Go Up Go Down

After missing out going to the beach on sunday and going to a dig instead where i did not find anything of worth, i went to Brighton beach today at 5.30am , the tide was in and i was most searching the tops for the recent losses.
It took a while to find anything at first but then i had the copper ring which i thought was gold in the bright sunlight, and that i started finding the coins in a steady stream but quite slowly.
When the tide went out i searched the low water line and found the silver ring, i found the pin between the tide marks.
In the end i had ?20.22p , two 10 Euro cent coins and another foreign coin.

I found these at the dig on sunday , a Bovril token and a George 111 shilling 1821

Nice haul! I think that the one you called a pin is actually an earring from the 1920s or 1930s.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

The copper ring is beautiful and seems old as well

Well Rich The GT is a great machine and its one of the best if not the best? But you have to get it cookin just right
But your machines have the edge i think but the hard work is done by the man holding the thing, tell him to sit this one out
and watch
