SURF meets TURF today on the beach ...1791 Glasgow trade token
« on: September 09, 2016, 05:54:58 PM »
Hi folks ,

Spent a few hours on a local beach this morning with my buddy Roadrunner (Les) and had the pleasure to bump into a couple of members Woodwynd

(Alan) and Norry . Great to meet these members and have a chat about detecting in general . Sadly the beach was still sanded in for us all and any finds

were very deep in the wet sand .

I still managed to scoop 2 x silver Viccy Sixpences (1895 and 1897 ) Viccy halfpennies , penny , shilling and other coinage . My best finds of the day

 was an intact RAF sweetheart brooch , found just as the guys were leaving and my best find of the earlier that day

    1791 Glasgow Halfpenny Trade token .

Beaten off the beach by the tides and on returning home logged onto the laptop to research the token , only to have received a message from

Woodwynd  identifying the find and an attached link ...... Many thanks woodynd , and a pleasure to meet you and Norry  !!!!!

SURF meets TURF      .... detectorists all ...........the same passion shared  !!!!!

Cant post pics in this forum , think Ive maybes mentioned that before   lol    ......  like other newbies have similarly recently expressed the same problem


GL and HH all

Thanks Alan , chuffed for you getting your first hammy , well done mate

Hopefully bump into you and Norry again . We are all detectorists who share the same passion , and always learning our respective crafts , willing to share our

gleaned knowledge of our experiences in each sphere of detecting .

Id hope that you and others would likewise advise me in the turf as I would assist anyone in the surf , showing and pointing to the "good spots " waving  newbies to

join me in a productive patch , even to the detriment of my own beach hunt . Watching that inexperienced beach detectorist wildly swinging around me to see

them finding their first beach coin ( probably just Victorian  lol  ) or silver/gold is the buzz for me . and their glee is enough  .makes my day .

Be great to meet up again Alan / Norry ... its not anyones machines at fault , its when the beach conditions are right and you know where to try  !!!

As said to you and Norry , I can only comment on beach stuff within the Forum  , and post only  within the confines of the Beach Detecting section .... as the

members turf finds are way more historical etc  in comparison to beach finds . and any input from someone in awe of each and every finds would be just

cluttered comments .

May give it another sweep with Les on Thursday

GL and HH to all
