I would kill for a find like that. It's in great shape. Treasure hunting class is awesome idea. Bet you have some great field trips. Welcome to the net. Look forward to seeing more post from your class. Keep us in the loop. HH. RN
The kids have a blast. We were able to buy 2 Garrett Ace 250's in the Fall. They have served us well, but now the class is so popular that we need to figure out a way to buy a few more to meet the demand.
Great find! You know, you have some kind of fund raiser or something, maybe there is a local metal detecting club that would like to help out and get some more detectors for the kids...heck, they may have some club members donate them! I'll bet there are some members here who have an old 1-2 laying around in the closet that are still good but haven't been used in a while!
wow i really like this post,what your doing is just wonderful.p.s. i have a whites coinmaster 6/db that works well,found a old rfd mail lock with it the other day i would like to give to them if you want it.pm me the address or post it in the thread so i can send it

My wife is a teacher, and im telling her rigjt now about ur class..
Maybe if they had that when i was a kid i would not have a had such a tuff paper route..lol
Vino, thank you so much for the comments and your generosity. The boys love the class. In fact, so do many of the teachers and staff. Several have alternated borrowing the two detectors we have over the weekends so they can go detecting with their families. It's a lot of fun to see kids (and adults) get excited for rescuing and preserving history.
