Hi Metalmicky,

I think that you have just boosted the tourist trade for Praa Sands in 2012. If you go back; I bet the place will be full of metal detectorists, =)) =)) =)) =)) =)) =)) ::g

that's a terrific find Oliver. i had a Elizabeth hammered sixpence on a beach near Harlech and a Charles 1 hammered shilling on Llanfairfechan beach, North Wales. I think the latter was from a shipwreck, the Elizabeth was from an area where the council had been dumping stuff on the beach to counteract erosion.

Found three rings in total on Blackpool, 2 gold and 1 silver......
One of the rings is a mens gold signet ring with three engraved letters possibly persons initials.
Hallmarked 1894.... The same year the tower was completed, obviously large crowds in them days.

When I first started detecting I found an 8 track stereo plus speakers buried in the dunes at Conway Morfa. They were nicely bagged up and in working order. Obviously been hidden for a reason probably not a good one.
Besides that a silver fob watch, a few rings and loads of Dinky toys.

BTW "8 track stereo" shows how long I've been trying to find that elusive hoard...LOL
