Gav's Metal Detecting Finds

Got out for a very brief wave of the wand last night…

found the sixpence in the immediate patch of the other two old coins from Gav's Metal Detecting Finds


good on yer gavin keep swinging.

Invited out for a swing by @dredgenz and @PablosGold today - cheers guys :slight_smile: My highlight was a well worn silver 1887 three pence.

Usually more into the gold myself but might have to get out for a few more winter plays now.


Nice one Gavin, was a great day for it!

1887 - Nice.

– It’s a pleasant way to while away the non-golden hours… :wink:

You should have stayed a bit longer, we had a great time after you left.

Dragged out again by @PablosGold . Highlight was a 1934 sixpence for me. Pretty corrosive ground for coins apparently…


Hope you have a chance to dust of the detector and enter the competition.
Don’t let the South Island down mate.

Oooo, forgot about that!! Pity most of mine were corroded so only a few dates were visible. Will try and take another photo with dates in shot :slight_smile:

Dates may not be essential.
