I am writing this unusual story about a fantastic company and some of the things I found with their products, the Coinmaster GT. Living in Florida I have many opportunities to go metal detecting whether inland or on the beaches. This past weekend I decided to go metal detecting on the Halifax River, [our intercostal waterway] at the mouth of the river where it goes in to the ocean. While metal detecting I was finding a lot of coins and costume jewelry and even a cell phone, this was all found in just over knee-deep salt water. This is where it all gets very interesting, still in just over knee-deep water concentrating on metal detecting and not paying attention to my surroundings. I kept seeing my friends waving, pointing and shouting, so I waved back, not realizing my immediate danger that I was in. Coming from deeper water, a shark [what we determined later to be a Bull Shark by the shape of it] grabbed a hold of my metal detector shaft and pulled it out of my hand. I can honestly say, my metal detector possibly saved my life. How many people can say, not only will a White’s Metal Detector find you riches, but could also possibly save your life while metal detecting! Though I no longer have a metal detector because of this, I hope to purchase another one, at least by November or December, and of course it will be another White’s Coinmaster GT.
