Dear White's,

The following pictures are from a hunt this week that turned up some surprising results. I was hoping to find some Civil War relics, but instead, found two Nazi medals and a Chevrolet Pike’s Peak medallion in the yard of a church parsonage. They were all within a 10–12 foot radius. While they are not of any great monetary value, I find them very interesting and have learned a little more about history. I plan to check with the church and neighbors in hopes of determining who the owner was that apparently just threw them out in the yard.

One of the things I really enjoy about this hobby is not just finding stuff, but learning about what I find and sharing that with my friends. I find that many people who have never done any metal detecting are very intrigued and interested in what I dig up. One friend refers to me as the "underground clean-up specialist", but he enjoys seeing anything of historical interest.

I use the DFX 300 with the D2 coil. Thanks for a great detector.

Best regards,
Buddy (VA)
