Due to my sister company, Marilyn's Medical Freedom, closing its doors and going out of business, Jim's Metal Detectors will be forced to close till I can find another place to move in to. For the time being, 270-519-0697 still works and I can still buy and sell.
I regret this unfortunate turn of events but don't forget me and I'll post up-dates as they happen.


Welcome! I hope you take the time to look around a bit and then call me up and chat. A little background on myself is in order here - I've been treasure hunting since 1970 and 45 years (and counting) later I still love to swap stories with fellow enthusiasts.
My first detector was an inexpensive kit from Radio Shack as I recall, it wasn't very strong and had no discriminator but I found some stuff. My next detector was a Compass followed by a Daytona then a Garrett then a couple of Fisher's. Down through the years I've had and used most brands and have been successful with them all.
Now that my health and business ventures prevent me from hunting as much as I'd like I still get to visit with people who love the hobby as much as I do.
One day I put an ad in a local paper searching for anyone interested in forming a club and the West KY Treasure Preservation Society was formed and 2016 marks our 6th year. We sponsor a club hunt each October that keeps getting larger each year. Anyone interested in coming to a meeting to check us out is welcome. We meet the first Thursday evening of each month at 7pm here at my store.

I'm still new at selling detectors so I hope you'll give me a chance to win your business. Its hard to compete with the internet but I try and accept trade-ins and it doesn't have to be metal detectors. I've been known to take other items in on trade AND I have a lay-away plus 12 months same as cash on purchases over $800.00 (subject to credit approval from Personal Finance Company). One thing the internet doesn't offer is letting you take a detector off the wall and play with it first.
Hope to see you soon and thanks for stopping by.

I also try to keep some pinpointers such as the ProPointer, the ProPointer AT, the Uni-Probe and the Fisher Pin Pointer, also some Lesche products.

I accept cash, check, Visa, MC and Discover.

This detector folds down to a small size that could be stowed in a back pack etc and wouldn't take up much room on a vacation when space is at a premium.
Impressive machine for the money.
               Here are some club members with some nice finds.

Our local club, the West KY Treasure Preservation Society was hired to look for a buried treasure some time back, we were offered $100.00 if we found it. I asked what it was and the man said it was a 5 gallon bucket of ammo, that he had buried it in his yard but didn't draw a map. I agreed and after work one Saturday some club members and myself went and found it for him. Below is a photo of me beside one of the buckets. (there turned out to be two) He refused to open either of them while we were there so we still don't know what treasure they contained but there has been a lot of speculation among the club members ever since.

As I mentioned I will consider taking trades on metal detectors and if you happen to have either a working Daytona or Compass I'd like to trade you out of either of them but I'd prefer that they work ok. [of course I'll consider them even if they don't work as long as they look good] The Compass had a meter with the needle centered in the middle and would deflect to the left if the target was bad and to the right if it was good. It was grey as I recall. The Daytona was a narrow box detector and had no meter.

Most old detectors I have no use for but these would be nostalgic for me.


 Meets first Thursday evening at 7pm at Lebanon United Methodist Church, Eileen Street off Old Mayfield Rd.
Paducah, KY  42003
call 270-519-0697 for directions.
