Any information on this detector. It uses 3 9volt batteries. It has been in the family for several years. I will Google C & G. If I find anything. I will report here.

The G stands for Gifford the man who started Tesoro. The Lynx is a pre-Tesoro unit. There was a mention of a "Wildcat" unit.
It uses a "stacked" coil. This results in a coil more than double in thickness than todays units. The failure was from a lack of
money for advertising. It was not one of the "better" units in finding coins. This from Google.

C&G Technology Inc. was started in Phoenix Arizona by Ray Crum and Jack Gifford back in 1976. I picked up an old "closet queen" C&G Bobcat II years ago on the cheap just out of curiosity and it still fires up powered by two 9-volt batteries. Mine also used the "stack coils" and still functions but noticed last time in use I had to constanly hit the retune button on the handle every sweep to keep in on track...probably needs a little doctoring. Ha!

I remember seeing them advertised. But Whites, Fisher, and Garrett way-out -sold them. At least where I'm at, we never saw anyone swinging that brand.

Many thanks to you that responded to my search. Maybe a MD museum would like it.

Probably not too many out there as C&G ceased business in 1978...soon after Jack Gifford accepted a job working for Fisher in Los Banos, Ca. I've read where the entire Gifford family use to help with production of C&G detectors....Jack and Ray Crum did the designing and testing...Myrna (Jack's wife) stuffed boards and made coils...while sons James and Vince did numerous production related tasks. Another part of the overall evolution of metal detector history :>)
