White’s Metal detectors,

I am 43 years old and over the years I’ve had many different hobbies. It seems that no matter how many fun things I find myself dabbling in and I always find myself going back time after time to the thing I enjoy the most… Metal detecting.

Whether it is with friends or family or just by myself I really like finding interesting things buried just under the surface. Valuable jewelry, relics, and especially old coins satisfies the pirate in me. The lure of treasure is strong, my White’s detector is my sword and my utility belt and pouch is my scabbard.

I have found a lot of old coins with my White’s detector. Here is a sample, the smallest and largest coin I have ever found a month apart from each other. 1891 Morgan Dollar and 1854 three cent piece, each were found in 2006 but the memory of each find will be with me forever as I dream of more to come.

Sincerely yours,

Chris A.
