My dear Whites Electronics...

Though I've dug some awesome relics in my time, I wanted to share a couple pictures to show that the DFX can and will find the deep stuff that we all drool over (if you're a coin hunter, that is)... the coins.

Here's some of my collection of favorite dug coins to-date. The first picture is of my reales... a 1791 8-reale (which almost ended up in the trash, 'cause I thought it was a washer) which I wear around my neck every time I swing now (being, it has 2 holes in it), 2 1-reales (a 1785 and an 1807), and 3 half reales (a 1772, a 1781, and a 1789).

The second picture is of some of my other "keepers" which includes:

1 silver dollar (1972) 1 Kennedy half (1978) 1 Franklin half (1958) 6 Barber quarters 1 standing Liberty quarter N/D 5 silver Washington quarters 2 silver Canadian quarters 1 capped bust dime (1831) 3 seated dimes (1876, 1885 \& 1889) 13 Barber dimes 28 Mercury dimes 8 silver Roosevelt dimes 2 silver Canadian dimes (1893 \& 1909) 1 capped bust nickel (1831) 14 buffAlo nickels 2 Canadian nickels (1883 \& 1901) 1, 3 cent piece (1852) 1, 2 cent piece (1864) 1, English 2 Pence 15 large cents 2 Mass. coppers (1788 \& 1720) 1/2 Conn. copper N/D 2 flying eagle cents too many indian head cents to display way too many wheat cents to display 2 Liberty cap half cents 15 foregin coins (of various denominations) and 25 various token coins

I know that this will show some inspiration for future detectorists \& hobbyists alike. Heck, it's gotta! :-)

I wish everyone, everywhere... happy hunting!

Joe A.
