Metal Detector Used: Spectra Series (800-0319)

     Dear White's,

I cannot thank you enough for making such fine metal detectors. I own 3 models, and XLT, DFX and Spectra V3. I use them all on different occasions, but prefer the V3.

My wife has been bugging me to cash in the clad quarters that I have found since I started metal detecting at the end of March 2008 (23 months ago). So, I loaded them up today and took them to the bank, but not before taking a picture.

Much to my surprise when I got to the bank and the counting was done I had found $715.25 or 2861 quarters and that's just the quarters. I still have the dimes, nickels and pennies to cash in, but not until the jugs that I store them in are full.

Needless to say, the old question "Does a metal detector ever pay for itself?" Well in my opinion the answer is YES. It's not necessarily the amount of money, jewelry and artifacts that I have found, but it's the enjoyment of the hunt and the friends that I have made with this hobby in the last 23 months.

Again I want to thank White's for their excellent metal detectors and the after sales service that they provide. It's too bad that more companies do not provide the goods and services that White's does.

Thanks,

Randy (OR)
