Dear White's,

Recently I was invited to hunt some really mineralized ground in an area that was known to be a large Civil War Union winter camp. I knew the reputation this sort of ground had, so I brought my new pulse scan TDI, which my wife bought me.

The particular field that my host and I were hunting had been "written off" by other VLF users in the past, but the TDI brought it back to life like you wouldn't believe! In ground where you can normally only get several inches of depth, with our TDI's we were able to dig relics at 12" +, and have nice clear tones.

I got into what I call "button mode" and within about 5 ½ hours I dug all of what you see in the photos... buttons, bullets, knapsack hook, bayonet scabbard tip, bullseye rosette, ect. I kept finding pieces and parts of a sword belt plate, and was hoping that the rest of it would appear, but apparently that was the one thing the other machines were actually able to hear!

We thank you White's for making a machine that can punch through the most difficult ground conditions ever and find deep relics!
