1863 Civil War Breast Plate

I want to tell you about an awesome find I made with my M6. My wife and I were at my mother-in-laws house mowing her lawn. I took my M6 along in hopes of searching her yard when we were finished mowing. After the lawn was mowed I started searching the front of the house and was finding a coin or 2, then I got a strong penny hit at 6” deep.

First Time Out with M6

I finally got out with my M6! All that I can say is wow!! I decided to hunt an old park in the city of Saskatoon. I was using the Eclipse 5.3 and ground balance, and then switched to lock. I set the sensitivity at around 85. I started hunting low and slow, I found a total of 21 silver coins! Six 5 cent pieces (1898-1917), 8 dimes (1906-1966), 7 quarters (1902-1966) and I even found a key date 1923 Canada 1 cent in great shape!

1864 Two Cent Piece

It began when I spotted an article in the local newspaper about an overnight fire that had destroyed a very old house in a nearby central Illinois town. I immediately called my friend and local White’s dealer, Graham McCoy, positive that he would want to ride over to the town with me to see if we could locate the owner and, perhaps, obtain his permission to detect the site. Unfortunately, although we did find the owner, we were unable to hunt the property because a fire investigation was in full swing. So… there we were in a very old town filled with houses well over 100 years old, and we had no place to hunt.

M6 Scores at Church Yard!

Just wanted to write to you to tell you how sweet a detecting machine the Whites M6 is. I’ve had the M6 about 2 months now and have found lots of coins, many of them old.

My M6 Story

My husband, William, has been relic hunting with the 5900 for several years and when we got married he bought me a Classic 3 so I could go with him. This summer both of us put our name on the list for the 8th "Diggin' In Virginia" hunt that John and Rose Kendrick put on. William was selected right away but I spent a week or two on the alternate list before being informed that a spot had opened up enabling me to go as well. About a week before the hunt, William surprised me with a new M6. Needless to say, I was very excited about the upgrade and was even more excited about the upcoming "DIV." The first day was miser...

Barber Dime Trio

I have been detecting for over 35 years, and only have had about a dozen detectors, but have had the greatest service, and best finds from the 6 White's detectors, I have owned. Presently I have 3 detectors, a White's Coinmaster Classic III, an IDX, and I bought a new M6, with an extra 5.3 Eclipse coil in January of this year.

White's M6 Finds All Sorts of Goodies!
Since Purchasing my Detector 3 weeks ago, I've been to the Beach on the Treasure Coast 4 Times. the Only thing that I've found on the Beach was a pair of Sunclasses made by Ralph Lauren. Expensive I suppose. However, two block down the street from my home address is a small park that has been there since the Mid 70's. It has a playground for kids with Swings and Slides plus a covered pavillion with a grill. I guess over the years many people have been the this park and dropped coins plus other things. The photo below is what I been able to detect with my new M6 on 4 Outtings now at the park. The Hair piece and the eagle at the top of the photo is silver. The hairpiece has 3 bl...
