Whites DFX Finds Jar Full of Coins 10" Down

I think Whites Metal Detectors, hands down, are the best in the world, especially, the DFX. I Have had mine about six months and a month ago I was scanning with my DFX, in a park near my home in Dixon, California. The place in the park where I was detecting use to have a really old three story house on part of the park grounds. I was over by some huge black walnut trees, when I received a super strong signal indicating silver, so i started digging. At about 10 inches I found a baby food jar with sixteen old coins in it. It had an 1877 Liberty seated quater, 1920 mercury dime, 1930 buffalo nickel, two Libery head nickels 1893 and 1897 and three Indian head pennies which are 1893, 1906, and 1907 plus other silver coins, it was great.

With my DFX I have found nine gold rings, seven silver rings, two gold chains and all kinds of other great stuff. The DFX is a money maker in the last six months I have found 2250 quaters, 1059 dimes, 254 nickels and 1369 pennies just in the parks and schools in the area I live in. I have so much more but, its just to much to list. Thank you Whites, you guys are the very best.

The sixteen coins are in the middle with a gold chain around them, that I also found that same day. Life is good.
