Dear White’s,

I was recently cleaning out some old papers and ran across an old White’s Treasure Magazine. I read some of the stories and looked at the finds and decided to send you some pictures of some of my finds over the years.

A friend of mine got me interested in detecting in 1983 and I became hooked very quickly. I purchased a used White’s 6000 DI from his father. I then purchased a new 6000 DI and after many years of good service I bought a new Spectrum which I still use today.

I have found over 250 silver coins dating from 1820’s to the 1960’s and hundreds of pennies and other coins that aren’t silver. Jewelry, rings, knife keys, tokens, old axe heads, and kid’s toys are just some of the things I have found.

You never know what you might find out there, for instance one time I found a little copper kettle and when I was cleaning it up on the bottom I could see some letters and when I was done, I found out it was made out of a wheat penny. Go figure?

Another time I found three Civil War mini balls from a battle between the Union Cavalry and Morgan’s Raiders at a town called Old Washington, OH.

I could tell you hundreds of stories but I won’t. I just wanted you to know how much I have enjoyed using my White’s detectors and how dependable they are. All three of my detectors still work after all these years.

John L.
