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.

Dual Field is Great at Retrieving Coins

While driving to the beach, I spotted an area that stood out to me. It looked very different from what I was used to, there were some rocks that I had never seen in this area of the beach and it looked like sand was stripped away. Once I got to that spot, I immediately got a signal. After that first signal it was practically non-stop digging in what I'd estimate to be a 15 foot area front to back.

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.

Gold, Ice, and My Dual Field

We were having a nasty storm that sanded in most of my hunting spots. However, knowing the depth my Dual Field PI can get, and chomping at the bit to get into the water, off I went.

I hit a local beach that is hunted hard and sure enough sand everywhere, but in I went. Working parallel with the shoreline instead of gridding because the conditions wasn't producing much of anything.

Thanks for Many Satisfying Detecting Hours

It was a year ago in January, the 16th of 2011 to be exact. I was out in the water for the first time with my brand new White’s BeachHunter 300. I got a hit a few minutes out, a sterling silver charm glimmered nicely in the sun. Then came hit number two, a stainless steel serving spoon, also glimmering in the sun! Shortly thereafter came hit number three… much to my disbelief I pulled up a Platinum Tiffany Eternity ring with 28 Lucida cut diamonds totaling 1.5 carrots! I would later find out that this ring retails new for $8,350.00

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.

I know you enjoy hearing true stories of finding treasure with White’s Detectors, so I had to share this one with you. I sent my BeachHunter 300 ID in for repairs and got it back the first of the week. I took it out in the lake and it worked like new.

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!

Dual Field Finds a Tiffany and Co. Ring

For the month of July, I have been on a ring drought. My friends have all found gold, silver, and platinum while all I have been finding is clad and aluminum. I decided to bring the Dual Field out and do some wet sand since the water hasn't been producing.
