How Much Does a Metal Detector Cost?

A metal detector is an electronic device that can respond to metal that is not detectable by the human eye.  Using an oscillator, the metal detector will produce a current that can measure metallic objects.

Invented in the early 1960s, a metal detector can detect things such as weapons, coins, jewelry or anything else made of a metal-like material.  They are commonly used on beaches where people check for lost jewelry and money, and it can also be used by historians to find artifacts and other things of value.  The cost of one is going to depend on the brand, the type, features and where it’s purchased from.
