Metal Detector Used: M-Series (800-0326)


February 1st, 2012

White's Electronics,

Tom from upstate New York dropped in my shop 20 years ago and picked up a White’s XLT. I have hunted with him a number of times over the years and always thought he did well. I hunted with him the early part of this year and told him it was time for him to move to the next generation of White’s Metal Detectors.

He said money was a little tight. I told him to bring into the shop some of his treasures to see if his hobby could pay for the upgrade. He brought in a portion of his collection which consisted of Revolutionary war and Civil War collectables, colonial coins and a great amount of early silver coins.

I estimated the collection to be near $30,000. It took only 3 coins to pay for his new White’s VX3. He and his wife are very happy.

Submitted for Tom
