White's Electronics,

I found these old silver and copper coins while metal detecting at my neighbors in Illinois. My neighbor's house was built in the late 1800's and I thought it would be a good spot to look for old coins. I spent about 3 hours for 2 days combing her yard. I found 4 Indian heads and 3 silver coins, all from the early 1900s. I also found 7 wheat pennies, and a lot of old hardware from when the house was remolded sometime in the early 60's.

The White's Eagle II is one of my favorite detectors. It was an invaluable tool in searching the neighbor's yard for old coins. I have used this detector before, and it has never once let me down. I have been metal detecting for over 2 years, I have used other brands, and after purchasing and using a White's detector, if I decide to upgrade to a more advanced model, my choice will be White's!
