Location: Indiana

Metal Detector Used: M-Series (800-0308)


December 1st, 2011

Dear White's Electronics,

I wanted to share the story of my first metal detector hunt. I just received my very first metal detector (MXT 300) yesterday, I have never used one so I played with it a bit in my backyard and today took it to a local park.

In the picture was my finds after about an hour, after I took the picture I found a few more coins that where the most exciting. In the picture there are 3 quarters, 4 dimes, and 4 pennies (2 are wheat’s). After the picture I found 5 more pennies (1 of them a wheat) 2 more dimes (1 silver) and a silver quarter. Could not believe it when saw they where silver on my first time out, can't wait to see what I find when I learn how to use my MXT300.
