Over Half a Century of Metal Detecting

Stu Auerbach learned how to operate army mine detectors in the United States Army and became fascinated with the possible civilian uses of metal detectors. He purchased surplus military mine detectors and used them on a nearby beach in Miami Florida to see what he might find.

"It was a bonanza of coins, rings, jewelry,
keys and other metal objects".

Auerbach soon drew crowds of people each time he went to the beach wanting to see what he was finding even today, most (beach) treasure hunters are more than familiar with this phenomenon.

When people asked him where they could get a machine like his, Auerbach was quick to sell that he had in his car, and a business selling metal Detectors was born that later became Kellyco Metal Detectors, the largest retailer of metal detectors in the world.
