I'm ooop North and have found gold, and silver, but no hammies as yet... I live in hope (though it might also be due to only been detecting months too)

Batman, from a distance we assume that some fields up in the North are paved with hammies, obviously not the case everywhere then :D I assumed that with the much larger population it would be much more common to find them, you have my sympathies :D it's bloody hard work isn't it?I

JonM, Give yourself time to understand the Q40 and I guarantee you won't be disappointed, not so clever on the beach though, although I've only taken it there once. ::g
Lowland, Yup nearly worn everything off it now ::g
John Colin, thank you for that info

Thanks to everyone for the ID's and suggestions, very kind of you all ::g ::g ::g
