Metal detecting finds - relics

The rain was getting heavier but I’d only been detecting for an hour. Looking at the puzzling bronze bits in my finds pouch again I wondered if I should take some photos with my phone, upload them to our Club Forum and hopefully get an I.D. before I called it a day. Now it’s not easy operating a 'touchscreen smart phone' in the rain. Predictive txt has nothing on this!

Silver was jumping out of the ground

Metal detecting finds - coins and relics

Recently I was given the heads up from the parks department, about a sports field which was to be renovated. I invited 4 other detectorists to come and enjoy the party. The city had removed 3" of sod and soil prior to tilling sand into it to improve drainage. As a group we recovered 102 pieces of silver while the site was open to us. My take from the field with the CTX 3030 was 50 pieces. Thanks Minelab for making a superior machine. I am having a blast.

So my day began with selling popcorn at the local post office with my son for Cub Scouts. While there his mentor in school came by. A sweet older woman whom my son loves. I asked her where she lived and she told me the home right down the street. I told her my hobby and before I could even ask, she said come down anytime I like. So later that day I went.

Iron Age / Roman Strap fitting

Metal detecting finds - relic (back)

I am a member of Ambers Digs, a group of detectorists that venture out most Sundays in the North East of England. Recently the group had its annual rally which consisted of a weekend camp on farm land with a large area of arable land on which to detect. Unfortunately due to work commitments I was unable to attend the rally for the full weekend but managed to make it for the final day.

Lovely condition Henry 6th Half Groat

Metal detecting finds - groat

Picked this lovely condition hammered half groat from a very iron contaminated site, which has been blitzed by every conceivable top end machine on the market today. Utilizing Gordin Heritage's Tadpole 2 program and using the standard stock coil the target trace told me iron was present but also a non ferrous conductor. CTX 3030 is hard to beat!

Old WW1 Button

Metal detecting finds - button

After a morning out unsuccessful detecting with a friend, we parted ways and I went out alone. One place I thought I would try was a site of an old Lutheran Church which had been demolished and there was nothing left on the site, except a cemetery.

I arrived and grabbed my X-TERRA 305 and started to search. Only after a few minutes the detector went off. I got down on my knees and started digging, luckily the soil was quite sandy so it was pretty easy going. I only dug approx 15-20cm down and I pulled up this little button. The inscription on the button is "OUR OWN MAKE".

Cool Token

Metal detecting finds - token (back)

Went to a 1902 house for some detecting and on my 2nd visit I found a token. At first I thought it was a cool old token but today (Sept. 23 2013) I found out it is rare also. I have been spending a bunch of time trying to research this token for the last few days since I found it to no avail.

Metal detecting finds - relics

My E-TRAC never ever ceases to amaze me. Went out to spend the day on fields the we have detected for a number of years with a colleague. We did not expected to find much given the number of times we have searched these fields. Just another day on the cliff tops around Saltburn by the Sea.

Metal detecting finds - relics

Got out tonight. So passing in town and I noticed the pond in town was very low due to the drought. So the park I super busy. I asked the town guy who cleans the park and he gave me a trash bag and said get as much trash out and knock your socks off. I cleaned up about 20 cans and tons of bee caps but I had a stellar day.
