Dear White's,

I've been swinging White's metal detectors for 3 years. I used to have a White's Eagle 2 SL. It was a great machine, and found me a lot of old coins, but it was over 20 years old, and heavy. This spring I decided to upgrade to a more modern and much more newer detector, the White's MXT. Don't let its small looks fool you, it’s a real deep seeker and has a very accurate VDI.

Once I got it out of the box, I decided I wasn't going to even waste my time in a park with this, I was going to an old house and see what it could do. The house I went to dated back to the 20s. It was very hard to find the owner of the house, since they lived out of the country. Thankfully after a half hour of research, and a phone call, I got the go ahead. I spent over 4 hours at this place.

There was a lot of ground to cover. Not only was there an old house, but 5 outbuildings dating back to the same time as the house. It was very cold outside, but I braved the elements knowing I could probably turn up a few old coins. When I left, my pocket had a lump of old coins in it. I had found 3 Mercury dimes, a silver Roosevelt dime, a Standing Liberty Quarter (one of my 1st) a 1906 V Nickel, a pair of buffalo nickels, and several wheat pennies, some of them going back to the 10s.

Of course this is only one hunt, I plan on doing plenty of old houses this year, and with the money I have saved, and the more old coins I find, I might purchase a White's V3i. I have used other brands of detectors over the years, but White's has always kept me coming back. I can say without a doubt they make some of the best detectors out there.
