Default RS Discovery 1000

After my quick hunt today, meet my best friend for lunch. got to talking about life and just catching up. On the way home I remembered that I had a MD years ago. Got to looking in the shed and found this. I don't think I ever used it. Put in some batteries and it turned on just fine. I just downloaded and printed the manual to learn how to operate it. It probably is a blast from the past for some.

I can't remember getting it and pretty sure I've never used it.

Rebranded Bounty hunter 101. They actually work well but only 4-5” depth.

Set it to tone mode and adjust the dial to where a nickel sounds like a good low tone. Purchase a 4” coil and take it out and have some fun.
I own 2 of them with multiple coil sizes. It is my go to fun machine.

A good example that detectors last a long time and still work just fine.

Thanks for the info on the settings. Been busy at work today and haven't been able to read the manual yet.

but there are some goodies at 4 - 5". found a 1964 quarter in that depth range.

what does the meter indicate on that RS 1000? low numbers for junk and high number for silver coins?

It sure looks like from the picture it has all the necessary features for a decent metal detector.

I can understand about that being a fun machine. The 800 often seems like work not fun.
