Very nice picture, I like the old Teknetics. I bought a Teknetics Eagle from Kellyco in about 1989, I'm thinking it was right around $300. and I really liked that detector. It was a huge step up from the Bounty Hunter Mini Red Baron I had previous to that. The analog meter and tone ID system was great. The only thing I didn't like was the handle, it would give me blisters after about 3 hours use. I think I had the same high tops you are wearing too, that was the only style shoes I wore back then.

Yes, i loved my 8ooo, it worked awesome for the wood chips around and close to poles. I had gotten calluses on my hand form the handle and it was all right then. my machine would pick up a silver dime at 9 inches. . Dale

I used to have a compass patch just like yours. I also had a green "Compass Recovery Team" jacket. It had a picture of an 1877 Indian head cent.
I used to have a 99B, a 74B, 77B, Judge 2 manual, Judge 2 auto, and Coin Magnum.
Ah yes... The good old days! Good to see you on the forum!

Don't have hardly any pic's metal detecting, but ran across this one. My mom and I about 1985 1986.
Nice picture :) When my mom died my sister went to her house and took all her pictures and important things. I asked for some but never got any. When my sister died i asked my niece for some of the pictures of my mom and never got any, Living 400 miles away sure did not help
