White's Electronics

I have an outstanding announcement. My brother and I have been metal detecting with White’s detectors for over 8 years and never have I seen a platinum ring, despite all my best efforts and countless books that I have read on the subject. THE JACKPOT 10 grams of loveliness wrapped in two 18k strands of gold rope that completes a perfect circle after many moons of finding loose pocket change everywhere.

Everything was in perfect alignment, it was early morning, and the field at the high school was vacant and ready. A hawk sitting high on the lights signaling with its shrilly whistle, clouds covered the sky, the sun rays diluted and beckoning anyone to try his or her luck on the infamous dirt roulette wheel and BAM!

My first platinum ring! A Gellin Adaci original inscribed 750k platinum. The bad boy was hooked with the Coin and Jewelry program coming in at +28 +31 on the display, at 2 inches deep on the sideline in dry soil with the world famous DFX. Thanks to all that searching diligently and patiently, the rewards are endless. I heart White’s Metal Detectors!
