Wasn't out much this month as I started a new job. Found a really nice silver shilling which I am really happy with smile

Cattle tag and a bag seal



1987 pigeon ring



Was told this is a ball pommel from the handle of a dagger 1670-1720



Some old coinage



1917 silver three pence



And my favourite.... 1891 jubilee head silver shilling





Thanks for looking smile

Pity your grandson wasnt a bit older you could have taken him with you to metal detect i bet he would enjoy it.
You still got plenty time to get out and find some goodies,
Hope your mum gets better soon xx

Thanks Snowy it's his mummy who is laid up, he's only 14 months old so yeah taking him not good idea. Yeah as you say plenty of other times to come, just went down the old shore because weather is so nice and had a quick go .Nought!! As usual. I think these you tube videos lie Xplore, I watch them and they hear signal ,one spadeful and there's the coin or ring lying there for all to see, come home with pocketfuls of coins. I hea signal dig like I,m going to come up in Australia and still Nought!! Still not going to let it stop me!

Thanks everyone smile

Cools, you need to get yourself on some good land. I've been on digs where I have had lots of coins off 1 field, other times I've been out hours and found nothing. Keep at it, you will find a "hot spot" soon full of old stuff smile

I am getting better at hitting the targets Xplore, been out a few times and found lots of old cans and twisted metal and even an old 10p. Made up when I find something even if it is rubbish means I'm not digging in wrong place. Yeah I do think I need to find some good spots. Went to West Kirby didn't find anything but enjoyed it. Someone told me it's illegal to metal detect on beachs ,nicely tho told me I should go th Dove Point , Viking stuff found there.
