I would say you spent a little cash on that baby! But your way ahead of the game to spend the money for a good one. The one I used would tell you what type of metal you were detecting. Which really helps so your not chasing metal ghosts! lol
Nice Joe! Smile

thanks i have been doing research for the last three years and this seems to be the best overall detector. the place i bought it, the owner has detected for 5 years and has machines that cost over $5,000. i straight up asked him what is the best machine he sells to find coins and jewerly and he told me this one. i would say he is an honest guy Very Happy

I think you did just fine. The detector I use is my uncles and he spent a lot on it. Im almost sure its the same brand. But I did find a very old coin with it. And I mean its worth some money!! $$$ Let me know how it all works for yah! I want to purchase one of my own as well. That way I wont have to borrow my uncles all the time! lol.

This is great Joe! I always wanted to try this. Be sure and do a little "homework" as to identify historic sites to search. Long forgotten public gathering places like parks, beaches etc. Even old abandoned properties can yield great finds. I wish you luck! Smile

That'll be a lot of fun, Joe. I've let people metal-detect under my office building, as it was a dance hall at the turn of the last century. They did find some old coins beneath the front door entrance.

Maybe you'll get lucky like the guy out here that happened to find a few tin cans full of gold pieces from the gold rush era, they were worth a couple mil if I remember right!

I wish you well Joe...that sounds like a lot of fun. I'm amazed to hear that some of the more expensive models can actually tell you what kind metal has been detected. Please keep us posted. Will you have to wait until all the snow is gone? Hee! Hee!

Joe,

A good place to start is your local community's "Historical Center" or town archive. You'd be amazed at how your hometown looked even 100 years ago. Old maps will show you PRIME places to search locally. That's a good place to start and just outside your front door! Smile

Look for old "wishing well" locations as well. They were very popular in parks in the late 1800's.

i have been talking to my local historical societies, there is a town near me that was established in 1793 and there is still a few old buildings that have been standing since then. i have been given exclusive permission to search some of these sites and with a little charm i think i can get somemore also Very Happy
