White's Electronics,

Thanks White’s for making such a great machine that can pull silver from an iron covered lawn. Today I went to my grandfather’s house in Wisscasset, Maine searching for the last few times since we sold the house. I found many things out back since its right on the river. I just purchased the White’s TDI Pro a few months ago and now I'm finding more than ever even on lawns and fields I have gridded out many a time with other machines that are not White’s.

I found this coin about 6 inches down in the soil using settings on the TDI Pro that allowed me to see through the iron nails and other junk I can't believe how great the TDI Pro is at separating the two. When I pulled it out I knew it wasn't a US dime or any US coin since it was silver and about the diameter of a nickel.

When I cleaned the coin off with some water I saw that it was a Spanish coin and that the date said 1738! I did my happy dance for a minute and realized that this was my oldest silver coin. Without the TDI Pro this coin would have been lost forever thanks again White’s for making a great machine.

Ian
