Hi White's,

I have been hunting with my White's MXT for 3-years now and it has more than paid for itself many times over. This White's machine is awesome on coins and jewelry. I recently used the White's MXT at a local football-baseball field which is owned by the city school system.

I had permission to hunt this site as they were getting ready to remove the grass and 8-inches of top-soil for installation of artificial turf grass. I hunted the grassy area for two weeks before the crew came in and started excavating. I ran my White's MXT at 9 on gain and 2 on disc with just a slight audible from the threshold. The targets were from 2-5 inches deep with different VDI numbers.

I am including pictures of the area before the grass was removed, the removing of some grass and the actual dozer work. My finds for this excursion was 471 quarters, 385 dimes, 203 nickels and 530 pennies, along with six silver rings, two gold plated rings, two 10kt gold rings and a 14kt gold ring. I used the White's Eclipse shooter 4x6 and an Eclipse 5.3 6x6 search coil along with the 9.5 stock coil. Thank You White's for this great machine it does an outstanding job in finding Buried Treasures.
