   Dear White's Electronics,

I got my Coinmaster Pro 2 months ago. It took a while to get used to it. I have found many wheat pennies and clad the first month, only in the last few weeks I have found 4 rings. The last two weeks has been my best, I have found 1 Barber dime, 3 silver Roosevelt dimes, 1 silver quarter and a 1935 Walking Liberty Half dollar.

As far as the main story, I was searching a backyard that I had gotten permission to hunt. The woman who lived there passed away and I decided to ask her son to have permission. I was finding some relics and a few wheat pennies as usual. When I came across a weird signal and decided to dig.

About 3 inches down I pulled out a bracelet that was made from 3 pence coins dated from 1891-1917 the center design was an emblem from the U.S. Army Air Corp. The next week when the son was at the house cleaning it out, I asked him if his father was in the service with the Air Corp. He looked at me with surprise and wondered how I knew.

I told him and his wife what I had found and that I wanted them to have it back. That really surprised them! As I stood talking to them for a few minutes I noticed a neat trolley bell on the wall. I made a comment about liking it. So after work that day I took the bracelet to them and they were happy to know that it was something the father had made for his wife while stationed in England as a communications officer. When I got ready to leave the man gave me the trolley bell in trade!
