Metal Detector Used: Other (800-0300)


April 1st, 2010
  Dear White's Electronics,

Hello all fellow treasure seekers from the state of Kansas, I have been metal detecting for about 17 years only using White's metal detectors starting with a 6000 Coinmaster working my way up through every Eagle model made to the XLT and now I am a DFX owner.

This story is about my 10 year old son Adam who wanted to go along with me on a 2 hr hunt at a spot I have been working all year long. He was using my XLT and I was using an Eagle Spectrum. He went his way and I went mine, I was digging up a silver ring when he yelled out "I found a wheat penny 4 inches deep, but I can't make out the date." I said "Bring it here."

I gave it a light rub and said "It looks like 1914, but I can't tell if it is a D or S." Adam took it back and said "it is a D" I smiled and Adam said "Is it a good one?" My response was wait till we get home and we will look it up in the book. When he saw the values you should have seen the grin. It was "priceless"

The condition of the penny is XF if cleaned, but I think we will leave it as is. This site we have been going to has produced lots of great barber coins, Indian pennies, and lots of jewelry.

Thanks to all the people at White's for making a great metal detector and for giving me the opportunity to see the priceless grin on Adams face.

(By the way he won find of the month in our club, in Hutchinson, Kansas)
