thanx for your input here! When you say "1962"... then certainly those made by G.E.D. at that time, bore no resemblence to the type that Arthur has here, right?
What did those 1962 models look like? Were they TR or BFO? Were they capable of finding coin-sized targets, or only bigger targets? How deep could they find a coin-sized target to?
And another question for you: Of those folks you met back in the early 1960s, had any of them been coin-detecting since the 1950s? If so, what machines were available to them, that could find coin-sized targets in those earlier years? Because I know that most machines in those earlier years, prior to the 1960s, were only capable of finding large jar and hubcap sized items. However, I have read about persons who had odd-ball experimental types of detectors, that did indeed find individual coin-sized items, even as far back as the early 1950s. Granted, they probably only went an inch deep I suppose?
So when you started, what were the "vintage" machines then? and what were they capable of?
