Found US Calvary Bit Boss

US Calvary Bit Boss

On April 5th, 2008, I was relic hunting in Tennessee on the "Wiley Blair Farm" which was used by both the union and the confederate’s armies. I was metal detecting around a bar-wire fence and I heard a low repeatable signal at 7 inches deep on my White's MXT.

Found Over 1600 Coins in 4 Months

I bought my MXT 4 months ago and have found over 1600 coins so far. The first 2 months, I didn’t dig and weak signals, I missed several. The MXT is really a remarkable detector. I found almost all the coins and jewelry at public schools and parks that have been hunted for years.

MXT Specializing in Hunted Out Sites!

A solid tone showing a 55 VDI at about 8 inches – it sounded good, but I wasn’t expecting the 1884 IH Cent that would be in the bottom of the hole after removing my plug at this hunted out 1870 home site. The owner had already told me that I could waste my time detecting the property if I wanted but I was not the first to ask so I would not find anything. Obviously the previous hunters did not use a White’s detector when they searched. In one morning I found the 1884 IH, a silver Rosie and numerous wheat cents - needless to say, the MXT found items left behind by the previous detectors.

Success in England with MXT!

We just returned from a week of metal detecting in Colchester, Essex, England. The weather was a challenge with pouring rain, sleet, strong winds and lots of mud but our MXT’s were up to the challenge.

Found 4 1800's Coins with Week Old MXT!

Hi my name is Shawn and I would like to tell you about my finds on my second day out with my new MXT. I met up on March 30th with 2 friends who use the MXT detectors as well. What a day we all had. I found my first silver coin an 1895 O Barker Half Dollar and in the same hole my second silver an 1857 Seated quarter. I also found an 1847 Braided Hair Cent. My friends also found some colonial buckles and buttons. The MXT worked great and is very user friendly, I just wanted to say thank you and here are some of my finds.

MXT Finds 3 Colonial Coins!

MXT finds 3 Colonial coins along with other great finds

I want to thank White’s Electronics for making this special machine. I have owned my MXT for only 1 month and I already paid for my investment. I took my MXT out after learning how to use it with the instructional video and owners guide both provided by White’s.

MXT Finds Read Shell and Button!
I've been hunting with the MXT for going on 2 years now and I'm still happy I made the choice to go with this machine! I couldn't ask for an easier machine to use, pretty simple and goes deep to top it off. Back in March 2007, I was fortunate enough to attend my first 'Diggin' in Virginia' hunt organized by John and Rose Kendrick. Soon after lunch on the first day of the hunt, my buddy Steven digs a nice fuse plug at the edge of a massive field and little did i know the spot had more to offer. Roughly 15 minutes after he dug the fuse plug I get a VERY loud strong signal, VDI is locked on +0 Foil and it says 4 inches dee...

Jewelry Cache Found with MXT!
I thought I would write you and tell you about one of my best finds with my MXT. I was detecting one of my usual spots in the woods, when I got a mixed trashy type signal, I decided to dig it. I am glad I did, because about 8 inches down, I had to cut a huge root with my lesche digger....

Super 12 Loop Makes Big Difference!
I want to first say how much fun I have had with my metal detector. Over the past couple of years I have found many silver coins with numerous old pennies. I don’t think anything has topped my finds over this past summer....

My Most Treasured Relic!
I purchased my MXT in January. I have been nothing short of pleased with this machine. I had been finding civil war bullets, buttons, and old coins. Some of these have been fairly deep. Well, last weekend I found my most treasured relic. Since I have only been relic hunting for about 6 months, I don't have a ton of stuff but this little beauty sure makes up for that....
