White's Electronics,

Hello! Friday (February 24th) I had the pleasure of joining a couple of good folks out in western NJ. We were about an hour into the hunt when I got a strong quarter signal with my MXT 300. My buddy comes over with his V3i and confirms the signal. I dug the plug and there, about 2 inches down, was a large and thick copper coin.

After the hunt was through and a little more dirt removal, it was discovered that I had unearthed a 1793 Flowing Hair Large Cent with the 'One Hundred for a Dollar' stamped on the edge. Although the coin's date is unreadable, the other details show that it is indeed a 1793 flowing Hair. With this machine, I have also found a variety of early American buttons. Thanks for making such great products!
