To the greatest company in the world,

Let me start off by saying that your machines are Second to no other, and your support is hands down the best in this market and any other. If the other company's could take a model of your company and treat their customers as you do, America would start getting back to its roots, and the job markets would again grow.

My addiction all started 20 plus years ago with second hand hand-me-down White’s machine, I have never bought a NEW machine until 2-2011 and it was the ULTIMATE V3i. With a little frustration and a whole lot of want my journey began. Let me say that in the last 12-14 months I also picked up a Minelab and it did not take me long to get rid of it.

One day I looked up and my equipment had grown from 1 V3i to 3, one for me one for my son and an extra back up. Some might look at this as being extreme I look at it as being prepared. I have personally aided in the sale of 7 other machine and countless accessories. I am very passionate about this hobby and my equipment. It has taken roughly a year for me to know my machine.

My hunting has went from SLOW to GREAT, it all started 02-21-2012 with a call to Mary Hudson. Let’s also say that here in this part of Oklahoma Silver has always been few and far between.10 to 20 year max with any machine that I have ever had. When I talked to Mrs. Mary we concluded that my 10DD was faulty. It all started when I opened my door on 02-23-2012 and found my new coil sitting on my doorstep. I was excited to say the least. I put it all together and off I went and the next 3 hunts were amazing! Here is a list of my finds.

1896 O Barbra Half Dollar

1892 S Barbra Quarter

1917 Standing Liberty Quarter

1942 D Double Die Struck Washington

1944 Washington

1917 Mercury Dime

1920 D Mercury Dime

1942 S Mercury Dime

And a solid gold ring That is old and Unique

Thank you White’s for Still Believing in AMERICA and to Mrs. Hudson!

Justin (OK)
