Its your money and don't be offended but spending $1000+ won't guarantee happiness or better finds. If she likes the Garrett format then stick with Garrett. The AT series has been a proven success and is lightweight plus a lot less than $1000. The learning curve with an AT model will be a lot less than with a White's Spectra series and the AT will be a lot lighter to swing than a GTI 2500. You are a blessed man to have a wife that is interested in detecting. Spending a lot of money on your wife is impressive but maybe not necessary in this case. A capable and lightweight machine which she can learn fast and swing all day while finding the goodies will not be a disappointment to her. The time you spend together in this awesome hobby is priceless. Good luck with whatever you decide.
    GOOD REPLY----------------I agree, stick with one you are at least familiar with.

    Looking around I see a couple of possibilities:
    --Garrett GTI 2500
    ---Whites Spectra V3I
    ---Whites TDI SL
    ---Whites Spectra VX3

    Will be doing her detecting in Virginia in fields and woods looking mostly for civil war artifacts and coins. NOT beach hunting gold prospecting.

    I don't mind spending $1000 or so on a decent detector that SHE WILL ENJOY and will not be a DISAPPOINTMENT.

    What do you guys think is my best bet?
    Whites Spectra V3I without a doubt.
