1st ringing crotal bell and 1806 hibernia

Post by Samwhite »

Few finds from my pastureland permission both around 6" deep. Found with a garret ace 150.
Found 3 crotal bells so far but this one is complete and actually rings. Also a 1806 George iii hibernia farthing. If anyone has any ideas of how old the crotal bell is id love to hear from you.

Well done. I've never yet had a ringer.
As for age, have a look at this article. It is very good and should answer your question.

That crotal bell is unusual - drilled hole but looks undecorated :-/ Usually undecorated are later - 18 to 19th century but drilled holes are earlier. Maybe it’s the angle of the photo and the loop isn’t drilled? Overall I’d still say later, post 1700, just by the proportions and the more obvious central seam. Older than the other two you’ve found. Nice find :D

Looks like you are doing well for finds and enjoying the hobby too :D

Thanks oxgirl. I'm now addicted to the hobby and can't get out on the field enough. I've been out about 10 times now. I'm thinking I need to upgrade my metal detector as I'm only

using a ace 150 although I'm finding stuff I think when I get a better one I'll be able to do the whole area again. I'll post my finds so far below. 👍 Also had a Elizabeth 1st silver sixpence but can't add photo on this post but have posted pics in other posts.

Hey Sam

You know you can pay the round pounds in to yr bank - find a few more help with the detector price lol

you do well with what you got - better than me - would love a crotal bell - even with no dong - lol

Strick with it for 6 months - The Few Simplex Issues will prob be ironed out - and you might pick one up at a good price - but there are many detectors that might be good for you

so if you really feel you need more do a lot of research

as think there are two completely new detector lines coming out soon - don't get caught up with an excitement about new machines - I did a bit but don't regret getting the simplex - I just need more field time - yes I think its got a few issues - but Nokta are good at talking to people and I don't see the issues not being issues in the future

People do need to give them the time to work out if its an isolated one machine or its a global machine issue that really need looking into

So I am sticking with My Simplex - till I have learned it more The small quirks don't make me want give up on its yet - work in progress

Paul
