Working my way around the coast on the big tides, the AT Pro seemed a lot more stable in the next bay which probably accounts for more hits.
In the immortal words of Lance in "The Detectorists" We're always searching for gold, we don't say it, but we are"
No Gold today, but lifted another silver ring. Shown against the one I pulled yesterday (which was a 925 and Lapis stone)
And a car remote, can only imagine the angst when they got back to the car only to find (the man
) had lost the 'key'
Couple of older items too (which are more valuable than Gold in my eyes).
A piece of wood with brass plate off a boat (wrecked?)
Miller Bros. Lyttleton Dates to 1915-1922 at which point one of the apprentices became a partner and the name changed to Miller & Tunnage. Based on Mudwiggles posts, I have this soaking in a dilute PVA glue solution to preserve the wood.
And a fork, Cooper Bros. The "Don Plate" works was using this stamp 1872-1885. Some nice age with these bits, even though the Whangarei coast has been severely hammered over the years.
Hubby has his "favourite spoon" that I pulled from Uretiti Beach a few years ago - This in now my 'Favourite fork" for meals
Can anyone ID the crucifix thing?
