Doing very well mate, top finds. Seems around here people wear their silver jewellery once and then throw it away. lol Nice and chunky that larger ring.

Oh yeah, forgot to say, the foil trick works great on silver jewellery also if you get any that won't clean up with just bi-carb paste. Nice ring that Turquoise one also. I gave the small Turquoise one I found last week to my girlfriend after a clean up with the foil and citric acid, it looks great.

Everyone around here must have slippery fingers lol I haven't seen a pre dec. silver for a while but these make up for it smile
As of last night my gold coin only total is $914 so it has definately paid for itself since I got it in March.
The fat wave looking ring the insert spins around on it.

I've had some poor hunts lately, 3 nights ago I pulled $30 in goldies, next night $2.10, scrap metal and 2&1c pieces but scratched the 1/2 penny, Last nights hunt $1, a 925 ring and 2&1c. The ring was the last target which was on the walk home on a little dirt path. 1470889980_ddddddd_007.jpg

B5Mech, Wish you luck finding a 1946 Penny. smile
We used to go for a swing after nightshift, found heaps of coins but was never lucky with any jewellery.
You've got me thinking about getting back into it.

Cheers mate.


Happy Hunting, Nightjar.

I'm stuck with no licence til next year so all the surrounding parks are getting hoovered, it is a good area to be in for coin shooting so by next year hopefully I'll own a MINELAB to get out to the gold fields, Most of the pre decs in areas are pretty toasted but some still come out good.
At the moment I seem to find more jewellery than pre decs. but I'm sure they will show up again soon.

Yep, coins turn up in the most unlikely places.
Hit a spot in the WA goldfields, nearest town 80km's away, swung the 45 over nice mellow target, out came 2.5g nugget. Not 20 metres away another signal, and thoughts immediately through my head, "I'm onto a patch" wink out popped a 1923 Threepence.
Rest of the day chaining the area and not another target, not even rubbish.


Happy Hunting, Nightjar.

I'm pretty sure Silver used to use the vinegar and salt method for coins that were crusty like that, takes a few days in the solution I think.
