Well had a very early start on our hunt ~ well the earliest yet for us ~ I was up at 06.00 ~ car packed and a quick breakfast and off ~
Ed and I decided we would do the old favourite site as it never fails to give us some thing ~ but little did we know that today was going to be cracker ~
Once we made camp, ~ the progress was a little slow! Heaps of trash and iron ~ But I soon picked up a Penny King George VI 1944. Then an Officer's pip a 1928 three pence! Meanwhile Ed was on a run with buttons including AMF.
10.30 We broke for a cuppa and then headed off to the other side of the site ~ No Snakes !
Ed headed off and followed about 10 minutes later ~ He was already digging up coins when I arrived ~ He had set his CTX to eliminate iron ~
Good me as the first thing I hit turned out to be ~ a MAGAZINE for an OWEN GUN~ Woo Hoo ~ pity sad but certainly worth a go at restoring or even cleaning up ~
Ed kept turning up the coins ~ I then found seven AMF buttons in one spot ~ Seems some bloke had dumped his coat and bolted ~
I found a mystery item again ~
But a great outing for the first day of recovery ~
The magazine is soaking in rust remover ~
Cleaned up the coins ~ Superb ~ not so the 1944 penny though ~
