Dear White’s,

Hello my name is Kevin, for the past two weeks my dad and I have been metal detecting a local park in New Jersey. I use a BeachHunter ID and my dad uses a Classic IDX.

I was surprised to see that the BeachHunter ID was doing very well at the parks for a beach model, but White’s always makes quality machines. Besides the priceless father and son time we have found many more treasures. We found seven silver quarters including our first barber quarter, it was a 1904. We also found fifteen silver dimes including three barbers, two buffalo nickels, a V nickel, four Indian head pennies, and our first “Copper”; it was a 1787 New Jersey coin. Besides all the coins we also found some nice rings. This included a 1971 class ring, a sterling Boy Scout ring, two other silver coins, and an old hand made silver ring with a small heart on the top of it.

I’m glad to be able to share this time metal detecting with my dad. So I would like to say “thank you” to White’s who made it possible.

Sincerely,

Kevin of NJ
