Faith restored with the Nox (couple for ID also..)

Post by Jamesy636 » Thu Jun 07, 2018 7:04 pm

Having recently posted about how I was struggling with my Equinox 600:
( viewtopic.php?f=291&t=101725 )

I returned to the same property today for a final hour before it is sold tomorrow. I gave the Nox another go and it produced plenty! Bizarrely my best find was the very last signal, AND it was a hole that I had previously dug on Monday. Banging signal, put the spade in and the old plug flopped over, meaning I pinpointed some other junk in the hole last time and missed the better target! (Lesson learned there)
It was a 1766 Irish half penny, with harp and words "Hibernia" think George III?
Also produced a couple of mint young head Viccy penny and half pennies to 1861 and my first half crown (big old thing that was) couple of old pound coins (that brings me up to 10 old 'uns to change at the bank!)
I found some kind of flattened clip with patterned engravings and what looks like a very old fragment. (Any suggestions appreciated)
Also old pottery fragment and I believe old glass.

Apologies for lack of scale and poor pics, hopefully you can see from the other bits and bobs.

All in all very happy, and certainly continuing to press on with the Nox :))

Cheers

Jim

Well done, the Irish halfpenny is a nice one. ::g A real shame that the site is over (though you probably already knew that :D ).

Lovely finds, well done!
Probably best to do a proper ID request for the finds and do include all the correct info, including a suitable scale or part of a modern coin. Always best to not have to apologise for lack of info and just get it all included! Thanks for sharing, Liam OooO

Item at top of 1st pic looks like a money clip and is probably silver. Very well done. You had some nice finds.
Good to see your faith is restored. I yet have to do the same after trying 2 new fields. I think they had a scrap yard in each one x;

Thanks guys, fair point Liam, I must get better. I just get too excited and have to upload content..

Just done a bit of research, I think the fragment in middle of top pic could be from a medieval hanging pot.
Not sure on the money clip, it was a continuos band without having a gap, only broke when I cleared mud from it. struggling to find one similar, thanks anyway ::g
