Yep, I got rid of my bungy cord, and replaced it with a straight cord, there are even shorter cords if that suits.

That is a very fancy ring.


Night hunt with no8wire ransacking a city park, 8 silvers and other relic bits and the usual heap of pennies, quite a few oldies in the 1860s.


Oh to find a lead soldier - wicked.



Oh you bad boys! :sunglasses:

I wonder if those children were ever sucking on those lead toys :frowning:


Some nice stuff there Erickd. Man lead toys are super cool! A few nice 1800’s coins too.:+1:


Here’s the round up of tonight’s hunt with Kevin Pitt, 3 silvers and yes gonna count the chopped 1943 half crown as one…a vintage Felix the cat brooch, found one before and it’s the rare variety according to Google but can’t seem to find the page now.
U2 badge, a NSW ametuer swimming association badge, $10 lunch money and the stack of penny’s


Shame about the half crown, it would take a bit of munching through one of those.
Felix is cool, I’ve got a single only.
Nice hunting


Everybody loves a silver chop up. Mean as.




That Felix the Cat badge is a real prize there.
