How does one tell the difference between the older ones and the newer ones.

Do you mean the round 8 inch concentric coils?

Easiest way is to go on Amazon and search for the Bounty Hunter Lone Star

That should bring up a page with the top two being....

#1 The "Bounty Hunter Lone Star Pro" (7.7khz new model)

#2 The "Bounty Hunter Lone Star" (6.6khz old model)

If you look at both of the coils....they look identical other then the bottom below the coil ears where the rod attaches.

The older 6.6khz models have a flare to them that points outwards or side-to-side....while the newer 7.7khz models do not and go more up and down.

The older models also have smaller support beams at the 10 and 2 positions. The newer models are much thicker.

Yup, My Bounty Hunter Legacy 3500 came from the factory with a 8" concentric Teknetics coil. I didn't realize it until I tried buying a coil cover for it.

The George Payne Bounty Hunter coils of the mid to late 1980s had a push and twist plastic connector. As did the big box Teknetics. They were interchangeable.
The First Texas Bounty Hunter coils that came later have a push in connector. These later coils will work with the GP 1980s BHs. Simply push in the connector.
