Hi White's Electronics,

I enjoy hunting with my White's MXT machine because it's so easy and fun to hunt with. I recently used the White's MXT at a local baseball field complex which is owned by the city school system. I had permission to hunt this site as I always ask before going on private or public owned property.

I was hunting along the edge of the grassy field area and got a reading of 84 within the quarter range. I used the trigger switch to find the center and depth which was around 1 inch. I begin to dig the item and to my surprise there was a bunch of coins. There were 3 quarters, 1 nickel and 3 dimes just under the grass.

I always use a small digging tool or knife at the complex so not to make large holes. I was running my White's MXT at 9 on gain and 2 on disc with just a slight audible from the threshold. I was using the White's Eclipse 5.3 search coil with the MXT switches in coins & jewelry and ground. I am including 3 pictures of the coins along with a picture of the other coins I have found this year with my MXT. All of the coins have been run through a rock tumbler with a cleaning solution. The bank frowns on dirty coins and will not accept them.

Thank You White's for this great machine. It does an outstanding job in finding buried treasures.
