The results from a North Sydney 9m2 triangle shaped patch of grass, would like to know what is under the concrete, ashphalt and paving.

Does make you wonder how many valuable coins had originally been lost on dirt streets pre-aspalt, especially outside all the old inns/pubs. Surely would have been a few gold coins lost by drunkards. Good when you can find a small undetected area overlooked by others, many of them are in plain site and often ignored. smile

I know you will give it your best shot Wally.
I would like to be able to get under some of those old wooden floors at The Rocks, that would be magic.

Got away up the coast on the weekend, the weather was lousy and family activities were put on hold for a couple of hours.

Had to see if there is any truth to the statement, big swells pay well.

Here you go guys, needed to find my magnifying glass to work out if I had two silvers or two golds.

1. Decorative 925 silver ring, missing stone (will have to cab up a small star sapphire to suit)

2. 9ct yellow gold wedding band

3. Unstamped, pulled out of the gravel wash in an untarnished state. roll (not sure how to test content)

So....soccer night is silver night. big_smile

1528888325_85984265-4295-4b85-8cd1-d697c0f7cfac.jpg

Went for another swing while No.1 lad had soccer practice. Decided to run the NoX in my “quick kill - good stuff” programme to see if I could identify a new, old patch.

The walk across the grass car parking areas was slowed down with gold and copper, with one out of place head amongst them. Once the fuel account was topped up, I made my way to a more remote part of the reserve and sniffed out my first silver sixpence and was pleased to hit a couple of others within a 20m area before the lad came to remind me we had to head home. ops

Happy to report that a young lady made its way into my pouch. lol the other side will need a clean before it is presentable, but I can say that it comes from the year that Karl Benz patents the first successful gasoline-driven automobile, the Benz Patent-Motorwagen.

Cleaned my 1953 beach florin and found something ‘F’ishy, also looks like it is a rare large denticle variety, for whatever that means value wise.
