My white whale atm is any English silver larger than a shilling, any florin, half crown or crown or gothic will do.

Not asking much!!!

For me it would be locking on to this forum and find it have gone back to what made it a great forum of choice, where ALL follow the rules and respect one another including intellectual property.

As for specific metal detecting finds it's still a game of luck, but there are a number of ways which will increase one's "luck".

One of those ways is to be a participating member of a great forum and perhaps get some tips of those so called old timers that have a lifetime of experience and memories ..... not found instantly by Google.

Anyhow there is a few items on my "to find" wishlist that I hope will stay on that list, cause if found there is nothing much else exciting to look forward to.

A gold sovereign or half sovereign,  plus 10 gram nugget.  Actually to be able to get down to the goldfields this year, will be o/s for nearly a quarter of it.
