Sid Witherington in the Commercial Appeal

By Webmaster | July 3, 2008

The Memphis Metal Detector Club’s own Sid Witherington is featured today in the Commercial Appeal. It’s an extensive article, detailing many of Sid’s Civil War finds. An excerpt:

In sum: He has found more than 7,000 Civil War bullets, more than 100 Civil War plates, more than 600 buttons, 13 sword belt plates, assorted gold and Spanish coins, and other artifacts that include Civil War-era spoons and wedding bands, mess plates and, well, just about anything else you can think of.

All in all, it’s great press for Sid. Maybe the article will attract a few new people to the hobby.

    I am the mother of a 13 year old boy very interested in your club. He wants a metal detector for Christmas and I was wondering if one of you might let me know if a $200.00 detector will be a good detector. Any tips would be very much appreciated.
    Also, does he need the probe, headphones, gloves etc…Thanks

    Bring your son to a meeting! He’s sure to pick up a few tips.

    In answer to your question, a lot of people like the Garrett Ace 250, which has a street price around $200. It’s a really solid detector and an excellent machine for a beginner.
