Went with Steve to a sandy beach further south, was hoping to find plenty but ebeded up with bugger all, so we moved to the next beach up, again didnt find too much. Just about enough to cover the gas it took to get there so atleast we broke even. Managed 18 coins so that has brought my total count to 922 so my ultimate goal of 1,000 coins is getting closer. Hopefully next weekend will be better!

Saturday 17 July

Got out for a hunt on Saturday aftyernoon, the weather lookied ominous but we persevered and headed to a site that had produced the week before. The day was slow to start with, just 2 5c coins. Nothing worth bragging about, then a decent find, a New Zealand penny though heavily corroded.
We kept at it and slowly the finds started to come in, the first great find was a 1945 silver sixpence.
Over the course of the next few hours I managed 34 coins, a new personal best, the odd find was a sheriffs badge, in metal with makers details on the back, probably a 1950s-1960s piece. A really nice find
