Dear White's,

Summer time in Mississippi gets hot and why my brother and I decided to go metal detecting on one of the hottest days of the summer is beyond reason. But sometimes, having a passion for something goes beyond reason.

As both of us stepped foot on the property where we received permission to hunt in Booneville, MS, eagerness set in as I had found a civil war relic on the same property several years prior. As we hunted the property, the heat was sucking the energy out of both of us, yet, we kept going. I eagerly wanted to find an old coin as my younger brother likes to remind me that he has found the oldest coin to date. As the heat began to take its toll, my brother walked back to the car to retrieve some water.

I continued to hunt and as he walked back, my White's MXT got a hit and the display screen revealed a VDI reading of 80 and 7-inches down. I changed angles, went over the spot and again the display read VDI 80. As my brother returned, I continued to scan the spot as to make sure my brother could see and hear what was happening. The hole was dug and both of us knelt down to see what the hole would produce. As I picked up a clump of dirt, there sticking out was a small round silver disc. I brushed the dirt away, which revealed an 1839 Seated Liberty dime. The bragging rights once proudly held by my brother, now belong to me.

Thanks White's for a great detector. The brotherly rivalry continues.
