP… My name is Sonya I use an XP Deus and mostly hunt in the Huntingdon Region of Indiana.
I just wanted to let you know what your amazing machine helped me find recently.
I was out detecting in a field which showed an old home site on my 1866 map. I had been there several times with my AT Pro, and have found some neat relics including a few Indian Head pennies, but not much more in coins.
After upgrading to the Deus in October of last year, roughly 3 months ago I decided to go back in November to see if I had missed any deep targets. On that day, I found another Indian Head, and 2 V nickels which was really impressive.
So eager to test the XP Deus some more I decided to go back again the next day, and guess what !! I found a BEAUTIFUL 1857 $1 gold coin!
So far this machine continues to amaze me with the way it finds!
I’ve only been detecting now for 15 months, 13 of those months have been with the AT Pro which got me 18 Indian Heads, a 2 cent coin, and a shield nickel.
So far, in 3 months with the Deus, I have found 6 Indian Heads, 2 V nickels, a shield nickel, a Large Cent, a Seated Dime, a Barber Dime, and of course my fantastic Gold coin.
I can’t say enough how pleased I am with this machine. I’m sure as I use it more and learn more about it’s wide range of options and features my finds and enjoyment will continue to increase.
I can’t wait to see what I find next!
Thank you for all you do at XP
