I just started using this detector and I like it quite a bit. My best find
was a 1920 nickel at about 6 inches. This detector bounces a little bit and
gives some false hits, but you can tell the difference. I also found a 1913
Palmer gardenglo compact made of solid copper at about 7 inches. The ground
was sand and it was very uneven and wet from rain, do not use near electric
wires it beeps within 10 feet of them.
Max Depth: 7 inches on US quarter

Bounty Hunter - 1st Detector
March 09, 2013
I'm new to this so I can't compare against other detectors. I recently
purchased a Bounty Hunter Challenger detector at a garage sale for the
price of $20. Took it home, replaced the batteries, and within the first
30 minutes I found two pennies, one silver dime, a gold ear ring, an
antique lipstick case, and a Woodmen of the World copper token, and a whole
lot of trash.
This is really cool and has got me hooked. As for the detector, I just
can't say enough. It's very easy to figure out, simple to use, and has
made a believer out of this beginner. Thanks Bounty Hunter!
