August 1st, 2014

While out metal detecting an old burned down house . Me and a buddy were searching around ,I decided to go right to this tree and detect underneath ,after a minutes or scanning around happen on a signal in the eighties 86 ,88 and strong sound , The DFX has found something good I am thinking to myself maybe an old can or ? Whipped out the Lesche digger and carved out a horseshoe in the soil , careful not to dig into it , so i dug around the object which turned out to be a buckle laying face down , Brass and heavy says Burlington Northern for the railroad that runs through which is now the BNSF stands for Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad a date of 1976 on the back revealing it had been there a good while ,THanks for making the DFX it has proven way more than its worth , with a whites detector anybody is a pro !
