I never understood why they did not make a US version with the 2 tone audio? Tesoro always just missed the boat it seemed maybe that one reason they went out of business.

At the time, urban Coin Hunting was still very popular here in the USA, but in Europe they were hunting the plowed fields and pastures, thus the Euro Sabre name. They tried it over there with the 8X9 Concentric coil but it didn't go over very well. So, they targeted the USA market and tried to key in on Relic Hunters, but in doing so there were at least two errors. One was not changing the name, the other was offering it with the bigger-size coil, and in dense ferrous contaminated sites that wasn't the smart move.

The concept wasn't bad, but the effectiveness of the Iron Audio wasn't at the level we see today with the digital circuitry. On the right idea, just not brought up to more modern standards at the time.
