White's Electronics

After almost giving up on an old home site, I decided to move away from the house and hunt along a rock wall. I'm glad that I did because at 3-4 inches down and scattered in about an area of 20 square feet, I found 16 Wheaties, the oldest a 1933 along with a few 1960's and 1970's pennies.

After recovering my pennies, I moved to the other side of the wall facing the front yard and I found 5 copper Boy Scout handkerchief collars, yes 5. After 10 more minutes of hunting or so around the front yard that was mostly hard packed dirt, I found some costume rings an earring, and a flattened penny from Disneyland, also at 3-4 inches down.

I love my Prizm III because I'm able to use it in a variety of places and I'm always amazed at how well it gets targets down deep.
