First finds with my new Equinox 600

Post by Trev » Mon Apr 15, 2019 9:30 pm

A couple of weeks ago I purchased a new Equinox 6oo. I was a little concerned and disappointed by some of the comments regarding poor quality/breakages etc. However, I am over the moon with the equinox up to yet it has performed faultlessly. I live in south Shropshire and have a lot of farm land available for detecting. Today I was detecting in pasture land and found these 3 items- a spoon, cannon ball and musket ball. They were all found within a 3 metre circle and at roughly the same depth 6-7 inches. I would be interested to know about the spoon if anybody has any thoughts. It has no marks, I think it is made of brass and it measures 6 inches long.

Maybe not a spoon. It looks flat !? Could be a clock pendulum ? You don’t give any sizes so could be anything from a Grand Father clock (unlikely) or smaller Grand Mother clock or even a Skeleton clock.
Age unknown but not likely to be older than late 1800’s to recent. (If it’s off a clock)

It is definitely spoon shaped (dished), it is quite difficult to take a photo which shows the depth. I did not offer any dimensions in the original post because the items were not for ID, I just commented that it would be interesting to know the thoughts of others. However it measures just under six inches long and the spoon at its widest is one and a half inches.

As it happens I have a 1930's jam spoon from my grandma which is very similar in shape of the spoon bowl and proportions (though the style of mine decorationwise and metal-wise is clearly a later version of yours). Perhaps another relic of a long ago picnic. :))
