Yours is a lot nicer than the one on that link page Dave! Maybe you should send them a copy of the pic to show them what it really looks like - and say where it was found!

Cheers,

Found my second Chinese coin last weekend, this one is about the size of a florin but about half ss thick. Was looking for an old water race in a tin mining area but massive washouts on the track turned me back.1569932142_rps20191001_220320.jpg1569932155_rps20191001_220427.jpg

Looks like that one was pretty old when it was bought to Australia. Pretty amazing workmanship for something made over 300 years ago.

Had a couple of nice days out in the bush before winter returned with a vengeance! Think that's a sovereign holder...... unfortunately empty, a rubber stamp handle and a couple of interesting buckles including my first cricket one. Also pretty happy with my first intact ink bottle smile

Drove a fair way for one button and a dozen tiny bits of gold in the pan but is a nice spot for a drive anyway. big_smile

Dropped a couple in lemon juice for an hour and gave them a scrub with a brass wire brush.... after I checked the dates! So close but no winners.

I was having a pretty good day in the bush. Couple of nice bits of jewellery and relics,

An Edward VII coronation medal,
1575234564_rps20191202_080006.jpg
A nice little locally made pocket watch fob......
then I heard some hooting and hollering from the scrub where a mate was detecting.....
He pulls out a handful of Victorian and Chinese coins then says look in the hole.....

Am liking that coronation medal. I wonder whether the Chinese prospector buried the sovereign with his coins for safe keeping, a very lucky man with that find! thumbsup

On closer inspection it's actually a diamond jubilee medallion, Queen Victoria, 1837-1897.
