Dear White's Electronics,

I was removing all the iron targets from an 1880’s farmhouse that I have been detecting with my White’s DFX. I have been detecting this farmhouse for about 5 months and it has produced numerous 1800’s coins and a lot of clad coinage also. I was using the standard relic mode with a preamp setting of 3 and running at 15 kHz only.

I was using the White’s Super 12” Coil. At the front of the house I hit a signal that was very sharp in all directions with a reading of +25 steady. The depth was reading 8”. I dug down about 7” and checked the hole with my Bullseye II pinpointer. The pinpointer did not pick it up. I dug another 2” down then researched with the pinpointer. This time the pinpointer did pick it up in the side bottom of the hole. I scooped out all the loose dirt in the bottom of the hole and felt the bullet in the dirt. It is a Civil War 3 Ring 58 Caliber Union Minie Bullet . Also found at this same location on a previous hunt with my DFX were 3 Civil War Brass Boot Toe Taps two dated 1859 and one 1861.
