Best from blackpool is..........
1 victorian gold mans ring 9ct
1 childs gold ring modern 9ct
1 silver modern ring 925.
2 silver victorian brooches
Mixtures of different coinage from different years

Unfortuneately not all on the same day....

Lot of people give up on the beach if they dont find anything, but i like victorian jewellery and coins thats what i hunt for

Some very beautiful items shown here!

Well there is not a single thing from the beach I would entitle "THE" find.
(Gold still missing totally, a very few nice pieces of silver jewelry.)
But over the time of some years I managed to collect around 1500 Euro in coins mostly from beaches (Baltic sea, sweetwater lakes and Atlantic coast), which well paid for the core component of the hobby.
I found also a lot of moving on fresh air, which is usually good for health and helps at least a bit to fight the overweight. (If there wouldn't be this annoying winter time which nullifies the results ...)
Best greetings from Germany

This is probably my best beach find ,solely because its dated so exact July 10th 1896 I wonder what it meant to the owner.

No idea on my best find from a beach, But My best and worse find from a River. Was a 11c piece of carved walrus Ivory. with a brass handle, Called a flabellum. Or a Fan used in Churchs. on one side was a carved dragon on the other a Angel pushing a plough. Now the bad bit there was about 6mm broken from the end, It was looked at by 2 London Auction houses who both said The good news is its worth about £700+, The bad news, If it was not damaged £20,000. This was back in 1986 when £20,000 would have gone a long way towards buying my 1st house. It was sold for a very good price, But I still wish I had never dug the thing. Never even asked for a pic. Think that's one of the only items I ever dug. where I knew there was no chance of digging another! ;;z

I rate the cannon just because of the condition it came of the beach in, I Did not rate the William 111 Guinea, But my digging partner thought the opposite as usual, so I let him have it,

It's always nice to find local items, I have a lot of local Victorian bottles from sites all round the town. keep hoping I will find some local 17c trade tokens on the beach, Nearest so far has been a rose farthing! ::g

Pity we did not take pics of the bell when we dug it Mark, It was in a massive lump of black crud! We could just see part of the bottom edge, I will put that tiny silver Brooch buckle on for you to see
