September 1st, 2010
Dear White's Electronics,

On the morning of March 31st (Memorial Day) I woke up and decided to get a little digging in. So I called my digging buddy up and we decided to go to an old faithful spot I have. I have dug a lot of relics at the spot although they are getting fewer and fewer.

When we arrived I decided to hit all the trashy spots first, like beside the road and down the driveway. I was using my MXT with the 950 Eclipse coil. Second good signal of the day read 83/84 so I carefully dug a plug. Still in the hole, so I carefully continued to dig this sweet tone until I was about 6 inches deep. Seen the green patina, reached in the hole, and flipped over my first sword belt plate! There is a hand stamped number on the back # 762.
