Dear whites,

Thank you for such a awesome machine. My DFX has treated me so good over the past couple of years since I started metal detecting. I look forward to the first hunt of the year when the ground is soft enough for me to go beeping.

I had to go to my friends body shop to pick up my wife's bumper for her car that's a whole other story in itself. Lets not go there. I took my DFX along for the ride just in case I got to play and i got to play for ten minutes until my wife called to come home. While I was metal detecting an old train station got no hits and was just about to shut her down and got a weak hit so I flicked the trigger and pinpointed the target at 7 1/2 in deep. I pulled a plug and broke apart the semi frozen soil and a silver dime popped out and hey cool another mercury, that's cool. Then I looked at the date and saw 1916 real clear and my heart started racing as I flipped it over I saw a mint mark but could not make it out very well because of all the dirt on her. So I took her home and ran her under some warm soapy water and looked at her and it was the D., tears started running down my face. I could not believe what I was looking at. WOW. I took her to my local coin shop and he said it looked like it was in very good shape.

Oh yea I almost forgot I went back to the train station before it could get to dark out to play and found an 1854 1 dollar gold piece at 10 in deep what a day.
