If you do a search there are plenty of people who ask a similar question that lots of people have already answered.
You need to specify what types of hunting you plan to do with it so people can narrow it down for you.
Like are you just going for coins?
Looking for jewelry?
Looking for Civil War relics?
Looking around lakes?
Looking in shallow water, fresh or salt?
Looking in deeper than knee deep water?
One must be smarter than the equipment they are working with!

LRL fraud debunked
There's a lot of difference between a $200 metal detector and a $600 one. If the question is which is "best", the question should be rephrased to something like "less than $600".
One wonders what the purpose of the question was in the first place, it's like asking what's the best 4-wheeled vehicle in the $10K to $30K range-- a question so useless that not only does it have no answer, it can hardly even be the beginning point of a discussion.
If you're interested in buying a metal detector, as Ace suggested you need to offer more specifics.
Also since you're a newbie, I'll offer another suggestion: referring to yourself as a grave robber isn't likely to win you any popularity contests around here. Different alias might get better responses.

Coins, jewelry, shot gun shells, relics, doesn't matter. If I find a calcified turd my uncle will be calling the county historical society.

There is a shallow marsh/creek/small waterway on the property. I need to survey that too.
What method is being used to find objects other than metal?
(Graves, arrowheads, pottery, etc.?)

My advise would be to use the metal detector to find a hot spots with coins, forks and any other metal trash of the time. Then get on your hands and knees and dig! I hear that the best places are where the old outhouses were.
People might have lost coins, jewelry and other goodies. Plus they threw old pill bottles, booze bottles and other 'trash' into the pit. Problems are finding those exact spots and then digging down 5 to 8 feet. Don't worry,
the outhouse bacteria will be long gone, just the normal germs will be there as always.
Hope this helps.
