  1. Each detector comes with 2 coils, both the small coil and the 10" Elliptical coil. Both are in good shape. First buyer gets a pair of FISHER deluxe headphones with the detector. $500 each, shipped to lower 48 states. Thanks for looking! Jim
  2. Yes he did. He worked a mine east of Independence near Majourka canyon. He had painted a seascape on a rock outcrop. I was there once many years ago and found the painting and his diggings near the spring.
  3. I just received this email! American-Made White's Metal Detectors View this email in your browser
  4. White's GM3 Goldmaster for sale $300 shipped to lower 48 states. Works as it should.
  5. Yes, he was a good friend. I went on many detecting trips with him. Spent some time at his home. He lived a few miles south of Coarsegold, which is about 50 miles north of Fresno. He had so many stories to tell. Miss him and the good times we had. RSJ
  6. Chuck, You can check out this link. Steve lists several detectors that are great on coins and gold both. http://www.detectorprospector.com/gold-prospecting-guides/steve-guide-gold-nugget-detectors.htm I have a Minelab X-Terra 705 and a Fisher Gold Bug Pro. Both do well on coins using the 10" elliptical coils.
  7. Charles Garret who along with his wife started Garret Metal detectors in 1964, Passed on 4/3/2015. Sad news indeed. First time I ever tried nugget hunting was at Quartzite with a Garrett Deepseeker. It worked, I found several nuggets.
  8. Thanks for the post, Jennifer! I enjoyed it very much. For those that didn't like it! Tough! Get a life!
  9. My guess is that both the coil and detector together are the new technology.
