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.

3 Cent Silver Find With My V3i

I was hunting a pretty hard hit civil war winter encampment with some of my hunting buddies in Stafford county VA. My one partner found a couple button backs in a small area and called over the rest of us. So we all ascended on the area and began to hunt there. I kept digging little pieces of brass while the others kept digging a couple more buttons and backs.

V3i Finds a Beautiful Seated Liberty

My friend and I decided to detect a small local park with a few soccer fields. We both are detecting with V3i. The open area that we were detecting must had the ground cleared and leveled out some years ago for these young folks to play ball on. As we were detecting, both me and my buddy start finding rifle shells, can slaw, and some modern trash.

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.

The weather is finally cooling so it is time to play in the dirt! I found these with my V3i at several depths anywhere from an inch to OVER a foot deep! The coolest thing is I went to a place my buddies said that has been hunted out. So I love to brag to them when my whites slaps shows them up. So thanks ya’ll for making a great unit.
