Garrett ACE 150 Metal Detector

Garrett ACE 150 Metal Detector

Product Review (submitted on March 19, 2008):
I bought a new Garrett Ace 150 for my birthday last January. Actually, my wife bought it for me. Naturally, we got it from Kellyco. I love the detector; it’s easy to use and lightweight. My biggest disappointment is that it detects lots of pull tabs and screw caps as coins or jewelry. I spend a lot of time at a local park that was a beach resort back in the early 1900's. I have found lots of coins (all modern) and a couple of cheap rings and a fire opal earring. The problem with this park is that it is very popular and the county brings in loads of sand each year to maintain the beach area. According to locals, the original beach is about nine to twelve feet below the current surface.

I also have another park close by that is a county park. The land was donated to the county. It was originally homesteaded in 1878. The house burned down in 1963. However, the area is so overgrown with blackberry bushes that I can't even get to the house site. I'm sure that if I could, I should be able to find some good stuff. I have located a couple of different trash dump areas. There, I found some old, rusty, nearly disintegrated jar lids and broken glass. I've also found some pieces of unidentifiable metal pieces. I suspect they are from some sort of farm tools.

This summer, I plan on detecting a couple of 1870's era churches and school yards in the Yakima and Wenatchee, WA. I really enjoy metal detecting and probably spend ten to twenty hours a week enjoying my hobby. I'm retired, so I have the time and the opportunity. Thanks!
