Detecting

Post  Jonathan on Mon May 09, 2011 10:27 am

They've finnaly took out the spuds in one of the fields, haven't found anything in that particular field probably because i was rushing as i have been detecting when ever i can. Im hoping to go back in that field and see what goodies turn up for me.

On saturday i went around the corner of my lucky field where they haven't planted any of the spuds and a 1945 George VI penny popped up, it was in great nick, and also i found a 1937 shell casing which was badly mangled up by the plough.

Has anyone found any finds at all this year? Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Found a few decent finds before the spuds went in, a small cannon ball, a belt hanger and the usual french coins and 2 kilos of scrap Laughing

I found another ramrod end monday the same as the previous two, also a small weight and poss half of a case for pan weights, had a few liards and a nice 4 doubles 1830 also a 2 doubles 1830 as well and a bronze finger ring, mens size not bad for a bank holiday, Very Happy will bring them along to the next meeting, sorry but missed the last due to work Embarassed

yes, i hope to find a coin or two when they've picked all the spugs out of the field. My normal field never seems to dissapoint. I've had nothing but good finds from that field. Very Happy

I am using my explorer 11 and ocasionally the explorer SE or goldmax power, but I find the ex 11 is easier to work with Very Happy the signals are clearer without too much fuss, but I admit nothing much is found below 9" DEPTH UNLESS ITS A COKE CAN. Embarassed

I found a good george 3rd silver shilling last night along with a victorian silver threepence, the Explorer SE is still working well, even though the ground is as dry as a bone. Very Happy

Good find Ken

Nice finds Ken glad your still out there searching,
iv'e havent been out for a while as seem to have a few health probs
with my feet, had to cut my wellies off last time as they swelled up affraid
you need a pickaxe to get into the ground its like concrete
bent my fork trying to get our spuds out of allotment in St Lawrence Sad
cos I was jumping on it to get under them with all my weight.

I was'nt at the meet but did hear about Ians wondeful 2x Gold Sov's he found
somewhere on a beach 2" in mud! scratch
some people have all the luck! they are worth a lot of dosh by the dates
maybe as much as 900 quid each.
Cheers Rob.

Great finds Ken, I didn't make it to the meeting either-work, Allotment and being a taxi to the kid and missus just wears me out too much these days Sad
