Might be worth checking your household contents policy too, they sometimes cover items from vehicles etc.

Damn that really sucks Dan... The two girls I detected with, Sam and Jess had their 3 detectors stolen from their car as well... At pro, xterra 705 and Excalibur... Cops had no luck finding them or the culprits.

Finally out and about after a bit of turmoil .

Anyways had a couple of hunts and picked up some nice finds .

A couple of silver chains were highlights , with some intetesting tokens to local attractions . What I thought was a silver spoon in a trashy area turned out to be a junkie utensil , you can see the heat marks from the flame under it.

The rings are just costume - however there is a nice mimco amongst them . The second larger chain i acid tested , for a positive result , then I realised I had tested it right on the hallmark - I could still make out the 2 and 5 - murphy’s law hey smile

Anyways here are the pics

There’s a nice watch somewhere there .

Happy hunting

On the hustings , had several hunts over the last coupla weeks . Some coinage around and silver , but the gold has been elusive . Detectors used Knox , CTX Excalibur 2 . Here are the pics . 1576158583_7c9655ce-5391-4c86-9da0-5195275dc13f.jpeg

The chain I thought might of been rhodium plated stainless steel , but it tested positive for silver with a 68% nitric acid solution. Tiffany earring was a bonus .

The rings and earrings on the right in the bottom picture are sterling , should be a thrippy there somewhere also.

First pick was a seperate hunt with the 2 rings on the left being silver.

Second picture the chain is rhodium plated stainless steel.

Happy hunting

Out and about for 2020 , been on a couple of hunts , ran into a few of the members from PA on holiday and showed them a few places to have a detect and a drink smile . Anyways here are a few picks.
The silver chain theme continued into 2020. With the the chain pendant being picked up on a second pass. Interesting Santiago Zoo entry/ commemorative coin/token was found amongst some petrol money .

Chain was a heart stopper , unfortunately it was an imitation . Decided to detect with the Excalibur in about nine feet of surf . Calm day and no northern sweep so conditions were good for a snorkel.

This hunt the detector used was the CTX . Main focus was the run out tide and zigzagged in the swash to about 2 feet of water . Went head over a few times after getting my legs tangled up with the detector and sand scoop . Watch was a nice pick up and was still keeping time when found .
