Up for auction is a Vintage Fisher M-90 (aka) 442 VLF Gold Prospecting Metal Detector 

*** NEW !!!  There is Now A Quick Demonstration Video    


Dave Johnson Chief Designer, of First Texas Products and Fisher Research Labs, acknowledged that the 442 vlf was repackaged as an industrial model. Technically, the M-90 is newer old stock so to speak. This machine was designed Specifically for Gold hunting in the early 70's. I have included two stock pictures of a 442 vlf for comparison only, one of the control box, and one of the coil. these pictures are for comparison only  


The Fisher M-90 ( 442 vlf ) Detector is a straight VLF/TR Machine, it has a coil that measures 8  inches, and is ideal if prospecting for Gold.


This detector requires 2 - 9 volt square batteries.



This is a USED detector, It Works, and Is in reasonable cosmetic condition. 

This is a sign of regular use, which means it was a GoTo  Detector.

Perfect for a Collector or Enthusiast. 


This detector has been tested with…

A 10K Gold mens wedding band,

A 10K Gold high school class ring,

A 1940 silver quarter,

A 1946 copper Wheat penny, with a hole drilled in it, ( I didn’t do it )

A 1943 Jefferson nickel that was run over by a train. ( I didn’t do this either )

A  1979 Kennedy Half Dollar
