What Will You Find?

20 Coins and Three Rings in 2 Hours!

I purchased my Garrett GTI 1500 just over 4 weeks ago. I had used metal detectors in the past and I finally bought my own. I live on the Gulf Coast of Alabama. My first weekend and two weekends after I hunted on local beaches. I found quite a few coins and some non expensive jewelry. In the next couple of weeks I hunted at an old house and a local swimming hole. In all I found over one hundred coins some more rings and other metal items.

Just last Sunday morning I hunted for 2 hours and found 20 coins and three rings. One of which was silver with the center stone missing. I am very pleased with Garret's GTI 1500. I am having more success that I thought possible. The attached picture is the items I have found in just four weeks. Kellyco has been the best online company I have ever dealt with.
