Total finds for Saturday.
Saturday 24th January: Port Eliot Estate Rally in Cornwall.An excellent organized rally on a perfectly crisp sunny day. This was my second rally at this location and did far better find wise the first time which included a couple of silver hammered coins and a medieval thimble. But this time around although with no quality finds I did have plenty to make the day interesting and fun.
Watch Winder & Royal Marines Button.
Ornate Lead Piece & Thimble.
Though I tried to keep away from the areas I did last time the decimal coins were still in abundance around the areas people camped etc, along with the pull tabs and bottle tops mind. So if you enjoy coin shooting its ideal, but as I said this time I tried to keep away and concentrated on the wooded and out the way areas. I still managed to find a few decimal coins, 28 in total with a value of around £8. The rest of my finds were just run of the mill really but as long as I'm finding something then I'm happy.
Possible Lead Weight & Large Lead Tack.
Total finds for Sunday.
Sunday 25th January: Club Dig.Sunday we headed for a farm on the edge of Dartmoor where we have never detected as a club before, So noone really knew what would come up. Though plenty of history for the area it turned out a quiet day for quality finds for me. Using my Deus I did manage 17 decimal coins and 6 older grot coins, the best find for me was the silver heart shaped pendant. Also found an interesting looking old padlock and a few other bits. Not a quality day findwise, but as always its nice to find something and I enjoyed the day.
