White's Electronics,

December 24th 2011- I just got my MXT PRO in early November, I was dying to get out. It was cold but no snow on the ground yet, so I went to a friend’s house as he live close to an old school. I figured I would search his front lawn along the sidewalk, for coins. I dint find one coin, so I went to his backyard to hunt. I wasn’t there more than a minute, when I had an overload signal.

My MXT Pro said 4 inches, so I started digging and out came a round steel ball. About six inches away another signal, this time in relic mode it said iron, so I dug up 2 grape shot balls. I’ve since been to our local museum, and they said there was a lot of 1812 fights going on in our town. They have many artifacts from that era including cannon balls, powder flask, lead bullets, buttons, etc.
