Dear White's,

I recently went on a Relic hunt in Virginia where the dirt is extremely mineralized and targets are tough to find. I was in an open field when my MXT gave a loud signal and the VDI read 87. I figured it to be an aluminum can and was about to walk over it, but then I looked at the graph bar and noticed it was a full line. I decided then to dig it and boy was I thankful for that graph bar. It turned out to be a Confederate Calvary "C" rosette.

My dream was to find a plate, but this was a fantasy find for me. I told a friend and he offered to trade me 3 plates for my "C" rosette. I politely refused and now it proudly hangs in my relic room. I just want to say thanks for a simple to use and great detector. Pictures are of my total finds and the "C" rosette in its display case.
