    How much was it for sale for? Did you buy it? As a piece of wall art it might look pretty good for a good price.

    OOooohhh, you'e cruising for a bruising. Watch it feller. They obviously must work, since they're accompanied by testimonials. Haven't you see the pix of the guys posed next to the jars of coins they found ? Photographs don't lie after all

    You know I read that somewhere on the Internet, so therefore it must be true.

    Back in the 80's a local dealer was always showing me the latest best long range widget that could detect something miles away. He was on a fixation about getting a signal in the middle of a shopping center parking lot and wanted me to go 50/50 on digging this treasure up. ( Nice guy, but I don't think so) He demonstrated this new $1100 device in his downstairs showroom, and it swung right over to his safe containing all his gold and silver detecting finds.
    He was going on about this amazing device, and I kept on thinking "Ouiji Board"
    He started to detect my doubtful feelings and said that I could hide some gold in the office while he stepped out and he could find it once he returned.
    I agreed with the challenge and took the gold out of the open safe and hid it in a couple of spots in the showroom.
    He returned and it was amazing that device didn't detect one spot that I hid the gold. He scratched his head while making up a viable reason why it malfunctioned.

    Yep, if they worked, we would all be using one!

    The guts of this thing compared to what's inside a common vintage pocket transistor radio.
    The prices on these units vs. materials used was quite...different.

    No no no no. Look at Digger 27's post #12. It's *obvious* that it has electronic innards. Hence entirely scientific and electronic. Not hocus pocus, superstition, or spiritual. Recant of your accusations.

    Again, recant of your accusations. Do you find a gold coin every time you go out md'ing ? OF COURSE NOT. Hence why the double standard when asking for proof from this fellow ? Tsk tsk. And yes: I'm sure there was some valid reason why it didn't work for that table test . Eg.: Sunspots, solar flares, nearby magnets, a breeze, Electrical interference from the fluorescent light bulbs above, etc....

    Ok, now hurry out and buy one !!

    I can't remember if there was a gold coin in the lot, but there was a few hundred rings and chains from his water detecting. Sadly one day he came home and somebody had used one of those long crowbar items to lighten his collections, plus 25-30 detectors.
