Dear White’s Electronics:

Hello my name is Sarah. I wanted to let you know of some recent finds that I have made over the last two days and I wanted to give a great big diamond thanks to White’s Electronics and the DFX!!!

When I met my husband he owned a DFX and metal detected all the time. Some people golf, bowl, and well he looks for lost treasure. I can’t say that I haven’t benefited from some of his finds. I have more rings then I could ever hope to wear. He started bringing home some Gold and I took a little more interest in what he was up to.

Well I decided to give metal detecting a shot this year and purchased a DFX. I started reading the manual and looking at different books on how to use this detector and I can’t believe how simple it is to use.

We were in a park and we were coming up empty. I love the Block edit feature that the DFX has it allows me to hunt in very trashy conditions without pulling lots of trash. It just does what other detectors can’t do it really gets the good stuff. I set the detector up and not five feet away I noticed something half in the ground and half out. I couldn’t tell what it was but after running over it with DFX I knew I had something good. I pulled out a 10k White Gold ear ring with 169 diamonds. My husband just shook his head LOL.

I figure with Gold prices on the rise I would start collecting the gold to sell and keep the diamonds for something special after all they are a girl’s best friend.

We talked about the park we were hunting and if this gold and all these diamonds were just beneath the surface we asked ourselves what really might be there. We went back the next day and not more than five minutes later my husband pulled a 14k white gold neck chain weighing in at 24.6 grams. The gold is starting to add up for us. To end the story I started walking to the adult ball field thinking my husband got it all and stopped myself and said wait a minute there may be more gold here and continued hunting with him.

The area has some history to it and some old house’s made way to these ball parks. I got a deep signal for a half dollar and started thinking silver. What I found was much better I pulled a Green River Whiskey Token from 1935. I thought it was really neat to be able to put this coin together with a web page for a display. The Green River Company sold these tokens to magicians to use in their act as a means of gaining publicity for the company. It’s been a good couple of days and wanted to say thanks for making the world’s best detector and one great hobby.
