Father & Son Team Enjoying Detecting

My Dad and I have been using your metal detectors for 6 wonderful years now, and we are both big White's fans. We go out almost every weekend and it's how we spend our time together. My Dad has a Prizm IV and I have a MXT, both of which we have had great success.

MXT Finds Ring with 37 Diamonds

This past autumn, my wife was hospitalized for about two months with a very serious illness. We live in the mountains of the Eastern Sierra, but the hospital was near Santa Barbara, about 300 miles from our home. So I pretty much lived out of our motorhome along the beaches during that time.

My First Great Find with My MXT

I am new to the whole metal detecting scene. A couple friends of mine were always talking about what they found and how much fun they were having, so I decided to buy a White’s MXT since it’s what they had and join them. I starting detecting with them every Sunday morning but was having trouble finding anything.

Hunting With My MXT is Fantastic

I love hunting with my White's MXT metal detector because it's so easy and fun to hunt with. I recently used the White's MXT at local Boy's Club football field which is owned by the city school system. I had permission to hunt the sites, as I always ask before going on private or public owned property.

Some Awesome Finds With my MXT

I found out from the local paper about a church buying a city block with several houses on it. They tore down the houses and began to plan for a parking lot. I called the church to ask permission to hunt during construction. I knew this part of town was very old from doing research about the properties. The church also went back to the late 1800's and I couldn't wait to start hunting.

Two of My Best Relic Finds With My MXT

Recently I got permission to hunt a plantation house site that dates back to the 1770's. I was ecstatic as this property had essentially never been hunted! On the first day I arrived, I pulled the MXT out of the trunk, turned it on, and the first target out of the ground was a Colonial shoe buckle! This was followed by a deep Navy cuff button, a good number of flat buttons, brass hinges, and other house site finds.

One Year of Detecting-With My MXT

I always took it on our yearly vacation to Seaside OR. and would use it on the beach in the early mornings while the family slept in and would maybe take it out 2 or 3 more time throughout the year. I was always happy with the money and things I found with it until last summer I have had more time to detect and have found 10 times the goodies by learning to use this detector to its full potential.

MXT Finds an Ordinary Ring

I have been using the MXT for several years now and recently made a very interesting find.

I was searching for Civil War relics near an old farmhouse in NW Georgia when I found what I thought was just an ordinary silver ring. I was excited to find the ring because jewelry isn’t something that I find a lot of, so I put it in my container that I use for buttons and went on my way.
