The M6 Isn't One to Underestimate

I just wanted to show you what the M6 turned up last month. My hunting buddy and I had a chance to hunt a private campground that by all appearances has not been hunted before. They two photos show two different days at the beach and playground area.

M6 Finds at a POW Camp

Over a year and a half ago a friend of mine mentioned the whereabouts of a WWII POW Camp in Michigan. He knew the land owner where he believed the camp used to be and granted us permission to hunt it. The first hunt was not as successful as I was a novice relic hunter at the time. If you gave me a coin signal under the M6, I would have it found in a jiffy, but relics were a new game for me.

Wedding Ring Lost and Returned with the M6

Just a short story to say you can trust the White’s metal detectors to work. A friend of mine for 15 yrs called and said he had lost his wedding ring that he has had for over 40 yrs. I responded by saying I will be over in a couple of days to look for it, he said I have another friend that is loaning me a detector so give me a chance to look for it.

Three Crazy Days of Silver Finds

I have had my White’s M6 for 3 1/2 years now and it has never let me down! The last weekend in July 2012 I found great amount of silver. Two finds really stand out. The first one came on a Saturday morning hunting a local school with my Son and a Friend. We had hunted this school before but it had one more surprise!

Another Happy Return by the M6

I received a panic call from a neighbor’s daughter, she lost a sterling silver angel locket given to her by her grandmother and it had immense sentimental value. Seems she was near the shore and noticed her necklace broke and the locket was gone. She gave me an area about 200 x 200 feet where she thought she may have been. Unfortunately the field had been cut after she lost it so I was overly optimistic about finding it.

M6 Finds a 1916-D Mercury Dimes

I went over to see my daughter that lives in a small town 12 miles from me, and I saw they had torn down a two story house next door to the church. They were in the process of tearing up the sidewalk to make a parking lot for the church, so I stopped and asked if I could hunt the area. They called the mayor and said he would be over in a little bit, while waiting for him, I was just looking around. I saw a silver dime lying on top of the ground and I picked it up started to look at it and the mayor drove up.

M6 Finds My First Silver Dollar!

On March 14th 2012 I took my White's M6 and sand scoop and headed to my favorite beach. When I arrived I couldn't even find a place to park. I had forgotten it was spring break, so I go to plan B. Always have a backup plan for such occasions. I put the beach on the back burner and headed to an old home site not far from my home. Started in the front yard and found a few clad coins. Headed to the backyard and started my grid pattern from the back corner of the house made a few passes only finding a few wheat pennies.

M6 Does it Again!

I work in the telecommunications field and have been doing a lot of work in homes located in the older section of town. If the homeowner is happy with my work I ask for permission to hunt their property and am often rewarded with strange looks and a “Yes...go ahead.” This is exactly how I procured permission to hunt a home site that was built in 1925 and served as a doctor’s office for many years.

M6 Finds Antique Bracelet

I recently received permission to hunt property that dates back to the mid 1700’s. One of the houses used to be and old inn that burnt down in the early 1900’s and was later rebuilt. The other half of the property had a horse and carriage barn on it which had been recently torn down. I have been lucky enough to hunt other old sites here in Connecticut, so I knew to expect a lot of iron, lead and square nails.

My M6 Made 2011 a Year to Remember

I bought a White’s M6 in March of 2011. Little did I know how many great finds would be in store for me throughout the year. I detected many different places including old schools, parks, home sites, fairgrounds, colleges, and former amusement park sites. I was told that many of these sites were “hunted out” over the years.
