Dear White's,

My son and I went out in a local forest yesterday and I found a fantastic cellar hole. We got right to work detecting and in the corner, I got a strong signal. I dug about 6" and there it was! An 1874 Seated Liberty dime! I was so excited............. OK, OK....... I lied! My son was the one who found the cellar hole and he also found the dime..... But he was using my backup machine..... Does that count for anything for me? After he found it, I dropped my fat a__ into the hole and found a bunch of cut old nails. Not silver but interesting, none the less! He found the dime with a White’s Coinmaster.
