September 4

Got out for a hunt with Steve again, we dug for a mammoth 6 hours and the reseilts were quite pleasing. We both managed a decent amount of coins, Steve recovered 23 and i recovered 64, a new personel record. The better 2 were a 1936 silver sixpence and a 1943 silver shilling, both were in appaling condition when dug but after running electrolysis they cleaned up nicely.
We also dug 2 foreign coins each, Steve got a 1983 Hong Kong 10 cents and a chinese coins, and I got a 1983 English pound and a 1983 Vanuatu 20 vatu.
We finished the day with a feed of chicken and chips, well deserved reward!

27-28 August

Got out 2 days in a row, tired as now because of it. Managed 5 pennies in the 2 days which was really good although none of the dates were ones I hadnt found before, i did however find a 1985 1c, now I have dug complete sets of both the 1c and the 2c, so i dont have to be so picky about working out what dates they all are! Got enough video captured to make a video which should be out in acouple of days.
