  White's,

Metal detecting is the greatest hobby I have ever known. Ever since I have started, I can't complain, it's a win/win situation. It has saved me from myself in so many ways. It has paid itself and continues to pay me back.

I take great care of it by cleaning it often and making sure it is properly maintained by always putting fresh batteries when needed. I have found eighteen presidential medals from the U.S. mint worth about $3.50 each, but that's not important, these medals were found under some trees on a vacation strip leading to a closed trailer park!

The park is right behind a local numismatic business probably thrown away by somebody not interested in them. They are made of bronze and I thought "WOW" after the first one, then I was just elated after the eighteenth. They are a really outstanding reading at +92 on each, with beautiful coloring.

I found these with a variety of depths of about one to three inches in an area of thirty feet around. I can make sure if I was a time traveler make no mistake, the DFX as my six shooter would win a coin fight!

Sincerely

Jason S. (North San Diego)
