Pretty new to all this but really enjoying the fun of not knowing whats going bing bing bing and then finding out.
I have amased a mountain of tear tabs, bottle tops ,lead sinkers and lead nails.if you need a supply of tent pegs im your man.couple of junk rings .keys .and a few coins and weird stuff…
So what do you do with your finds.???
Current coins are easy.might be able to get a beer at the local.
But old silvers.or rings??
Be interested to know your thoughts on what to do with all that metal we dig.
Myself… Keep most of lead/copper brass in buckets then sell it to the scapies as for gold an silver all goes in a very small cup🤣
Just call me Uncle Scrooge! Well not quite that bad - when silver went up 20 times face value of the coins I sold a large preserving jar full and used to give the coppers to kids. I dont go out after coins much but when I do I hoard them but have not got much.
I keep my finds and only sell them if I need an upgrade and spendies won’t cover it.
It’s an extra to throw it in a bag or a bucket, that’s two years worth from the beach, it contained everything the Cook Strait (the real one not me) threw up from the harbour, not exactly a money spinner but why would I decline it?
