Friday at the beach

Friday afternoon at the beach. $0.90 , more old earrings an a couple of rings. One sterling silver and the other a toe ring that acid tests 10ct although it has no marks. Think i will say it's Gold until I can prove otherwise.

First Gold 2018

Last Friday was a great day as I got my first gold for 2018 from one of my regularly visited beaches. The sand had been stripped quite a bit and the coins coming up were pretty crusty so the possibility of gold was good. When this plain gold band popped up early in the hunt it sure kicked in the motivator and so I ended up gridding a massive area but alas just the one. Next time maybe.


The other ring was a kids junker and the small bottle popped up when I dug a 20c.

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.
