The Tesoro Tejon metal detector was introduced in 2003 and ceased production in 2018. It is a 17.4 kHz VLF metal detector aimed primarily at coin, jewelry, relic, and gold nugget detecting.

"The Tejon features a dual discriminator that is activated by an effortless trigger switch, allowing for an instant target check. This detector also includes a tone adjustment option, which is designed for treasure hunters who have lost the ability to hear certain audio frequencies. The Tejon pushes the coil’s signal deeper while increasing sensitivity for smaller targets. This unit is full of features that amount to more informed choices, less time digging trash, and most importantly: more time hunting." Source: Tesoro 2013 catalog

I have a Tejon with the concentric coil for about a year and it has brought new life to old grounds that I have hit with my AT Pro. Within a week I found a hefty gold ring from the 1930's with 7 sapphires and 4 diamonds mixed in with square and round tabs in a local park. The machine does take some getting used to and learning curve is a little more than the typical VDI machines when distinguishing the good from the bad. It will excel in trashy areas and can snipe out good targets with a clean signal amongst the trash once you know the unit. The silent search is nice and the user can look around and enjoy the day rather than keep looking at a display. Don't get me wrong, I do like my AT Pro and it serves me well but the Tesoro won me over.
