Metal Detector Used: Spectra Series (800-0284-1)


April 2nd, 2014

I received my Whites DFX metal detector on April 9, 2010 and began my detecting hobby the following day. Since then I have recorded every time and place I went detecting and every item I have found. As of 12-31-2013 my coin count was 14,115. 17 were silver, 16 were from foreign countries. The face value of the coins was $1094.73 I have found four gold rings, one with a diamond, 32 sterling silver rings, silver necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Dozens of costume rings and other jewelry. 65 badges and tokens, six knives, eight watches, 30 hot wheel cars and a drawer full of miscellaneous items. Last year I was called by a lady who had lost her wedding ring. Her husband was in a rest home and their rings had been soldered together and she wore them. I found them in just a few minutes with my DFX. I told her my fee was a hug, she almost broke my ribs. At the age of seventy-five I have found metal detecting to be a most rewarding hobby and go out at every opportunity. I would never travel anywhere without my Whites DFX.
