Did a lot of walking

Did a lot of walking at the beach last Monday where there were few targets despite considerable sand movement. The reward was this 750 circle with unknown stone.

Detecting is a great way to get some exercise regardless of the finds.

Baby brooch

Despite lots of sand movement at the beach today targets were scarce and you can see I found little. However the Baby brooch is Silver with the date mark for 1907 - 1908 so happy with that. Not sure why a baby needs to be labelled.

Recent fun on the sand

Hi Everyone,

Here is a pic of some success I have had in a few hunts in the last week.
The small Pandora ring and the bracelet chain with the heart padlock are both 925 with the rest being just bling but still nice finds I guess.

Best hunt for a while.

Three hour beach hunt today. Best result for a while. There had been good sand movement which is always exciting.
18ct gold ring + 925 silver ring with sparkles + old style junk pendant and $5.

Here are the two rings after some TLC.

and all the other finds including some decent lead scrap.

Thanks for looking.

Recent Gold

Have not been hunting as often this year so good finds have been a bit scarce but these two turned up on two recent beach hunts.

18k charm with stone and a 9k Cross.

They are both small but I'll take them.

A bit patchy

Not a lot found since my last post. Been hitting the beaches but very few targets recovered as I seem to have been following other keen hunters on a few occasions. However they are not getting everything and (tee hee ) there is something about finding a nice target you know they have missed.

10k ring

925 ring

Stainless ring and Canister pendant 

Cleaned up quite well.

Thanks for looking.
I am on Facebook too

10k today

A 2 hour beach hunt today produced this nice 10k gold ring and a few coins. As my last hunt was 27 days ago it sure felt good to find gold the first day back.

Hoping the ear ring is silver and not just plated. 

Good luck everyone.

Bogus 925

Enjoyed a couple of hours detecting at a beach this afternoon. Managed to get $2.90 plus two rings from this well hunted city beach. One ring is stainless and the other bronze and stamped 925 so I guess it was once silver plated. Someone got swindled with the 925 mark no doubt.

Happy hunting to all.

2 is better than 1

This Friday afternoons adventure gave up two 925 silver rings and a few coins. Good finds have been scarce on the beaches this year so I was quite pleased to get them.

And from last Friday $13.00 and a junk ring.

Good luck with your finds.

Silversmith T.M

It has been a while since I have posted here as although I have been hunting regularly my finds have not been noteworthy. However today I visited a beach where I had been told a lot of sand had moved and it sure had. I hunted for about 3 hours and found several bits and bobs among the many targets.

The better finds were a small 9ct Gold signet ring and a Sliver Fruit knife which according to the hallmarks on the blade was made by an English Silversmith, Thomas Marples of Sheffield in 1910.
