I Cannot Praise White's Detectors Enough

This is my 2nd year of owning a V3i and what a year it has been. I recently dug two great militia items and I have to share them with everybody.

At the end of August I recovered a militia eagle hat plate, well most of it. It is from 1836. On Labor Day I went off in search of my 50th silver of the year. Seeing that it was going to be my 50th I was hoping for a really good silver.

I decided to go to a house c1700 which I had searched before. The homeowners were home and I got the go ahead. I did not get my 50th silver but I dug a revolutionary way shoulder belt plate. It has the owners name in script across the front and four hooks on the reverse, missing one though. I have only owned White’s detectors and I cannot praise them enough.
