A friend of mine has a Vanquish and I have a Simplex Both are really good starters even for adults. Both run around $250 but most dealer will discount. If you can find a fisher Cz which is an analog its a good coin hunter. Better on nickels than some of these high priced dudes. Best

Cjm, I have two Eurotech Pro's that I bought for my grandchildren. They used them maybe 3 times and naturally lost interest. Ask some detectorists that know metal detectors and I think you will be pleasantly surprised. First time out my youngest ( 6 or7) found an Indian head within minutes after leaving the truck. I think it would be great for another grandchild to use one. If interested, call me at 478-982-1902, 50 miles south of Augusta, Ga. I don't do well with computers so I need a call.

Hi...
Not sure if this is too late but both minelab and Smithsonian has a couple simple entry detector for kids and young people.
I think they start at $70 and go to $115 they are like 5 to 7mhtz and built sturdy.
Hope this helps

The minelab is called go-find. There are a few different models. Also, I made a mistake on the other suggestion. I said Smithsonian but after checking...I realized that was not the one I was thinking of.. its the National Geographic detectors I meant to list for your grand kids.

Once again, hope this has helped.
