     Dear White's Electronics,

I found my second gold coin with my friend the White's M6. It was in an old meadow where a farmer's home had been since 1500. The farmhouse had been torn down last year, so it was just clay and soil. I went to the farmer and asked him for permission to search there with my MD and he permitted.

After one hour of searching with little or no finds at all I got a clear signal, but with a very low VDI number. At first I decided to walk by and not dig, but something told me that I had to dig it up. I pulled out a square plug of grass and soil and to my surprise there laid a beautiful shining gold coin. I jumped up and down in excitement and the farmer came to see what had happened. I showed him my find and he congratulated me on the find.

The farmer told me that many people with metal detectors have searched this very meadow with no great luck and now I have a beautiful 15th century gold coin. As I went along, after about a half hour and about one hundred yards later I got another nice signal from my M6. As I began to dig another plug there was a gold wedding ring.

I went straight to my car and decided to call it a day. I didn't want to overdue my luck by searching longer! The coin is a Hertog Gelre/Karel v Egmond 1492-1538 (not dated) Rijder Goud Gulden Mijmegen or Roermond with lillys.
