    I finally bought a metal detector and went out into the woods behind my house. Looks like a lot of exploded ordinance and perhaps an old buckle?

    The broken ring with the numbers is part of an artillery fuze timer, it looks like a British.

    I'm with shadowwolf on that; looks like some bits of the detonator of a British shell. Buckle is a bit earilier; I would say a 18th or 19th century shoe buckle.
    Keep the finds coming! You live in a good part of Europe for detecting! (not very far from me by the way)

    Thanks guys! I will research that timer a little more now. As for the buckle it would make sense to be that old. It was buried about 8 inches under the ground where as the other finds were maybe 2.

    Thanks for the tips Steve. My friends have been doing this for almost three years but I couldnt hold out any longer. I enjoyed detecting with them but I would see what they'd find and be jealous. Figured it was time for me to get my own.

    I see that it says you live in Sefferweich. I also live there and am looking for someone to join me out detecting. The woods behind my house are also promising. Found a unmarked grave stone and some old ruins with a German 88 next to it sitting on the surface.

    first outing.........!
