Dear White's,

I have been metal detecting since I was 13 in 1994. I've always had fun doing it, but a little over a year ago I decided to upgrade to a more modern detector, but didn't want to compromise the simplicity I was used to in my other metal detector. After a lot of research, I decided to purchase a White's M6 from a local White's dealer. The learning curve was very minimal, and I was out finding things right away.

I was surprised at how deep this detector went, and it wasn't unusual for me to find coins in areas I had hunted previously with my older detector. Specifically, my silver coin count soared through the roof, and my hunting partners have taken note, and some of them have purchased White's detectors as well.

One friend of mine bought a White's XLT and has also experienced what I have- an increased number of older, deeper coins and relics. Another friend of mine bought his young son a White's Prizm 2, and on his first outing, found a silver Roosevelt dime!

Enclosed is a photo of the contents of an early coin spill I recently recovered using my White's M6. The coins were about 8 inches deep, mostly under a tangle of thick roots at the base of a huge tree. The coins consist of a 1900 Barber half dollar, 1918 mercury dime, 1883 and 1907 Indian head cents, 1907 V nickel, 1918 buffalo nickel, and some assorted early wheat cents. It was exciting pulling out coin after coin from this one hole!  One of my hunting partners filmed the entire event and we share the video all of our friends.

Thank you for making quality detectors at great prices. I will always count on White's to provide the best treasure-hunting equipment AND excellent customer service.

Joe
