Dear White’s Electronics,

I wanted to pass along another excellent find from my DFX. I detected a yard at a house built in 1774 and found my oldest coin to date. I was detecting for about an hour finding pre 1900's Indian heads and a few wheat backs and then got a solid signal VDI 85-88(quarter) at about 5.5'. When I dug the plug up there was an 1817 large cent in perfect shape in the hole. I also found a military insignia dated to around 1896 linked to a military quarter master. I still have the side and back yard to detect and will definitely be sending along more finds. Thanks for such an awesome detector. The best decision I have ever put my money into.

Jim

In PA.
