Item Found: Coin

Location: Oklahoma

Metal Detector Used: Other (800-0314)


July 1st, 2009

We purchased a Prizm V and Prizm IV about three years ago. Originally we almost made a mistake because we were going to buy just one Prizm IV and share it but we decided to get both just before going on vacation and we couldn’t be happier. After a year and a half we had build up so much change that we cleaned up what was in better shape and cashed in close to $300, since then we have cashed in at least another $200 more. Of the more special items found there has been a dozen silver pre-1960 Washington Quarters, seven silver rings, several Mercury Dimes and bunches of Wheat Pennies. The one most treasured item found? An 1899 silver quarter at 7 inches in an area that was being prepared for construction, it would now be under a concrete driveway. It used to be that I couldn’t get my wife to stop fishing at dark, well fishing has become a secondary hobby to metal detecting and I have to bring flashlights when we go metal detecting because I can’t drag her away until she is good and ready. Next we are considering a move up to more functionality, especially since we’ve been completely satisfied with White’s Products.

Good Hunting and Thanks for showing us a hobby that can be so much fun.

Thank You,
Tim S.
