Good Starter - Teaches Basic Metal Detecting

ST in Mother Lode in California - best

I bought this detector for my passtime, and, though it is a junior detector, once I set out around the house it turned out to be a good investment. The previous occupants, seemed to have thrown out hundreds of 1 cents which were buried in the gravel out back of the house. I learned later that the pond/waterfall in the fenced backyard was used as a wishing well, and they had pumped the water and coins out to the back area. Some quarters, dimes and nickels were found. From the experience, I found the user's manual to be accurate and helpful. Everything works just like the manual states. Pull-tabs, though, can sound like 1 cent, and 1 cent can sometimes sound close to a quarter. Iron can be eliminated mostly, though, rusty nails can sound like 1 cent.
