White's Electronics,

I have been metal detecting over 40 years, my first detector was a White’s and 40 years later I’m still using 2 White’s Eagle Spectrums. It’s always nice to have backup every chance I get I’m hunting around colonial houses or colonial cellar holes.

I have found many coins, buttons, buckles and many colonial artifacts over the years This U.S Oval Cartridge Box Plate got my heart pumping. After receiving permission to search a colonial cellar I walked back to my car and grabbed my White’s Eagle Spectrum, my very first signal read solid half dollar on the screen 6 inches deep out came the U.S Plate a very nice addition to my collection. Thanks White’s for making such a reliable and easy to learn machine.
