White's Electronics,

Well, I just finished my first year of treasure hunting. I moved to central Florida from Ohio in July of 2007. I joined the “Imperial Treasure Hunters Club” to learn all I could about hunting. Most of the members have been hunting for 20 odd years. I am 66, I golf, fish and play cards with the boys, but I get my greatest satisfaction when I put on the head phones, turn on my machine and become one. Forgetting all the problems of the world and just listening for the beep.

When it says there is something in the ground and how deep it is, it is usually right. With my probe and Bullseye, I can’t miss. It isn’t just the coins that you find; it’s what you uncover once you get a sound. The DFX in my estimation is the best machine to use. We promote White’s products at our meetings. We have on display a White’s metal detector Coinmaster 6000/Di Series 3 circa 1986. The best single month I had was $120.38. Total coins for the year were 11,428 and the total dollar amount for the year was $903.17.

I have found 26 rings, 13 one dollar coins, 38 toy cars and lots of jewelry type items. I have started a new year and hope to surpass all of my last year totals.

Happy Hunting,

Bob W.
