Time to let this one go. It's been a good one for me. In nice shape overall. I converted it to LiPo battery recently (in the fall), because my old rechargeable was shot. The LiPo is lighter and runs much longer. Also, they are cheap (around $15). Comes with a Turnigy E3 compact charger to charge the LiPo. I never had the AA battery packs for it.
The control box is in nice shape as is the original Coinsearch coil. Coil cover is cracking along edge and not staying on very well. Has some scratches and dings here and there. I got the meter off another Sov and it works great, but has a crack in the "visor" part above the readout (see pics). Seems solid though. Has black textured tape around number readout - possibly covering a crack or something?
