Dear White's Electronics,

Stephen S. is a famous artist who owns a 1730’s estate with an old fort in upstate New York. He purchased a White’s detector 15 years ago from me. He used the detector to unwind between projects and found lots of great revolutionary items. He called me this week and told me he thought his ground was hunted out.

I told him that wasn’t possible and I would go down with a couple VX3’s and check it out. I went to the site and we had so many targets we got the neighbor to help us dig. In one day we dug at least 100 targets which included colonial coins and revolutionary war artifacts. Some of the coins were extremely rare. Needless to say that when I left I had to leave a VX3 with Stephen, he tells me I can come down anytime. I asked him is tomorrow too soon. Check out the collection pictures of artifacts that came from this single site.
