Hello White's!!

I wanted to tell you about a recent bunch of finds that I made with my M6. The spot was a site where an old one room schoolhouse used to stand. It was torn down in the late 60s. An old timer from the area told me about this spot, and I did some research on it. It was an old pasture that had never been tilled before and as it turned out, it had never been detected before!!!

The first day there I found 11 silver coins along with a nice handful of V nickels and Buffalo nickels, Indian head pennies and wheat pennies. Coins were everywhere!!! The M6 was sniffing them out right and left!!

When I finally finished it this spring because the grass was getting too tall, I had totaled these coins.

81 Coins (the newest was 1926 and the oldest was 1865)
18 Silver coins
Including 7 Barber dimes, 3 Barber Qtrs, 1 Seated dime 6 Merc. Dimes, 1 SLQ, 4 Buffalo nickels, 9 V nickels, 1 shield nickel, 1 2cent piece, 19 Indian pennies, 23 wheat's. Not to mention the 14Kt gold ring and a couple of silver pieces of jewelry.

A fantastic spot that I will defiantly be returning to next spring when the grass is short again!!! The M6 is one awesome machine and I want to thank White's for making it!!! Now that the Spectra V3 is out, I'm saving my money for it!

White's is a SUPER company!!! Thank you!!!
