Metal Detector Used: M-Series (800-0308)
My name is Rick, I live in Massachusetts.
I've been a Whites user for four years now, and these are my top ten favorite finds to date.
The MXT with the 6x10 coil is my machine of choice. I've seen what the other companies had to offer, and this is THE machine for me! I just can't praise it enough. Once you know it, it becomes a very reliable friend.
The ring is my favorite of all my ring finds to date. It was under a 1888 seated dime, and has inlaid turquoise set into a eagle design.
The pair of two reale coins were found less than two miles apart. Both less than three inches, and read 83 quarter. Both times I was expecting a large silver ring, or something similar, so you can imagine my surprise!
The pocket watch is sterling, and was my first watch find of any type! I've been toying with the idea of having it restored for over three years now.
There's a sterling colonial era knee buckle. And two colonial sterling shoe buckles. These are my most INTENSE finds to date! All three are initialed. And they are the highlight of my detecting finds so far!
Also two sterling pocketknives. I just love these two pieces!
I'm a firm believer of digging a LOT! I'd about guarantee I've dug a thousand pounds of trash over the years. But getting larger items like the knives, and buckles, makes any signal a possible winner!
I'm lucky to live in an area with such history. And very lucky to be a Whites user, I have been from the beginning, and always will be!
Thanks very much for making the best machines available!
