14K Gold Medallion Found!
Hi JW, I just want to tell you that the verdict is in on the 8" DD Excelerator search coil you sent me. It is an excellent search coil and I highly recommend it to White's MXT and DFX users. It is what you would expect from a top of the line search coil. This coil is an excellent choice for open field hunting and even in high trash areas.

Cape Cod Beach Delivers 1.74 Carat Diamond Ring
I got into metal detecting after doing my family genealogy. I found out that I had a Great Uncle who was a gold prospector in Arkansas. In 1927 he was murdered for his fortune, and learning this story got me interested in gold prospecting techniques. That was four years ago, and since then I've been metal detecting up and down the Eastern United States. One day I was searching a desolate beach in Cape Cod, MA. - just me, a sand scoop and my Whites MXT that I had been using for two years, when I found my best treasure. I had been out for about a half hour and the beach was really sandy because a storm had just passed. I got a good signal and found, buried about an inch down,...
