My first field trip with the Adelaide Treasure Hunters Club (which I joined during the week). We went to Largs beach. Sadly I didn't find any treasure (pirate or other) but I did find 55c in spendables. After the field trip I went back to a spot I'd had some success at once before and found a few more pre decimals. The coppers didn't fare so well in the soil but the one silver I found was in pretty good shape. 1948 three pence Reverse Obverse 1942 half penny Reverse Obvers
This morning I did some scouting for new places to go metal detecting as I've pretty much hunted out my old spot. I stumbled across this little beauty in one of the places I was checking out, it's a King William IV 1834 shilling and my oldest silver coin to date. Straight out of the hole, reverse side.
