Metal Detector Used: Other (800-0300)


March 19th, 2008

Dear Whites Metal Detectors,

Well with the New Year here there are always thoughts of buying a new detector and with so many new ones on the market it’s a hard decision. So before that happens a lot of research will have to be done and in the mean time I'll continue to use my trusty XLT.

These recent coins came out of a cornfield that borders a stream and an old roadbed. There may have been a colonial house site there at one time. The first signal was the small holed reale and then the King Georges. Although the holed reale is really worn it’s still a nice find to me.

The really nice Phillip V cut piece came on another evening at the same cornfield. It was just a little higher up in the field on a slight rise. The flat button was found in the same row. The fact that the old XLT keeps producing for me tells me that White’s is a quality built product and learning ones machine is just as valuable as new technology.

Regards,

Brian W. I

Charles Town, WV
