RE: How to make money using a metal detector
@ Jay

Great question. Yes, that was one of my mistakes early on. I would drive past an old park or old homestead and think how great it would be to hunt in those places. But, your spending all day finding foil, nails and bottle caps etc. Don't get me wrong I have found some nice coins and relics but, it was not worth the hundreds of hours I wasted. If your going to do that. You need to learn how to find and read old maps.

Example: Find a map of your area, say 1880. Now find another map of your area say 1950. Locate the houses that were present in 1880 but not present in 1950. Now, try to locate those old foundations. This way your not digging up modern junk. Its not as hard as you think.

To answer your question about a certain type of detector. The answer is no.
