Dear White's Electronics,

Well this year is getting very interesting especially with the last nice find I made with the White’s DFX. This machine is still going strong after five years now and is still working just as well as it did when I first got her. This past August I stumbled upon a very nice old copper coin spill at a site that’s been heavily detected by others.

This is where a good reliable machine and a little thinking outside of the box will better your odds in finding the goodies, well it paid off for me again. One of the things on my dream list to find was “a colonial coin spill” well I found one at about six inches deep all laying against one another.

The coins are a 1774 Machin Mills counterfeit, a 1788 New Jersey state copper, and four U.S. 1787 Fugio pennies of various varieties, truly some coins that some detectorists only dream about. They were pretty corroded with the dark green verdigris that buried coins will get but after a little time and effort these started to clean up nice, these are some pictures of what I have done so far.

Sincerely

(Del) Dan from CT.
