Did any of you see the 'wierd' nautilus 'prototype' on ebay couple weeks ago?==well I bought it--of course it's disposable cause if quits it's just for parts-anyway I've had almost every nautilus ever made starting with plywood head serial number 0017-this weird machine works perfect-of course no manual or whatever but from using in past-just figure it out-never seen one like it- seems to be a first experimental 2ba??it's like a trash /house spot machine-high pitch ---extrme discriminate with great depth--it is like a fisher 1270--complete iron mask- but still picks up coins (including nickels) bullets-buttons etc at 10" with NO rusty nails small iron buckles--cant believe it in a nautilus--turn disc down a little so it 'chirps 'on the small rusty stuff-now bullet/buttons-a dime at 12"--weather been bad but I got get used this machine--it's nice---even with all that disc--4 lb solid shot at about 20"- only tried twice so far-paid $225 and $25 shipping-nice---Alan

I will chuck but have to get one my kids or granddaughter to do==I'm 55 and NOT all that computer smart--when weather allows I gonna take it in some old spots to see what up-it appears to work fine and I think it was intended to be a house site/trashy spot machine-nothing like any nautilus I ever had-but seriously you can discriminate all the little iron stuff and it still pick up the good==I mean like the little iron buckles about the size of a quarter--it nulls it out completely--and still get coins-relics-at a good 10-12 inches?? I know youre nearby -I'm in white oak and when good day we can meet and you welcome try it==Alan

I saw it, Jerry was definitely ahead of his time. No telling what he could have done in good health!

I do believe I know that detector. I would have gotten rid of it in 1989 or there about if it is in fact the one I had.
