My MXT's Best Find Ever

Excited about a civil war field hunt with my White’s MXT. Sunday I gained permission to hunt this field in Oklahoma. While sniffing an iron trail I landed this rare key date 1843-O sitting liberty dime worth around $1500-$3100. This coin was six inches deep and iron all around it. The hint of old silver gave me goose bumps and I will always remember this amazing hunt. Thanks White’s for such an excellent machine!
