Hi,

I am writing to thank the makers of the MXT and for making the best detector on the market today! I was out relic hunting in early February in McNairy County, TN when I got the best signal on my MXT that I have ever got.

I was hunting on the travel and retreat route of the Union and Confederate before, during and after the battle of Shiloh. I had been digging bullets between rain showers when I got a reading on my MXT. It read in the 90’s, I thought “wow, what could that be?”

I began to dig as the rain came down, I went on and dug the target and it turned out to be an 1855 Type 2 gold dollar. Wow! What a find! I lay on the ground as the rain began to pour thinking what a wonderful day I will never forget.

Thanks White’s for making the best machine on earth!

Mark
