Dear White’s Electronics,

My name is Rick, and I live in Southeastern Massachusetts. I've been a White’s customer for about three years now, and the MXT is my detector of choice. I recently started on a new site that dates back to the mid 1600's.

I was doing pretty good on silver coins, when I decided to take a walk and look around, well I saw another area that just 'looked' good. After ten minutes I got a weak half dollar hit at about five inches, after removing four inches I saw the look of silver in the hole, and it turned out to be a buckle! From what I've been told it's a mid 1700's shoe buckle! I've made some cool finds with my machine, but this is my new favorite piece for sure!!

My thanks to all involved with making the MXT.

White’s customer for life

Thanks, Rick
