I've always known that the British and Americans skirmished in the area where I live, so I decided to search my property. Would you believe two of the musket balls were found right in my own backyard, how cool is that. So once again, set the Gain to 9 and the Dual control on the Pre-set and I started to hunt. After about 20 min I got a good signal 65 67 & about 5 inches deep. I began digging and once I took out the ball of dirt, out popped the first musket ball. I went right back at it and soon after I hit another. I was totally excited, WOW, those were in the ground for over 200 years until I pulled them out of the ground. The third musket ball was found on private property with permission, close to my house. I also wanted to show some of the other cool stuff. Picked up a 1839 Large cent from a park that has some old houses on it along with an old Chub lock and vintage dental tool. I also picked up some more old coins and a heart plate, 1942 dime, 1929 nickel, 1932 nickel. OK, that's all folks, hope to bring you more great MXT finds in the near future.

The one thing I love the most about my MXT is, HOW EASY IT IS TO USE.

Sincerely,

John
