    These are all really great posts. I really appreciate hearing all about everyone’s first detectors. I had no idea there was so much variety over the years!

    Mine was the maroon whites coinmaster. I have since collected about 6 detectors. I think I am starting a herd.

    A Garrett " A3B United States Gold Hunter ", bought it used, and did not have a clue about how to really use it. Four knobs, two of which were "10" turn for precise adj. of GB & Threshold, but that Garrett was the "hook", many years and 6 machines later, I'm still doing it.
