Metal Detector Used: M-Series (800-0326)


July 1st, 2013

Dear White's,

I wanted a metal detector for years, then in 2009 I received one for Christmas, I couldn’t wait to go digging even with the ground frozen here in Virginia (ha-ha)... But I had to wait, early that Spring I went to a local area known for Civil movement, headed out with my new MXT Pro and pinpointer and dug a U.S. Sharps bullet on my first hunt! Man I was hooked!

Late in my first year hunting I dug 4 North Carolina State Seal buttons along with a Confederate block I with the shank still on it, then 2 more block I buttons. I dropped any other thoughts of any other hobby. I go out almost every weekend, the MXT Pro with D2 coil works great here in Virginia.

After almost 4 years of digging I have a nice small collection of over 400 bullets, 10 confederate buttons, 3 U.S. box plates, flat buttons, several Yankee eagle buttons and lots of other coins and Civil War stuff. The prize of its gilt… Thanks for a great machine the White’s MXT Pro allows me to go and always come home with a cool couple finds every time I go.

Thanks again for the top notch machine never a disappointing trip.

Thomas
