Well hooked on detecting!
« on: October 18, 2017, 04:13:44 PM »
I've had my detector a week now and only been out twice in a field i didn't expect to get anything from due to it's location. Anyway, today was my second time in the field and i found, a horseshoe, 2 shotgun cartridge ends, an old padlock, 5 bottle caps and my FIRST coin. I have no idea what the coin is, as it is covered in green stuff, so most likely copper, i have it soaking in Olive oil for now and will update once I can see more detail.
I can not post pictures, not sure why, so sorry will have to wait.

I am now really hooked on detecting and hope to see some of you on 22nd on organised digs.

Tony.

Hey Tony, you seem to be following the same path into this as as myself  ;D
You dig?

Another one taken over by the Nox!
