Now I can start my shopping since I couldn't contact any individuals or dealers to do my 'end-of-year shopping' to add three of my favorite former favorite detectors.

Yes, I'll use them but I just wanted them for personal reasons. The winning prize package will be sent to the WINNER in Canada ... 'Druid'.

Now, Drew didn't get the detectors right on his first guess. Matter of fact, it took him several tries, and he shot several guesses my way more than anyone else. Like detecting, persistence was the winning result.

What detectors and coils am I going after? Here you go:

A Tesoro INCA w/7" Concentric coil. That's all I mainly used on the Inca and it rewarded me well and helped me make the switch to 85% of my time Relic Hunting. I still hit urban sires with it, successfully, but it was all the ghost towns, dance halls, out-of-use old Picnic Groves and similar places that drew my attention and gave up a lot of good old coins and trade tokens.

The 2nd detector I really enjoyed and will look for is the White's MX-5 w/6" and open-frame 9" Concentric coils. Why, some might wonder? Because after switching to the Nokta FORS CoRe in January of '15 as my primary-use Relic Hunting detector, I stared selling off or trading just about every other detector I had, but ....

I still kept doing some urban Coin Hunting and the most fun and most versatile unit for that was the MX-5. Not only was it a really good Coin & Jewelry Hunting detector, but with that 6" coil it matched or bettered the performance of my M6 or MXT Pro with the same coil and in a better-balanced design.

The 3rd model I'll contact a Dealer for, and that is the Nokta Impact w/5" DD & 7" Concentric coils. Why? Because I really liked the Selectable Single-Frequency design and mode selection, I found it to perform well and be comfortable to use, and I don't need the waterproof design of the models released since the Impact.

All three of these models were favorites of mine and provided me with decent performance for both urban Coin & Jewelry Hunting as well as Relic Hunting the often Iron Nail and other debris-challenged old sites I enjoy.

Well, there it is. The answers and reasons I plan to do some end-of-year shopping. Other than the pending Nokta / Makro SMF, which I will get, I will be done detector-buying once I add these three desired set-ups. With what I have now and these three devices, I will be good-to-go at anytime to head anywhere ---- and have Fun.
