 I had gotten a flyer in the mail from a metal detecting business in the north Dallas-Ft Worth suburb of North Richland Hills in early 2002 . I checked out the business and ended up purchasing a White's DFX metal detector, a high end general use metal detector.   MD is the buzz word for Metal Detecting and a person who partakes in the hobby is an MD'er and the actions one takes is called MD-ing.

I started my first day MD-ing on May 6th, 2002 where I was living near Springtown, Texas. Found a quarter and a penny in the front yard. By the time 2002 came to a close, I had picked up 2,971 coins from the ground and a few rings and other artifacts.

As of  Aug 5, 2014  the accumulated coin count is at 22,687 with a face value of $2,061.16

Coins have been picked up in over 400 zip codes and 23 states.
