Item Found: Rare

Location: North Carolina

Metal Detector Used: Other (800-0300)


October 1st, 2009

Dear White’s,

Having metal detected for over 20 years I just had to pass this once in a lifetime find I made here in North Carolina. It is a 220 year old George Washington Inaugural Button Linked States variety. I found it at an old homestead about five inches deep with my White's XLT.

My buddy was hunting beside me with his Minelab E-trek. He keeps wanting me to "upgrade" and buy one of them. I nicely tell him I am totally satisfied with White’s and have been for years.

15 years ago I "hooked" my brother on metal detecting and he is quite the metal detectorists in his own right. His name is Daniel and lives in Ticonderoga, NY. He has been a metal detector tester for years for you.

I have hunted overseas in three countries and have hunted almost exclusively now for Revolutionary War and Civil War artifacts with much success. I am also an accomplished writer having 10 books published as of this year.

Thanks again,

C.J. B.
