    Yes, as 1637 said, I think it's on-line. A long time back I recall seeing a link to every single whites operating manual, for every single machine they ever made. I'm sure the link sill exists somewhere, but I don't happen to have the link.

    The unfortunate thing about the individual operating manuals on that link though , is they do not show the date of introduction for each of those machines. On some of the manual, you could indeed see a date for the publication of the manual. But that could not be counted on as being the date of the introduction of that machine. Because ... sometimes ... the operating manual itself went through revisions a year or two later. And the date you're looking at might only be a date of an updated manual. Not the date of the introduction of the machine to production.

    But I can take a pretty close stab at your particular machine. I'm pretty sure that yours is when Whites attempted to add a disc. function to their earlier 66tr. That was short-lived before the introduction of the GEB supreme. Which would make your machine to be about 1974-ish or 75-ish.

    Thanks to those that replied .I was able to locate a manual for the item in question I need to sit down and see if the thing works . It does find metal and coins but I am not sure if all the dials work like that are supposed to . It is indeed vintage but should be fun just to try out

    There are a number of old Whites catalogues on line at a site called treasurelinx. Their oldest catalogue is from 1976 and does list a Goldmaster Discriminator, but I think that Tom in CA was right about them coming out a year or two earlier. A dinosaur performance-wise, but was probably as good as anything else out there in its day.

    I'm familiar with that link. But I think that was just for various catalogs of the manufacturers. Not operating manuals. Right ? The link I was thinking of, that I recall seeing, was the links to actual Whites machines, that went back well into the 1960s models. Versus the link you're speaking of, that ... yes ... . only goes back to the mid 1970's.

    Yes, only catalogues and old advertisements. Some interesting history there though.

    Im feeling OLD here... When we first went out metal detecting with my friend, I had a white;s coinmaster 4 and he had a whites Goldmaster TR-66.. My old man had one too. I just went down to the basement where I have it hanging from the garage above my bench.I believe that is what you have...My father never used his but my friend did a whole bunch and did he EVER find a lot of stuff... BUT this was the golden age of metal detecting . Every place we went was Virgin and hardly anybody knew what we had. Im going to put the year of the Goldmaster Tr 66 about 1971. Im kinda new here but when I figure out how to take a photo, I'll place it on this thread...But thats what I think you have.
