Infinity 925

Had a pleasant evening hunt on a city beach last night. Heaps of bottle tops to deal with but still managed $11.20 and a small 925 ring to feed the habit.

Evening beach hunt

Had an evening beach hunt with my son on Waitangi day. The first hunt in the dark for some time and I had forgotten how enjoyable it can be. Despite the beach being very crowded earlier in the day the really good finds did not appear however We did have some success and here are my finds.


The elephant head pendant is silver as is the 1936 NZ threepence.

Family beach hunt


Got a text from my son on Wednesday.
"Do you wanna go detecting after work" 
Reply "Yep" 
So we were on the sand at Mission Bay at 6.45. People everywhere. Fraser using my old E Trac and me with the 3030. Tide incoming. We did ok. Fraser won the cash count with $10.00 + some junk jewelry. I only managed a measly $5.00.  :-) Here are my finds for the evening. The chain is silver. The ring is junk. 


Good times.

First 2017 hunt

New years day hunt on the beach at 7am where I found 5 other hunters already swinging earnestly. Not to be deterred by this I set about  searching 5 - 10m each side of the high tide line and this is what I found.


Unfortunately all that glitters is not gold. Here is the rest including $13.20 and a silver chain n pendant. 


Thanks for looking.
Happy New Year to all.

2 nice finds

Had a 3 hour hunt over 2 beaches today. First hit on the first beach was the 14k Gold pendant and the 925 chain was the first hit on the second. Not complaining. Also $5 cash and some junk jewelry.

Sterling and cash

I have not had a lot to report lately as although I have been on hunts the results have been poor. However I had a more interesting beach hunt today as the pic shows. The two sunnies are past it but I did dig $7 plus and a sterling silver ring, Also saw a very nice black bikini, a young guy practicing his ballet jumps and a camera crew doing an interview all on the sand so there were no dull moments. I think the silver ring will clean up well.



Thanks for looking.

Friday Fun

Enjoyed a couple of hours hunting land n sand today. $14 spendable's and a ring that looks like gold but I suspect is not as there are no marks.  Nevertheless it is still quite a good looking ring and it fits so quite happy with that.

Just a Toe ring.

A couple of hours at the bay of the Mission this afternoon. Due to detector traffic I never expect anything at this beach but managed a few bits. $6.30 and a Silver Toe ring. A nice way to spend a Friday afternoon in the sun.
