Bounty Hunter for me ,cost 90 bucks, a lot of money for a poor high school boy in 1972.I seem to recall it could barely sound off on a coin roll at 2 inches. When they invented discrimination and ground balance, a Tek Mark 1 was somehow acquired, best machine I ever owned as a silver producer.

A detector I built using plans in a popular science magazine. It used a transistor radio as the receiver and the coil was hand wound and connected to a single transistor transmitter. It actually worked. Then I bought a Heath Kit GD-48 metal detector kit. This was in 1968.

1974 or 75, Jetco Goldstar TR. Then a White's 6000/d when I realized how lousy the Jetco was. I get a chuckle from the irony that I ended up at White's for a while, and now I work at Jetco. Or, what used to be Jetco.
