Vince Migliore is a researcher and technical writer with a keen interest in metal detecting. He's written for numerous magazines, including W&E Treasures and is former editor of a hobbyist newsletter. "I bought a detector back in 1982, and in the first 5 minutes I found an Indian Head penny dated 1881 - right in my own front yard! Since then I've been hooked." You'll be hooked too, when you see how great this sport is for your physical fitness, your appreciation of natural science, and most of all for the wealth of treasures you can find. Learn the key concepts of metal detecting in Chapter 3: How to buy a metal detector.
