Item Found: Relic

Location: Northeast

Metal Detector Used: M-Series (NONE)


February 1st, 2014

I've been a dedicated White's user for over 40 years now, and have made some great finds through the years. I hunt mostly old farm fields and cellar holes hoping to make some colonial era finds.

One of the sites I have been searching for the last few years is an old field that has been farmed for over 300 years. I've found some nice relics there, including some old buttons, musket balls, and buckles. I've also found some nice coins.

I found my oldest coin this year which was a 1723 Hibernia half penny. I thought that it would be my best find for the year, but detecting the same area the following weekend, I got a nice solid signal and when I dug the plug, I couldn't believe what was laying there looking at me. It was an 1830 caped bust dime!!

I had never found one of these coins before, and this one is in beautiful condition! We're snowed in now, but I can't wait till Spring when I can dust off my old faithful DFX, and start searching the fields and woods again. Thank you White's for making such a great product. They are the best!
