I still buy one now and then if the price is right, still fun to use and still find stuff.
My favorites were the Dtex units, hard to find these in working order.



Nokta/Makro Anfibio-Multi, Makro Multi-Kruzer, and few others
Self built Mirage Pi's --- they work great in trashy areas!!

I like the mid to late 1980s metal detectors myself. I just picked up a Bounty Hunter 'Bud Lite' and Mark III. I mainly like them as they are analog and well built. No LCD to fade out or replace. Fun to use and with the aid of an audio amp...can still kick it with some of the new offerings. To get the deeper coins,I use the white 10" magnum coil.
Those D-Tex units always interested me. I'd love to find a Money King motion discriminator.

Yea...I got a few....the Money King Motion is quite Rare in the regular control box set up....I even got a few copies of the very Rare Money King Motion in the barely produced futuristic design..only a few were made...the ones that I got were show room models bought directly from the factory. I bought from the original owners.

I think that was the only D-Tex I ever owned.

I still have a modified Mark One, several non working Tek S/T’s

Both were two of my favorite all time machines to this day.

Mark One stock gave me tennis elbow and my S/T’s all failed

Detectors from the 80's and 90's is what I prefer.

Luv the ole Garrett Deep Seekers from early/mid 70's-----best sound---found dozens and dozens cannon balls and rifled projectiles with mine.

Amen. I owned the Garrett Deepseeker and found quite a few of my relics with it. These were rugged and built to last.....and did.
