Garage sale score = 2 detectors
They wanted $5.00 each, but I got both for $8.00. Both had batteries and both work. We played with them in the back yard and were surprised by the depth. I think the Heathkit is from about 1960, and the previous owner had kept a track of finds by writing with a grease pencil on the coil. The total for this machine was $311.68.

what hath god wrought
These should fetch a few beans. There are some serious vintage md collectors out there. I dont know if these are rare but maybe someone will make an offer that will seem very good.

Retired Air Force, unfortunately still working
When I was 15 I built a metal detector from plans in an electronics book with my dad. I always hope some day to see it here on TN with someone talking about it.
In support of my country and its freedoms I will be wearing a flag lapel pin, have a flag decal on my car, and a flag flying proudly at my home.This is to show I vote and support the right of our citizens to vote, to show I am retired military and I support our current and past military, to show I am a citizen and support the rights of those who take the legal path to citizenship, and above all else I am a taxpayer, the supervisor of all elected and appointed government workers who represent me.
