    'Would that French gold be in coins or bar form? Good luck with getting a detector. Read a lot of reviews of the brands you are interested in before the purchase. I would get a pin-pointer as well. If you are close to tourist beaches it wouldn't take you long to pay for your machine. But I like searching the historical sites."


    I went ahead and ordered one. I dont know if it's any good. https://www.amazon.com/DR-%C3%96TEK-...08ZY3TJLC?th=1


    Not sure what form the French Gold is in. It was hastily buried and a map created, but the three springs which were one of the Markers, have long since dried up so no one has been able to pinpoint exactly where it is. The other markers included in the map have been found over the years. Without the three springs though its like a needle in a haystack.

    I figure Ill hit a beach here and there and look for gold rings and such.

    Looks like a good machine to learn the ropes. If you are beach hunting you may want to consider a sand sifter. There was link for one within your link for $16.99.

    I took it out over the weekend to an abandoned amusement park in the woods. This park was open from the late 1880s to the mid 1980s. I did t read the instructions so it was a bit confusing, but I realized fairly quickly that you need that little wand to pinpoint what the detector hit on.

    The rides are still standing at this old park and I am certain that there will be plenty of old coins to find.

    I hope you were lucky on your 1st. outing.

    I never had the pin pointer and did just fine....but it is a useful tool to speed things up.
