Twenty five silvers is impressive. Yes I think one of you (Erickd, N8) should be the proud owner of a 'complete' badge.

Another weekend adventure with No8wire to a new spot, new spot didn't give much other than a 1958 shilling, $2 and a 1cent coin so moved on to the silver mine.
10 silvers including a Nz half crown.

Sunday Hunt with No8wire to a couple of new areas, was hard going but the 1st place is definitely worth another go over.
5 silvers including a 1879 Shilling, also found 2 non silver half crowns and florin, and the usual pile of pennies.

Sunday hunt with No8wire at a new permission, like no8 said in his post , it must have been detected to death in the past, probably on the 80s and 90s
did manage 6 silvers though and a 1945 island of Jersey Liberation coin. I did find a couple of 1870s penny's and nz penny's and gave them to the owner to keep.

$18 in spendies to pay back the work snack box. 2 silver rings, a bunch of pennies and a Polish 2 Zlote coin from 1994.

You did really well to get five silvers from that general area....and two silver rings!
Really enjoyed the day including the extreme mountain goating.... which seems to be becoming more and more a part of our hunting pattern!

Beautiful token.
Nice signet.
The lock is very cool, would love to see it modeled once you've given her a bath.
Not sure what the souvenir pendant thing says, can you give more detail?
To the right of the bangle, is that a foreign coin?
