Nice one, that's the best approach to ask and common sense always prevails in these circumstances.

A few weeks on and got a bucketfull of old rusty pesetas and a odd mix of centimos,there seems to be an annual loss of sand here with winter storms. as at the road side the sand level is a good 3 feet above the beach ,so in my way of thinking every year the years droppings get washed out to the sea,tho where the sand gets cleaned there are mounds of scooped up sand that yield even more pesatas,fingers crossed ,ever the optimist lol.

had to replace my whites xlt with my minelab musketeer,and now after a months use I have got the tones off to a fine art ,,no screen on this one as you know ,but its finding old & new coinage perfectly ,as well tho I have got the finger trawl through fine sand perfected,no coin is safe lol,its just a shame ive only got 18 days left as there is still 3 miles of beach to sweep for me to find that elusive gold ring [:) l;.
