White's Electronics,

I have to share this story with you. Jim from Green County New York dropped into my shop so I could evaluate some of his finds and possible upgrade his old White’s Quantum XT. He made all these finds in one cellar hole. He did his homework and knew this site was an early cabin site. He found 25 colonial coins, 10 buckles, 4 bells, 6 buttons and a bunch of hand forged colonial tools.

I told him the 1794 and 1797 Large cents were worth 6 thousand and the other artifacts were worth another 4 thousand. It is simply the best cellar hole find that I have ever seen in many years. This find will make it very easy for him to upgrade his detector.
