White's Electronics,

Over the years I've had the good fortune to submit three stories and now I have a fourth. While vacationing at the Antler's Lodge in Creede, CO, in June of this year, the owner, Patti, learned that I was a metal detectorist and asked if I would be interested in searching for a diamond and gold pendant she had lost two years ago. Patti explained that she was attempting to feed her pet goats in a blizzard that dumped three feet of snow in the corral next to her lodge. As she leaned over to feed one of the goats it got its head entangled in her necklace and the Diamond Pendant went flying into the snow.

When spring came she bought a metal detector and searched the corral without success. In anticipation of a lengthy, difficult hunt I met Patti in the corral with my White's MXT and selected the White's 6" Eclipse DD Coil knowing that it was great in helping to find small targets. I turned on the MXT, did a brief ground balance, and in less than 60 seconds hit a target that turned out to be the missing Diamond Pendant. I was just as amazed as Patti that I had found it in such a short time. Patty then explained that the Diamond had been handed down to her by her now deceased mother and that in addition to the sentimental value. The monetary value was $5,000.00. I now have complimentary lodging the next time I'm vacationing in Creede.
