White's GMT Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on March 17, 2008):
- I purchased my White's GMT DD detector used, and it was made for Sears so none of the the names fit and I chose one under White's because they made this one. It was my very first and only detector but I loved it and it produced very nicely for this beginner. There are many old foundations around me here in NY and I found so many interesting items with this detector. Old pocket watches, lead toys, Indian head penny, 1907 quarter, horse bells, locket necklace, a bullet that didn't fire. As I said, so many different items and each one had my heart just pounding with excitement, YEEEE HAWWW LOOK AT THIS! I had so much fun with this old detector and it wasn't even a top of the line, just an off brand by White's. That is why I highly respect these White's people, thank you White's. Now for the part that I am really writing this for. I was at home one day when I got a call from a friend, he said (in a very concerned voice) John I heard you have a metal detector. This guy use to make fun of me and couldn't figure out why anyone would waste time with those things (he who laughs last LOL). He said his sister lost a very expensive ring while swimming in a pond and was wondering if my detector would work in water? I didn't know if it would but heck I was ready to make him eat his words if I could. Long story short - I put the coil into the water all the way up to the detector box and started moving it around when YEEEE HAWWW guess what? Beep beep and up came the ring. That day I became the hero for his sister and what a feeling. Thank you White's company.
