Hi White's,

I wanted to tell White's about two great hunters, Brain and Jason. Brain started metal detecting 15 years ago in upstate New York when he dropped into my shop & picked up and XLT. With a little research he went out & recovered a 1790 Albany Church penny. This is the single rarest token know with a book value of 75K.

Brain bumped into Jason a few years later while hunting abandoned resorts in the Catskill Mountains. Jason was not having much luck using a lesser know detector. Brain took him under his wing, taught him a few tips and let him use his XLT. Brain is currently using the Spectra V3.

They joined up as a detecting team and went on to recover some great treasures. They discovered the Greenville Cache which was over 100 pounds of gold, silver coins and jewelry from unknown early fairgrounds.

Most of the coins were high grade silver dollars including a super 1795 flowing hair. They also recovered a great many rare revolutionary war & civil war artifacts, which are too numerous to mention. I think Brain and Jason represent the best of the best in metal detecting.
