I found a 150 for 60 bucks today at a pawn shop

It is my first detector. I am wanting a 250 but I figured for 60 bucks, I couldn't pass it up. It didn't come with a manual, what settings should I set it on for starting out?

The 150 is a turn on and go machine. Just turn it on and start hunting. Excellent price too. The 150 will help you find enough coinage to make your 250 free.

basically like said its a turn on a go, the 150 has 3 modes...all metal, jewelry and coin mode, which are 3 preset discriminations, so take your pick. the only other adjustment setting is the sensitivity. since the ace 150 has no pinpoint feature the X marks the spot method is used

$60 bucks for the 150 is a steal! That's a good starter detector. Just make sure you dig the pulltabs or you'll miss gold rings.
