Re: new to detecting and have lots of questions

The money would be better spent on a guaranteed used machine from a reputable dealer.
We have a number of such dealers if you need some friendly help.
Happy Hunting,

A few of our club members located a small hoard of such coins last year.

They are still going through the system.

They could have chosen to build on the site, but had the common sense to save a piece our city history for future genera...
