Greetings from rAdelaide!
« on: February 25, 2018, 18:23 »
40something crazy cat lady who loves to swing.  A coil that is.  

Been swinging since Christmas 2013 when I was given an Ace 250 for Christmas.  Spent a couple of summers scouring the beaches like every man and his dog, then I saw someone I followed on Instagram for his wood turning posts started posting all these predecimal coins found metal detecting.  When he told me he found them in parks I stopped with the beaches, upgraded to an AT Pro and went on my merry way. More recently (2017) I went wireless and bought an XP Deus. 

Favourite finds include (in no particular order) 1886 gold sovereign, cricket belt buckle and a coin spill that had more than 200 (decimal) coins in it.

In case you were wondering, xlii is Roman numerals for 42 and has been my name for over 20 years.
