Metal Detector Treasure Finds, Pictures and Stories
Kellyco Has a New Star
He called the other day to tell me they were in and yesterday, Friday, I went to pick one up. I ask him if he thought it would work on my "OLD 550"? We checked it out on one of the 550s in the store and it looked like it would work.
Now my "OLD 550" is the first machine I started with back in 2005. It has been through many battles all over this nation. The Old Man is really worn and sometimes I have to work with it to make the pin point button work. I only use him when I am in a competition hunt or at the beach as I have purchased other machines that are supposed to have more "Bells and Whistles" - so they say. In fact, the one I currently use is supposed to be one of the top of the line machines of another company.
We were there for about three hours. I just knew I was in for another 100 or more penny day when my son told me he had to go the rest room - really bad. What could I say?
In our short time there I picked up: 7 quarters, 6 dimes, 6 nickels, 73 pennies, 1 token,2 silver rings, 1 silver medallion plus the normal junk.
I have used many, supposedly top of the line detectors, with a lot of success. I am telling you now - I will put my "Old 550" with this 8X6 Butterfly coil up against them all. It is like putting a new engine in a old car. What a team!!!!!
