Howdy! i foind the Gold Bug 1 at a local thrift store. I am curious if the coil’s waterproof and if it’s worth $50…? To be used for placer detecting. Thanks Jim
The GB 1 was manufactured with a waterproof coil, but knowing it’s an older machine it’s hard to comment on the condition. Maybe just take a good look at it and seal up any cracks or holes with gasket seal. If it works $50 is a great deal. Lots of gold has been found with the GB 1.
