MXT Superior Detector!

I purchased your MXT detector a few years ago. I wanted to tell you I really enjoy the equipment, to date I have found a large amount of coins by going over areas that other people have hunted.

My best finds are a shell case from a 41 Cal. Rim fire. I found it 6 or 7 miles out in the dessert on a ridge. I also found an old sewing thimble from an old homestead. My best find is two bullets stuck together point to point. They are both copper packed .357 in size, with a weight of 228 grams for both. This leads me to think they are both ammo, viewing them under a microscope you can see the wax lubricant coating on the bullet has extracted along the point of impact.

I don’t know the cause of this impact, the bullets were found on the surface of the ground, and in very good condition. Enclosed you will find a picture of the bullets.

I have been informed by Edward Meyer of exhibits for Ripley’s Believe it or Not that this will be included in the newsletter and the next edition of the book! I am very glad I chose White’s MXT, I can’t envision a detector being better. This find more than pays for the MXT, thanks again!
