  Hi White’s,

Here are some pictures of some of my finds this year with my DFX. These are the best finds I have had in one year, although I did get a Washington Inaugural button back in 2001 with my XLT. I have been a White’s user since 1974, starting with the Beachcomber, then the 5000DI bought an Eagle in 1990, won the XLT at a hunt and then got my DFX a couple of years later.

The gold ring is 10K with 12 “round” stones and 27 baguettes. The platinum ring is a size 11 that weighs .47 of an ounce. The gold Mary is 10K with seven small diamond chips in it. It weighs .86 of and ounce. This is by far my most beautiful piece to date. The two rings came from the beach, I don’t know the depth because I use the VCO and it was dark when I got it in the center and I just dug. The Mary piece was in a swimming hole that has not been used for at least 15 years and was at least six inches deep in the mud.

It was dry here until a few weeks ago, so it enabled me to hunt where you normally cannot with a land machine. I see the other multi frequency machines at the beach all the time and some of them are quite smirky with their tales of depth. These three items are pretty good smirk removers, they can get all the deep nails they want, I will take these.

Thank you for making a great machine and I would not trade mine for 100 frequencies.
