I moved back to the countryside last year. Having a bit more time on my hand now, I asked a local farmer if it would be ok to detect on his land and he said yes. I've been out with my Coinmaster 6/DB a couple of times and found a post war florin and a couple of what I think are George III half pennys (both in the same hole, both very worn).
I have found the 6/DB very heavy, and has a few faults now. So I need a replacement. I guess things have moved on a lot. I don't have a huge budget. I was thinking of a Whites Coinmaster ?

Detectors these days do have the GEB (Ground Excluding Balance) feature but in all cases they're much more effective than they once were and can be manual or automatically set (tracking) so simplifying the task.
A good dealer, apart from giving sound advice, will also hold a selection of second hand detectors which usually carry a 3 month guarantee for your peace of mind. I would warn against buying from 'that auction' as it is always a risk!
