Second, you need a metal detector. If you do not own one but you want to purchase a detector, do not spend a lot of money. A good, new metal detector can be purchased for between $350 - $450. You don’t need a detector with all of the bells and whistles either. Those are for the more advanced user. If you purchase a less expensive model, and then read the owners manual, as well as practice using it, you will find your fair share of goodies.
