How many still use a vintage classic detector from the 70's-80's?


Well-known member
While I dont still use one . I once owned a Whites' coin master 6000D. I believe thats what it was. Had the big blue metalic box curved handle with a black button on the handle tip. Here is a pic of the last really good find I made with it. Almost 30 years ago. I gave the machine to my brother in law and dont know if he still has it. But I found this in Suffield , CT. in the front yard of a big colonial farm house . The property had been unused and uninhabited for many years before I got there. It was about 6" deep . I thought it was a toy at first . Until I held it and cleaned it up. It is a Smith Wesson revolver from the 1850's. Name and patent dates are on the sight guide on top of the barrel and very legible. Tried to get them in the photo but couldnt get my phone to focus in that close. It has a rosewood handle grip and still has a lot of the chrome plating left on it. Enjoy.

I've got a CZ7 as well. that thing can get really deep on the beach. I was surprised at the depth we were getting with that thing. Hang in there. I hope your back will heal up for you soon.
My first "grown up" metal detector was a CZ7a, and I remember it picking up really deep signals, getting great battery life, and finding every deep bottle cap that was ever thrown away. It was a really nice machine but it sure loved bottle caps. Happy detecting and Best Wishes.
I've got a Fisher 1265X, have not used it in a couple of years
