Whats the best item you have found on your beach.

Post by cornish rattler » Fri Feb 18, 2011 11:46 am

Hi guys

just want to here from peeps who have found stuff on different beaches around the country to give me an idea of what i can expect obviously every beach is different but would be interesting what peeps have found.

Only detected on a beach twice and the best item was a £2 coin found on a Norfolk beach! I'm sure other peeps have found far more interesting stuff!...

how about 2 gold coins in one day from 2 different beaches!!! In Spain first one an Austrian 1915 one set into a pendant the other a French 1850s one set in an earring And these are the only 2 gold coins from Spanish beaches !!

I must say that ive had rather a few interesting finds from my local beach,suprising what it throws up now and again.

Loads of george and viccy coins,and modern too.
A 1900 vote for women suffragette badge
ww1 german ring
Boar war trenchart coin/medal
lots of brooches and hat pins,watch winders etc
Still not found any gold yet but i know my time will come eventually
Patience is the key i think as at least im still enjoying the hobby,fresh air and exercise which is the main thing to me,the finds are just a bonus
