This special edition of The New Successful Coin Hunting book is dedicated to Kellyco Metal Detectors, the world famous Kellyco Test Team and all the supporting employees of one of the oldest and finest companies in the field of metal detecting.
This is only the second time Garrett Metal Detectors has dedicated our most popular metal detecting book to any company. The first time was in 1982 and at that time it was dedicated to Kellyco Metal Detectors for their outstanding contribution to the hobby of metal detecting and treasure hunting.
And now, 30 years later we once again congratulate Kellyco for their dedication and unselfish efforts to popularize metal detecting in the United States and throughout the world. Kellyco is always ready to donate time, money and resources as well as pioneering ways to assist newcomers to get the best detector for their needs whether they would be hunting coins, rings jewelry or real buried treasures.
Kellycodetectors.com was the first to introduce the most comprehensive chart where anyone can compare all detector models on one page of their website. Kellyco is also the first and only company in metal detecting to be included in Inc. Magazine's 5000 list of the BEST private based firms in the United States.
The Kellyco Test Team independently tests detectors under actual field conditions. This team is made up of experienced detector users who have attended educational seminars sponsored by Garrett Metal Detectors and other manufacturers to keep their knowledge current with changes in technology. Results of this testing help bring about industry product changes and improvements. Field tests and reports by Kellyco help everyone interested in this fascinating hobby to gain greater knowledge so that he or she may be assured that the metal detector they purchase is electronically advanced and most importantly tested and certified to be the best available for the price.

Stu Auerbach, Kellyco's owner, & "Kellyco Test Team"
Together a group of dedicated professionals who test almost all metal detectors manufactured in the United States and Europe.
Over ten years ago (1974) I first visited Stu Auerbach at his home in central Florida. At that time I was impressed with his approach and concepts concerning the hobby of metal detecting. Stu recognized the need for someone, or group, to provide actual field test data on all metal detectors, under various operating conditions, ranging from the ideal to the most adverse. Varied tests were needed to assure the customer that the detector he purchased from Kellyco would perform to his individual requirements. From this idea the "Kellyco Test Team" was born. Since then it has provided a wealth of information to the general public while continuously recommending improvements to various manufacturers, which has resulted in the development of detectors with greater performance and simplicity of operation.
Kellyco Detector Distributors and the "Kellyco Test Team" have provided coin, relic and treasure hunters with first class detecting equipment and valuable data regarding the differences in detectors, assuring customers satisfaction with any detector purchased from Kellyco.
Stu and his staff have also led the fight to preserve our hobby from restrictive legislation. Their efforts and success has earned them the gratitude of the entire Metal Detecting Fraternity.
I congratulate KELLYCO Metal Detector Distributors of Florida for a job well done and wish them continued success.
