More Old gold with Silver n Lead
Today the club had an outing to a mudflat area that looked promising. There were many targets to dig although for me they were mostly copper and brass scrap except for a couple of coins and 675g of lead sinkers. After about an hour, two of us moved sites to a nearby beach hoping for better luck. This turned out to be a good move for me as I found a 9ct ring, a Sterling Silver ring and a silver bow brooch along with an Aussie $2. The gold ring is hallmarked by the Chester assay office and I believe the date mark is 1898. Maker W. H. Tandy and Sons 1896 - 1957.
The lead sinkers were huge.
The day turned out pretty good with plenty to dig and some reward for it too.
Thanks for looking.
