Whites Electronics,

I have been detecting for over 35 years, and only have had about a dozen detectors, but have had the greatest service, and best finds from the 6 White's detectors, I have owned. Presently I have 3 detectors, a White's Coinmaster Classic III, an IDX, and I bought a new M6, with an extra 5.3 Eclipse coil in January of this year.

Since I have bought my M6, I have found my oldest coin with it, a 1875 Seated half and also a 1914 Barber quarter.(Pictured in the June 2007 stories) They were found in an old WW1 training camp. The 3 Barber dimes pictured here were found in the old camp that had over 30,000 soldiers go through it, in 1917-1919. When I first started detecting years ago, I was told by a few "seasoned metal detector users", that this area was a "hunted out" area and no more old coins were to be found.

I dug the 1899 Barber Dime, and the 1907 Barber Dime in the middle of November 2007, and the 1903 Barber Dime, was dug a few months ago, in the same area. Those "seasoned detector users" must not have been using White's detectors, back then.

Your detectors are of the highest quality and they get the job done!!!!!!!!!!
