Location: New York

Metal Detector Used: Spectra Series (800-0329-HP)

White's Electronics,

Austin is a White's V3i user from Catskill, NY. He started metal detecting a few years ago. He has recovered cannon balls, colonial coins and artifacts from old foundations in his area. His collection is outstanding.

Last week he recovered a very rare 1840's Henry Clay presidential campaign metal. This metal has a value of approximately $1,000. I have detected with Austin many times and consider him an expert with his detector. What's really amazing about Austin is that he is only 13 years old.

Thanks White's,

Bob
