Dear White's,

I was recently searching a known Civil War camp. Sherman's Army stayed here on their way from Shiloh to Corinth. This site has been hunted out for years. I have had several people tell me there is no need even hunting in there because it was picked clean years ago. My detecting buddy and I headed out to this site with land owner permission and started our day. I have hunted this site before with a Fisher but I have recently purchased a White's MXT.

I started out with my first good signal of the day digging a Sharps Carbine. This bullet was about 8 inches down. I continued hunting and had great luck digging another Carbine and a couple of three ringers. The three ringers were next to a fence and I was picking up the fence but also getting that VDI number in the 50's which tells me there is a bullet down there. Lastly I dug my first Eagle I coat button. The face was flat but what a cool color on that button. The VDI number came up just as is should and told me it was a button. White's has made one of the best detectors I have ever used. Thank you White's for building such a great machine. I am looking forward to digging up more relics off that hunted out site.
