  1. Bought the first one new after it came out shortly after I purchased my 70.  The early ones had a problem with the battery connections/spring and would shut off occasionally.  Eventually broke the ears off the coil, just wear and tear moved me to buy a used one off eBay.  Then came the 800 and well the 705 doesn't get much work today.  GaryC/Oregon Coast

  2. Actually, my wife probably finds more change in the parking lots than I find metal detecting.  Around forty bucks last year, just in small change.  If I'm in the car waiting for her in the market, I'll see her coming to the car by way of three rows over so she doesn't miss anything.  Her manta is "I don't need no metal detector to find money".  I have to live with that saying every time she picks up a penny!!!, Gota love her!!!  GaryC/Oregon Coast

  3. We are talking 40 years ago, right?  

     "I have dug so much that their is literally nothing left that gives a clean signal, I am literally now in all metal mode and trying to dig everything"

    It's very possible you are not remembering the location completely, just saying.  If you have dug all signals either with a crappy detector or a good one, it's very possible it's not there.  Sounds like you did a very decent job of looking for it.  I have no other good news to pass along, Sorry GaryC/Oregon Coast

  4. I've hunted many years at Southern California ski lifts.  They don't let you get on the slopes with a detector until the snow melts there.  Employees usually have the first shot at it anyway.  I always came back with more than $20.00 US dollars at a time.  Some jewelery even stuck in the branches of small bushes that the snow covered and when it melted the bush caught it. Ya, ya should have gone by and talked to her.  At least in her mind someone would had her back in the melt season and you would have had a contact number.  I just don't trust turning things in to unknowns as a third party.  Great looking place!!!  GaryC/Oregon Coast
