Welcome to Tnet Tim.Tesoro has a good reputation so I,d think you did OK.Now get it out of the box and start learning how to use it and find some stuff.

It is a fantastic machine. They have a frequency shift that stops interference from high electrical lines and other detectors. That was back in the day. I have dug a ton with mine and still kep that old machine in the back of my truck in case I want to check a site out. I have hunted some sites almost out going back with an at pro or Fisher and maybe I missed a little but not much. Its a beep machine that is easy to tune and hits deep. It pinpoints better than any machine I have.

I have the older Conquistador with the frequency switch on the bottom. It is a wonderful detector. You got a steal! Congratulations!

Wow!

Now that's a super deal.
