Dear White's Electronics,

Wanted to share a hunting experience with other members of the White's family that I had this past summer. I have been hunting a large corn field located above a large creek  for the past couple of months. This particiular field has yielded many good relics including flat buttons, bullets, thimbles, and numerous iron finds. Because of the large number of iron objects I decided to marry my MXT up with a 5.3 Bullseye coil knowing I could better hunt this trashy area. After about a hour of hunting a strong signal of VDI 85 was picked up showing a depth of 5 inches.

I carefully removed the soil halfway expecting to find a large piece of iron when I clearly could make out the outline of a round disk. I couldn't make out what it was when it came out of the ground but knew it was the right size for a large cent. Sure enough after rinsing the coin off I could clearly make out the date 1794 and the features of a Liberty Cap large cent.

This was my first large cent and I thought it would probably be the only one I would ever find, but a week later in the same field using the 12 inche coil I found a 1823 large cent! I will definitely continue to hunt this field with my MXT and maybe it will give up number 3. 

Thanks White's for making such a fine machine as the MXT, I can attest that it is a real relic getter.
