Dear White’s,

I have been metal detecting for 23 years, being retired from work leaves me lots of time for metal detecting. I’ve been detecting in the Bay city of Michigan, which is an old lodging town with lots of bars dated back to the 1800’s.

White detecting last week I found an 1885 V nickel under the sidewalks that are being replaced. This is a find of a lifetime, with that some 1800 Indian head coins and silver coins.

I love the XLT, it’s a great machine!

Doug
