White's Electronics

I have been detecting for about 10 years. I have used several brand detectors over that time period. This year I finally purchased my first White's unit. I have wanted to try out a Classic series machine for a while, since I have always heard how solid and reliable they are.

So far this hunting season I have pulled 3 silver coins from areas that I have hunted before. The first 2 coins were dimes a 1926 Mercury and a 1947 Roosevelt. I was very pleased with those finds so early into my season. I was able to top those when I hunted a local baseball field the other day.

I had some time after work to swing over to do some detecting. I was finding some clad coins right off the bat at this field. 30 minutes into the hunt I dug down after a solid signal. I pinpointed up a rusty nail. Not to be deterred I scanned my hole again. Still a nice solid signal. Down about 6 inches popped out an 1854 Seated Liberty half in fantastic condition! I had to sit down right there for a while to let myself calm down.

Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would pull one of those out of the hole, or have it be in such great condition. Needless to say I do not think I will ever part with my Classic machine. It definitely speaks a language I can understand. Thanks for making a great product.
