May 2017 Specials

May is a special month. The winter months are past. The April showers have brought May flowers. The leaves are out, and birds are building nests for their young. All nature seems to rejoice for the coming of spring. It's a wonderful time to get out and enjoy the beauty around you. It's a perfect time to take your detector with you before the weeds overwhelm you. Get out! Go! Go! Go!

May is also a good time to check out your unit, and come in for accessories (or a new detector) you need for the year. Are you okay on sand scoops, batteries, coil covers, pinpointers, etc.? Stop in and see us, and remember to bring your May Coupon with you. Hope to see you soon!

1 Retirement Sale on Numerous New Metal Detectors:
We have only one remaining detector left on many models, except in cases where we overstocked and have more. We must sell out to the walls, so are offering these at or below our cost. When they are gone, they're gone and will not be reordered. All units are perfect, and will be shipped in the original boxes. Some are currently on display, but will be placed back into their boxes. These are some great bargains that you won't find anywhere else.

Gold Mountain "Boss" VLF/TR Discriminator$89.95

The literature I have on the company say that the Gold Mountain brand of metal detectors was established in 1972 by Bill Mahan, and was produced in Garland, Texas, the home of Garrett Metal Detectors. A 1975 Garrett catalog shows six models of Gold Mountain metal detectors, and notes that Gold Mountain was a subsidiary of Garrett Electronics. Later Garrett catalogs make no mention of Gold Mountain detectors. Some parts were probably purchased from Garrett, as the lower rod is identical to that found on Garrett Groundhogs. Numerous models of Gold Mountain metal detectors were made in the 1970's and 1980's.

I tested out the "Boss" for about ten minutes in a grassy area, and located two coins. There is no instruction manual, but the field test included from Western & Eastern Treasures gives the operating instructions.

Included with this detector is a collection of Gold Mountain literature showing many models, including the following:

  1. Gold Mountain full color catalog showing 7 models.
  2. Gold Mountain full color catalog showing 6 models.
  3. Gold Mountain folder showing 6 models.
  4. Reprint of the May 1977 evaluation of "Gold Mountain Treasure Spy" from "Treasure Magazine".
  5. Field test of the Gold Mountain "Boss".
  6. Other miscellaneous Gold Mountain ephemera.

3 Pre-Owned Detectors:
About 75 to choose from. We will soon be listing a number of these units individually at real bargain prices.

With all these great units, we include free Garrett accessories in May. They are our most popular lower-priced detectors. These are improved versions of the popular Ace 150, 250, and 350.

5 XP Deus Wireless Metal Detector:
These lightweight wireless detectors have excellent depth and superior target separation. They're a joy to use! With each unit sold, we include "The Deus Handbook" by Andy Sabisch, an emergency charger, and XP Deus cap. Come in for a demonstration.

6 Gray Ghost Underwater Headphones:
For AT Pro and AT Gold, these are great headphones with clearer response on deep targets. They are very comfortable, and are a good choice for both land and water use. I recommend them. 2 years warranty. May special $150.00 (list $165.00).

7 Garrett ProPointer AT:
$134.95 ($149.95 value). This Garrett pinpointer is submersible to 10 feet. It offers the option of operating it with both audio and vibration, or with vibration only. Both modes of operation offer three levels of sensitivity. Its orange color (affectionately called the Garrett Carrot) makes the pinpointer easier to find if left at the last place you used it. Garrett ProPointers are the favorite pinpointers in America. I never detect without one. They cut recovery time down to half or less. The black water resistant Garrett ProPointer II is on sale for $110.45 ($129.45 value).

8 Garrett Z-Lynk Wireless System:
May special: $134.95.

$39.95, or just $34.95 with purchase of a new detector (list price $49.94). Hardened tool steel Lesche Digging Tools are a must for the detectorist. These are American-made in New Jersey. Two metal detector companies brought out similar digging tools that are made in China and Taiwan. Don't trust them. Buy American!

10 Padded Carrying Bags:

11 "American Digger" and "North South Trader" Magazines:
$2.00 off on all back issues up through Volume 12. Buy 10 or more of these back issues at the same time, and pay only $3.95 each! What issues do you need? Time to complete your collection?
