Found 4 1800's Coins with Week Old MXT!

Hi my name is Shawn and I would like to tell you about my finds on my second day out with my new MXT. I met up on March 30th with 2 friends who use the MXT detectors as well. What a day we all had. I found my first silver coin an 1895 O Barker Half Dollar and in the same hole my second silver an 1857 Seated quarter. I also found an 1847 Braided Hair Cent. My friends also found some colonial buckles and buttons. The MXT worked great and is very user friendly, I just wanted to say thank you and here are some of my finds.

3 days after finding the 2 silvers and braided hair one cent I found an 1834 Coronet Head cent. that’s 4 coins in the 1800’s on an MXT that I have had for a week!
