Dear White’s,

I have been metal detecting for about 5 years now with my best friend Dan. We wanted to share some of the colonial buckles I have found, they were all about 9 inches deep. It just amazes me that these relics keep popping up.

The DFX is just outstanding and durable; I might add these sites we have been to have surely been hunted before, judging from past dig holes that are still there. We go in snow, rain, you name it I’ve been soaked, frozen, stung by bees and horse flies. I guess you could say my friend Dan and I are diehards, but love it. Some of the best finds come when you least expect it, detecting has just become part of my life, and I am very grateful for that.

Thanks White’s,

Chris from CT.
