Metal Detector Used: Other (800-0284-LSP)


September 1st, 2009

Hi White’s,

Just wanted to tell you I’ve been metal detecting 25 plus years. I have never owed any other brand of detector but a White’s. I have 5 White's machines now as I write this letter. a DFX, Silver Eagle, Eagle Spectrum, Surfmaster PI & a BeachHunter300.

My latest discovery was found a few weeks ago at an old cellar hole. It’s a revolutionary war continental army USA pewter button.

I was really excited holding this fully intact button in my hand, knowing the history behind a find like this!

White's is # 1 in my book and I will never own any other brand of detector. Ever!

Here are pictures of my USA button along with a few other recent cellar hole finds.

Sincerely,

Dave
