A sterling poodle and wireless pinpointer

May 11, 2018
I had a short hunt on my flea market site late in the afternoon today.  My ACE 300 detector was acting up and going nuts with weird signals but it finally settled down.  I had some good strong signals that got me excited only to find they were "Dirty Harry" 357 Magnum shells - and also some big brass screws.

The only interesting finds were this tiny silver poodle that tests as 925 sterling and weighs in at about .5 oz.  I like it!

And this very tiny cloisonné Odd Fellows Lodge(?) pin:

The big news for me is that I got a shipping confirmation for the brand new, just released Garrett Pro-Pointer AT Pinpointer with Z-Lynk.  I pre-ordered it a week or so ago.

This cool new pinpointer is the first one to have wireless capability.  The flea market site is right next to a busy road with loud trucks and it's hard to hear signals.  If I use my wired headphones on my ACE 300 detector then I can't hear my cheap GP pointer and have to go by "feel" as it vibrates.   Once I get the wireless Z-Lynk headphones and adapter for my detector, I'll be able to use BOTH with the wireless headphones.  Very cool!
