December 1st, 2013

In april I had the most amazing day ever using my White's XLT e-series. Over the years I have dug some amazing things with my various white's machines. I will forever be a loyal user! We had permission to hunt a vacant Colonial home. My buddy had found a GW button here the week before & invited me to come along this trip. He showed me the area about where he found his. I proceeded to head in that vicinity and start swinging up into the wood line I got a nice signal. I dug down an inch and was holding a large button. I flipped it over and saw the eagle! I stood up swung again.. same signal, pinpointed.. another one! Repeated the process and BAM a 3rd one! Thinking they came in sets of 4 that this was it. Halfway across the yard got a nice signal in the same VDI range down 5 inches, dug the plug and Oh My God! a 4th! I had to pinch myself as I was on cloud 9. We decided to hit a nearby cellar hole deep in the woods later that day. We got a few good targets, then I got a nice button reading at 6 inches. I dug down and saw a large colonial coat button with silver gilting still on it. I flipped it over and there is a Eagle staring at me! I sat down and had to really let this sink in. Five 1789 George Washington Inaugural Buttons all dug in the same day at 2 different locations. What are the odds seriously?
