This detector ring a bell? Anybody ever seen it or even used it? As far as I'm concerned, it is a vintage metal detector. However, it works just perfect. It just needs a new battery, and it can be taken out to be put to use.

I don't have no clue about this vintage metal detector. It only has two dials. The dial to the right is the volume dial. And, the dial to the left is.....well, I don't know. It just goes from 1 to 10. I just assumed it was sensitivity or discrimination.

Anyways, it is someone I have met a couple of days ago and they are a person willing to learn how to detect. This detector they bought, was bought new at a auction. They used it last winter, and found a nickel and a 1923 penny.

Any suggestions?

Thank you,
~Metal_Inspector~

Just the name "jetco" brings back memories.  My first detector was a Jetco Mustang.  If my memory is correct it only had one control and was only good for a couple inches of depth.  I sure had fun with it though.  Hopefully someone will chime in with info on your detector.

That's a old one for sure.

Sold for $69.95 back in 1971.

Not much info on it but not much to know either.

BFO, 10 Transistors according to the add in Deserts Magazine. 1971.....

Hell if it works, I would try it out on clean ground for Meteorites.

BFO being the dig it all machines they are, it makes no difference.    Eaaaaaa?

Well, like said before, it is better than anything.  That is nice to know about this detector though.  Thanks for the info.
