Some half pennies from 1900's



Edward VII silver six pence and George V silver three pence





Irish 1d coin and a George V east African 10 cents





A Belgium 2 cents from 1800's



Few more coins





Heres a couple of tokens



This is the other side of the token on the right

My daughter found this little leather purse with 3 old pennies in



A nice, shot, 2 ring bullet



And my first bit of gold!





Thanks for looking smile

I was over the moon cools, I love all this sort of stuff. Hope I do find a nice hoard one day haha.

The writing says "live mutual we receive and give in absence for each other" and on the back the name "Greg Cratty" is inscribed. Would love to know exactly what it is

Wonder who Greg Cratty was? There's a story there somewhere... nice to see the threepenny bits in particular, I was very fond of those. Nice chunky little things.

The one I use is a Garrett Ace 250, a highly rated beginners machine, it costs about 180 new, could be abit cheaper now, and cheaper again second hand.

There is also the Teknetic's eurotek which are also highly rated, You can get those for around 140 brand new, or the eurotek pro for around 170-180, only difference being a pin point option on the detector.

But it does depend on what your budget is, and weather you will be detecting on land or beach, as those two detectors are not made for wet sand, although fine on dry sand. If you had a bit more you could also upgrade coils on them, which would give you more depth and ground coverage. If you go on youtube and type in those metal detectors, there are alot of reviews and videos showing them in action. I would have a look on there, plus read up online before you buy.

Hope that helps smile

Thanks, just been looking at them on e-bay etc. I see they vary in price from very cheap to very expensive. I guess the cheap ones are not worth buying, you get what you pay for springs to mind.You have really got me into this now I will read more about it. How I would love to handle something that has been buried for such a long time like these treasures that have been found,what a feeling that would be.

Alot of them will vary according to the coil size you get with them aswel. When you have got the money give me an email and i will help you find a good deal on one.

Its such a great buzz when you pull up something old, wondering how it was lost, whose it was ect... i dont know if you saw a thread on here a while back, i found a silver medal, and the people on here managed to track it down to whose it was and gave me info on him, heres a link to it...
