Hello, I am 70 yrs old and just bought my first metal detector 2 weeks ago. I don't know why it took so long. I figure I have perhaps 10 good years left, so I figure I better get busy and find some treasure, along with some hidden trash.

My new detector is a Garrett Ace 200. It seems to work as advertised. Just hunting in my back yard down on the beach area by the river, in around 2 hours searching I've found 2 clad dimes, a new nickel and two pennies. Oldest coin 1996. Also two sardine cans, a pull tab, and several nails, and some wire. So, I figure it is working pretty good. I've done numerous air tests and I have to believe it's an okay machine.

When I ordered my ACE200, I also ordered a Makro pin pointer. Spent almost as much on the PP as the MD. I am glad I did. Everything I found I've used the PP. Pretty quick recovery. In my short MD career, I am a firm believer in a good PP.

My tools are a Wilcox 10" trowel hand digger, and a Lesche T-handle 31" shovel, serrated on one side. At $15.00 to my door, the Wilcox is pretty decent. However, I already see a Lesche trowel in my bag.

Anyways, I look forward to searching this forum for some good reading. Thanks for having me.

Welcome to the findmall forum!'s never too late to treasure hunt!
That garrett you have is a great machine!
Sounds like you are getting used to it pretty fast. Good for you!
I borrowed my sisters ace 200 and i was really impressed with it...found a 1929 mercury dime and a old amusement. Park token with it
My first time out with it.....matter of fact ....because i liked it so well
I ended up asking santa for a garrett at pro for the garretts real well
And don't let anybody fool you about these garretts...i've. Seen alot of great treasure
Found with them....i live in Indiana and always turning up some good old coins and jewelry.

Anyways. Welcome... You can also find alot of great folks and their interesting stories of their finds
On the garrett section of the you probably already know.
And as always......
Happy Hunting!
