It will be interesting if you can tune to a 'Null' and have a left and right adjustment from there for a Threshold audio setting to respond to Metal (Coin) or Mineral (Nail) targets. I have a feeling it might not because there was no suggestion in print by the Tuner control, unless it was an offering that only had that in print in an Operator Manual. Then, it just might not work properly at all due to bad components in the main circuitry or a search coil related issue.

I have six 'old' detectors right now that look very good to little used, to include my Compass Yukon 99B and Coin Hustler that date to the mid-'70s, a Garrett Hunter BFO that dates to the latter '60s and a Garrett Money Hunter TR-Disc. and Master Hunter TR-Disc. from '76/'77, and a Teknetics Mark I Ltd. (the 'red' version) made in '86. I also have one of my favorite 'simple' TR-Disc. models, a Garrett American S2, that works great except for one component that functions with the retune button in the handle. I'll find someone who can track that glitch down and repair it for me.

Having a working old detector, one that works properly, can be fun to have on-hand. I have these mainly to sort through what I want around or doing seminars. But since I am 'thinning the herd' this year I plan to sell the Compass Yukon 99B, the Garrett Hunter BFO, and Money Hunter TR-Disc., and the Teknetics Mark I Ltd. All of them look really good and work as they should, so someone ought to enjoy them.
