Well hit up a location on the old maps listed as "Railway purposes" ive seen a few times while driving around a town in the wheatbelt but was way to overgrown to detect. Lucky now the shire has been in a mowed or wipper snipped it. We have been making some really good finds as i think it was the location of the stationmasters house.
In total 4 really old padlocks oldest dated to 1890's-1910 and others up to 1930's
Also got a musket ball , coins and the standout find a GSRY's (1886-1896) reversible tag. Lots more there but its been brutal hot so can only get a few hours in a time.

Well had a look at the permission site ( golf club founded 1905) sadly finds were way to and far between and it was way too hot so we will be giving that spot a miss.
One odd find there was a total of 55 20c pieces all in one hole. All dated 1966-1970 , no wavy 1966's though.

Well while driving around i spotted an area i missed in my research, one problem was i forgot my pin pointer and i left a load of good deeper targets behind and only dug shallow hi tones. Some nice finds and load more there for next time....
