Here’s the cleanup from today’s hunt with Erickd. We were going to try a couple of new locations but it didn’t work out, so back to an old reliable spot.
Ended up with 15 silvers, a couple of old badges, a Returned Soldiers badge (not Returned Services)…bit different from my others!
Also, the usual pennies and other bits.
Another hunt from earlier in the week. Some cool medalette type coins and a neat old Victorian breath mint cannister top. I have “negative imaged” the medalettes to try and see them a little more clearly. The shield one is a gaming token based on a guinea, not sure what the Victoria head one is. The possible “time check” one is interesting…number 75 but can’t make out the wording around the top…another mystery to solve…get in the queue…lol
Finds from last night’s hunt with Erickd. Managed 8 silvers including a very worn 1873 Brit shilling, an old school badge, a crown badge, a poor old lead soldier missing his head and feet, a lead projectile an the usual scrap and spendies.
Last night’s hunt with Erickd scored me some real cool stuff. Five silvers including a nice 1878 Vicky shilling, an H.J.Hall trade token, a neat little .925 Unicorn charm, an 1889 penny in great nic and a “Tasmania” badge…but coolest of all, and my favourite find of the night, the head of a very old (possibly Victorian, probably Edwardian) toothbrush!..how cool is that!?! Hard to tell what material it’s made from but definitely a silvered alloy of some kind.
Awesome fun hunt.
