Gold in the park ?

shite yeah, both Kato and myself have found gold rings and chains, she has missed a few things of silver because she doesnt dig if she thinks its junk
she has a CTX3030, me an Ace250, but I have always maintained that you dig everything unless you are chasing a particular thing,
then you discriminate everything else out and focus.

If you are finding silver coins, look for gold too.
Maybe no one has done that area and you will get a surprise.

AND YES its a bugger gold is alongside of 'pull tabs' sad on the scale.

You are still smashing it dude. thumbsup

I braved the rain and mud for hunt #25,

Came up with a few goldies, a strange green metal ball, a key, some coppers and a sixpence big_smile again only 50% but silvers silver!

I seem to remember I already found this year but I'll have to break out the coin album later and check, will always be good for the obverse thumbsup

DSA, where did you get the album from please ? Kato would like one of those.

Do they come in English for the early pennies etc. ?

Hey guys sorry for late reply,

The album came with the mintage numbers and years etc.

I got mine from here - https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/162262986299

Mines a compete coin album, so 1910 to 2016.

But you can get just pre decimal 1910-1966 if that's what floats your boat

No slots for English pennies, but you can add your own sleeves and add some if that's what you wanted, the seller sells extra sheets and extension posts for the folder.

Abit price but nice quality, I love mine. smile

Two silvers actually woo hoooo thumbsup

I don't know what the brown/black marks are, don't want to budge. I usually just put abit of vinegar on a tooth brush and brush them clean. They don't want to go though.

And oh yeah, another bloody 1951, I know for sure this time I already have that year tongue it's all good though I needed a George obverse for the album!

Cheers!

1519210483_b1d8fd4c-10a9-4cd6-8d82-30d5a786dc5c.jpgDTSA. Nice finds mate, they cleaned up very well.

Having a play in the backyard tonight with the Gold Monster and picked up a 1948 sixpence - so my first silver find!

It is in pretty good nick - probably just needs a bit of a soak for a few days in lemon juice as the Bandit suggested.

Perhaps you want to fill your album with your own finds but you are more than welcome to this one if you want it? Coins aren't my thing wink

I really appreciate the offer mate, but I do want to fill the album with my finds.
Thanks very much, very generous offer but I must decline

No troubles mate, I certainly understand. There is something to be said for setting a goal and reaching it yourself.

Keep the finds coming, they are fun posts to check in on thumbsup

Just realized today's 1951 is marked PL = London mint, so I might of had the year but my other was Melbourne!

Guess the George obverse will have to wait big_smile

Went out for hunt #27 this morning,

I walked down to a park I saw on google maps with a secondary back up near by, both of them were way too manicured for me to detect there, would just be asking for trouble even though they're reserves not sports fields.

Decided to carry on walking down to Brighton beach and have a swing there. I'm not the biggest fan of beach detecting, targets are few and far inbetween, so after a good 2-3 km I gave up on the beach and hit up google maps again for another close by park.

Walked there and it was no longer a park.... back onto google maps and found another close by one, got there and had a swing and it was remarkably clear of targets so I decided to call it a day and head home.

13km and not much to show for it

Until next time thumbsup
