Metal Detecting finds from yesterday.

Wednesday 16 July 2014.
 Three pre-decimal pennies, a pre-decimal ship half penny, £2.67 in spends, military button, two pistol balls, two buttons, a Union Jack badge, and a prefect badge.

Having not been out for a few days metal detecting I managed to get a few hours in yesterday on a local pasture site to keep my hand in. It wasn't a great day find wise but I did dig a nice military button in good condition.
Also managed £2.67 in spends, so that will go into my challenge fund.

I've managed to pick myself up a large 18" flower pot. I'm going to fill it with good bought in soil and make a test bed to try and 'tweak' a bit more depth with my XP Deus. I'm feeling I'm at the stage now where I'm feeling more confident in understanding the Deus and its time to see what this machine can do in test situations. Will let you know how I get on.


  1. And what is the "challenge fund"?

  2. I've set a target of £400.00. So all the decimal coins I find metal detecting goes into a pot and hopefully by the time the year is up I will have enough for that new machine and scoop I have my eye on.

  3. Ah, okay. Understand. I used to take my clad or common coins and buy a collectible, key or semi-key coin. Was a wise move. They have increased in value over the years.

  4. That's a great idea Dick. Since I've been metal detecting I've always fancied making a British coin collection. All this clad we find is a good way to fund it. I think you have given me an idea for a new hobby.

  5. I used to have one of those school badges, I cant believe they have spelt "perfect" wrong....not much education going on there I fear! :P


  6. Just sent you a pm on MDF as well matey :)


  7. Welcome back from your holidays Jordan and hope you had a good time.
    I dipped out on one of those badges, couldn't have been much education going on at my skool either as they spelt it the same.
    Tempted to fix the pin mind and wear it around the house :).
