Dear Friends,

The following is our fantastic story of having our White’s detector! In April of 1984 we purchased our metal detectors. They were Coinmaster 5000/ DGEB. My sister and brother-in-law were dealers for White’s for a short period so we bought ours from them.

In 1987 my husband purchased his White’s Eagle Spectrum from Don, I must tell you he is one of your finest representatives for your company! We have dealt with him ever since. Once we started hunting it was so rewarding to find lots of silver and gold jewelry and silver coins. My husband bought his Eagle with a gold ring he found.

I’m writing to tell you we have been metal detecting for 24 ½ years. On December 15, 2008 we reached 100,000 coins. We are so proud to say we have accomplished this. My husband is 86 years old and I’m 83, so we were in our 60’s when we started.

I hope this will inspire others to enjoy this fun sport. I still have my 5000 DGEB and its working great!

Good luck to all who have a White’s metal detector!

Charles & Mary (PA)
