lol pepper those bring back some memories... i have used all three of those and owned a couple if not all at one time or another... old garage sale picks... was too young to buy new... your really showing your age :P14 AA batteries 8 in one pack 6 in the other.
The GoldMaster was the first detector the family bought-then it was full on own your own years later-no sharing my machine.
It was a costly hobby back then even.
First GoldMaster machine cost my father his 30-06 hunting rifle and a $150.00 back in the late 60's that was a heavy sum.
Similar to the 3rd picture but only had metal/mineral detected about 1-2" in the dry sand. No discrimination, dug lots of iron.

When the CoinMaster series was released it was a whole new world of detecting, the good times when every park, church, hall, was a virgin site.
My wrist ache now just looking at those handles.

That sounds like a great idea Ray.Can any of y'all impart some hurricane wisdom on me? After Andrew were there certain places that are just so littered with trash they are still unhuntable? We don't find much Charley debris anymore. I'd really like to check out some of our new beaches here but it seems like much of the old sand just got pushed on top of everything. I would never touch a burial mound, but what of shell middens (trash) that blew over? Thinking of launching a kayak out of Bunche Beach and heading north towards the Punta Rassa point, imagery shows a large strip of beach that wasn't there previously, but I expect to only find debris.
The GF and I are going to take a break from the craziness here and go ahead somewhere for a day this week. Maybe manasota for some shark teeth, how'd the beaches up north fair? Maybe I could convince her to let me do a quick dive in key largo, how's the clarity down there bart?
