August 1st, 2011

Dear White's,

Six of my friends and I spent a weekend at a hunting camp in upstate Pennsylvania. Due to health issues I was unable to hunt turkeys or fish in the high mountains like the rest of the guys. However, on Saturday afternoon we all went to an old cemetery where I put my White's Prizm V model to work.

I got a nice hit at four inches under a tree root. My friend digging said it felt like he was reaching into a dead man's pants pocket. Out of one hole we pulled six coins; 1909,1910, and 1918 wheat pennies, a 1916 buffalo nickel, a 1914 Barber dime and a 1916D Barber quarter. I believe when we return to camp next time, six guys will leave their fishing rods and guns at home and come with metal detectors.

Dale from PA
