Several years ago I decided I would get a detector and had about $1000 budget. I bought a White's Spectrum XLT. I've found a few old pennies that the ground had almost eaten up, lots of pull tabs and scrap. I didn't spend a whole lot of time detecting but did go about a dozen times for half day over about 2 years.

I guess what I'm asking is did I get a decent detector for the money then and/or could I trade/sell this one and get a better machine now with little or no out of pocket expense.
Obama gets to have it both ways. He claims black from his father and American from his mother. Claiming to be a white Kenyan wouldn't get him very far though would it?
