Storm. What storm.

Could not resist the hunting urge yesterday so I visited two beaches in the rain  Lots of sand moved by the storm as hoped for and expected. $25.20 in cash + 1934 Silver NZ Florin + 1909 English Silver 3p. Also two lead toys and a stainless ring. Lots of fun..




Looking for the next storm now. :-)

Grilled two bits.

Forgot to post this from a recent hunt.

Today was a hunt of mainly small stuff of little value until the 18ct grill popped up. My first grill and as leaving the beach a radio was playing "All I want for Christmas is my 2 front teeth".  Had to grin a bit. :-)

Sunset beach hunt

Got to a city beach at 6.30 pm tonight just as the crowds started to leave.
Gridded the apron and then the dry sand over the large most popular section
hoping for a ring. Got my wish with a 18k white gold band, a 925 Bow ring and
a 925 Bird charm plus $15.50 cash.


Thanks for looking.

Beach 10k

Did a lot of walking at the beach yesterday but got rewarded eventually with a large 10k white gold wedder, a few dollars and a junk stone brooch. Happy days.


Roll on Summer detecting.

Silver recycled

Another 2 hour beach hunt this morning. Tough going with few targets unless you count bottle caps. :-) $3.20 in cash and a 925 ear ring which should clean up well and become a pendant when I add a chain.
Should look treemendous. :-)

Silver revived

Had another go at reviving some of the Silver rings I have found recently. My technique is not perfect yet but thankfully getting better.


Here is the "before" on the larger ring.


All good fun.

Welcome trough

Had not been out for a hunt for 15 days so I was quite keen to get to the beach yesterday and very pleased to see a long trough cut in the sand when I arrived. Over the next 3 hours I concentrated on the trough and found two 925 rings and two silver NZ threepence's dated 1934 and 1943 plus $6.60 in cash so I was quite happy with that result. Roll on Summer.

Welcome Plat.

Finds from a recent beach hunt.
I think my first Pt900 plus 18ct Gold, a tiny .925 ring top and a large silver ring.
All round a great hunt with my CTX.


HH to all.

New beach rewards.

This week I have twice hunted a beach on the North Shore that I have not visited before. It would seem that not many others have either as the targets were quite plentiful.  The first visit gave up a nice little 925 ring with teardrop stone and the second visit a 9ct wedding ring. So with the jewelry, the scrap Lead and about $10 cash it was a great result.





Thanks for looking.
