English Sixpence day

Only found one English sixpence prior to today. Today I got 3, 1899, 1906.1912 :)
Also my second half crown! Which amazed the kids following me then they wouldn't leave.... so I did.
Oh well will be back there tomorrow morning when they wont be there.

Does anyone know what these are? I have found two others the same, seem to be lead? And have letters in them I can't make sense of.

Lake Hunt

Had my 1st go at detecting in the water, Going to need to get a sand scoop on a pole, was getting the kind GF to dig with a hand scoop, was fun though.
Few finds, some where from the beach part
Many many many bottle caps and pull tabs here....still no gold.... where is it hiding

Only issue I had with the AT pro is that when I went to collapse the shaft later to fit it in the boot you could not move it, sand had got into the shaft and seized it up, Had to spend a bit of time at home to get it free, put a little grease on the shaft, dunno if that will help, might just make the sand stick to it more....

Very worn Queen Vics

Still haven't been able to do much hunting,, still recovering from Thursday lol.
Very happy to see some silver in a couple of the holes! These two were very close, probably the same pocket spill, Sixpence is very worn, one side is flat.


Less time hunting today

Still a bit sore from yesterday.
Got a bit in though.

Couple of random things, I think that button is a NZ armed forces one, And I cant make out what the ship pendant thing says, Any non destructive ideas to clean it?

Hello AT Pro!

 It arrived! Assembled while at work, headed out for a 45min hunt and 1st dug signal was a $1 coin!
Very happy with the Pro mode audio, dug more coins than items of rubbish in that short hunt.
Noticed the machine is unaffected by electrical fields from power cables etc which the F2 simply could not operate anywhere near. Still got a lot of learning to do! What a lot of interesting noises to learn
