What's your favourite find this year?
« on: December 24, 2017, 08:15 »
This year has been a great year detecting for me. A whole bunch of firsts. My favourite find this year is the 1814 Nova Scotia Half penny token I found. This one took a while to identify. It's not in great condition, but 150 ish years in the ground will do that to anyone!

I'd been keen to see others favourite finds for the year. As with mine, it doesn't need to be the most valuable.

Merry Christmas to you all. GLHH!

The first thing that comes to mind is the sovereign holder found in a local park.  But, finding a 1470’s Spanish blanco in highly mineralised ground, using my ‘Terra 705, is top of my list.

Best Finds:
1470’s Spanish coin.
Gold plated sovereign holder.

Bucket list:
Sovereign - half or full
Rising sun badge
1938 Crown
Wheat threepence

Just DON'T put it on a holden, PLEASE!
My favorite find would be the spectacles I found in a military camp, it doesn't get much more personal than that.
