    Another day, another dollar... found with the detector!

    My mate and I headed out to a spot I've had some success with in the past, whilst we didn't find many predecs, the one I found was 1800s and silver and that always makes the drive worth it.

    Beach finds from today. 

    Not my first watch, but certainly the first functioning one!

    Last weekend was the first weekend of real spring weather.  Sunshine and warm enough to go to the beach!

    Whilst I did go to the beach and came home $4 richer, I did visit a couple of spots before I hit the sand.  Here are the finds... and facts!

    When original plans change and your day suddenly becomes free, what do you do?  You arrange with your mate to go metal detecting of course!  After some research we decided to visit a pathway alongside a creek.  Amongst the loads of trash and a few ammunition casings, a...

    Metal detecting haul.  9:30am - about 4:00pm.  The weather was forecast to be absolutely awful, but fortunately it held off for us!  Just shy of $23 in modern coins, sadly only one pre-decimal but a few interesting relics!

    Overall haul.

    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...

    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.

    Recently I discovered an area that appears to be somewhat untouched by a person swinging a coil, I have managed to pull a few old coins out of there including my first florin.  I did find another penny from 1962, but it was quite mangled and I never bothered to clean i...

    Back at the honey hole, for want of a better phrase.  I found these coins in the same general area as the 1917 florin.  

    At the end of this blog there is video footage of the finds.  

    Straight out of the hole, 1863 half penny
