Dear White's,

I wanted to write and tell you how happy I am with the new White's D2 10" DD coil. The extra depth and separation it provides me while detecting my old spots is amazing. Recently while trying out a new area with it I came across a very unique find. I dug a button of The 32nd (Cornwall) Regiment of Foot. It is a British military button dating back to the 1800's. What is so interesting is that this unit was never in America. So how this button made its way to a hill side in Maryland is a great mystery and one of the reasons I love this hobby. Thanks Whites for making such great equipment to allow me to make such great finds!
