I Found My First Trade Token with My MXT
I just got my new White’ MXT and it is easy to use and a great metal detector! I went to a local spot where I have detected before the spot has a lot of history dating back to the Indians. I have found some old wheat pennies dating back to the 1920s or so and some other cool old items as well. I plan on going back there more as there is about 200 acres or more of woods and fields to metal detect!
I was detecting in what was an old farm field the farm dates back to the early 1900s. As I was walking along I got a good solid hit on my MXT and when I dug down about 7-8 inches I saw what appeared to be some sort of token after I cleaned it up there was my first trade token ever!!
It says “good for 5 cents A.H. in trade” and has an elephant on the front side I still have not identified the token. This was found in Michigan.
