Probably like lots of things in life. You can have all the gear but no idea. Often not the detector, but the person behind it I would think.

hi folks, been a lot longer than i thought since i posted anything in here but iv'e only been out about a dozen times and found bugger all.

hit a spot i have tried probably 3 times before with no luck, this time i went into a different area and got a small coin spill :Y: :)

Seems that the machine doesn't have the final word,although today's detectors would leave the older ones in the dust (if you have some clue) so to speak.

But as my detecting guru Gary used to say - if it isn't in the ground you can't find it 8)

Good to see these older machines still being used,maybe you should contact Shannon's for some insurance :D being what some might call an enthusiast :cool:

Nice collection of silver :Y:

Good effort :)

Yes it's a hard choice isn't it. Looking to buy my first for myself and the kids so after something that's easy to use. I've been reading a bit, and looking at the ace 250 but not certain either. Happy hunting.

cant go wrong with the ace 250, they are a great 1st detector.

Thanks Numpty. I'm leaning a little more that way now. I know this probably isn't the right spot to ask, but are the waterproof coils actually handy or a bit more of a gimmick?

Cool Finds Numpty . Keep going you may find a dropped 1 1931 indian die. They are worth around 4,000 in good condition. They are actually rarer than the 1930. I know I have one. Got it valued by a coin dealer about 4 years ago. Found in my fathers cache of coins after he passed. Now only if could find that 1930.!!!

That thrip has seen a few trouser pockets in its time, another silver for the collection - congrats on your oldest coin. :Y:
