White’s Electronics,

I would like to share some of my better finds I have made in 2008 with my MXT. The first is a heavy two tone gold man's wedding band with 3 diamonds in it. I found this ring while on vacation at the shore. Gold was tough to come by at the beach I was at, but my MXT was able to find me this great ring.

As a side note, the day before I found this ring, I made a find I would rather not have. As I was detecting, I stepped on a soup can lid while in my bare feet. It almost cut the tip of my little toe off. A trip to the ER was in store for me that day. I guess sometimes it takes blood and sweat to make a great find.

The second find is a huge silver necklace that I found at a local park near where I live. The necklace is 24 inches long, 7/16 inches wide and weighs over a quarter pound. As I was pulling it out of the ground, it just kept coming and coming. It was so big that at first I thought I may have found a dog collar. It is by far my biggest necklace I have found.

The final find turned out be my oldest coin to date. I was again hunting a local park, when I received a solid hit in the coin range. Upon recovering the target, I thought it was just a nondescript metal disc. Then looking at it more closely, I saw a faint outline of a lady sitting. I thought "it can't be". That is when I saw the date: 1838. I had found my first Seated Liberty coin and not just that, it was a Half Dime. The coin was severely worn, but it was definitely distinguishable as a Seated Liberty. That is one find I thought I would never make. Then again, with a great machine like the MXT, you just never know.

Thank you,

Bill W.
