Best to get one brand new. I sold my second hand one for about $830 which was more than I paid for it when the $A was about 1.20 US.
They hold there value, so there just aren't second hand ones for $500.

That's good to know as I am the one thinking of selling mine as I have only used it twice and have come to the conclusion that I wont get to use it much and would rather get myself a beach detector.

They are about 900 USD new in the States.
You know what you paid for it so 800+ AUD sounds fair to me although They are not as desirable here as they used to be which could bring it down a bit.

I reckon $50 postage is a bit hopeful. 4.8lb shipping weight in a 22 x 12 x 6" box. Cheapest I can find works out to USD$68.50

There is a supposedly new one on ebay Australia at the moment however the sellers name and feedback score doesn't inspire confidence in the item's authenticity.
