Here few photos of my older Nautilus owned and dug tons relics with in late 1970s before the DMC model where made. I'm sure all hardcore long time loyal Nautilus user wish time would go back to old days when Jerry Tyndall made many "First" design for us relic hunters machines in depth and power to finds tons killer relics that other machine missed Chuck

they still look brand new,you take very go care of them. Even older machines in the hands of a Pro like yourself, will find as much as the new machines of today.The relics were there then today mostly not.Lucky for us most sites are never hunted out but what is left is deep and only a few detectors will find it. Nautilus is still one of the few. Good hunting Gary.

I remember those! My nephew used to hunt with the Silver King. My first Nautilus was the LF with the horseshoe handle. That detector found my first boxplate(which I still have) MANY bullets and lots of other relics. It's enjoying retirement nowadays due to all the rigorous hours of hunting. I also have the IIB collecting dust. But that's another story.

What about the MF with the old "double eagle" type bow handle? Do you know how Jerry made those handles? He bent them around a stump in his yard, giving them that distinctive shape. First were the plywood coils, and wires inside the shaft. Only coil size was 10 inch back then. Owing to when those detectors came out it's safe to say they found more CW relics than any brand/model before or since. Thanks for the post Chuck.

Another great picture of an old Nautilus. I bet it was a real arm breaker with that hoop over the box!
