Next up at about 5 inches came this interesting Religious Pendant One side says "look unto me and be ye saved" the other has "fight the good fight of faith" really unusual, not had anything like it before, anybody got any thoughts on the age of the two items please?
A big thank you to our new member Mario for his very kind tips, they seem to work very well

The plate looks Victorian to me - from my knowledge of the Bible (sorry, I meant Google), both sides are direct quotes from the Bible, as you've probably already discovered - one from Isaiah and one from Timothy. Did think the 'fight the good fight' might be something to do with the Salvation Army? Hope you can get a good ID.

Very nice finds and a loovley thimble
Its a honor for me that you tried my settings and thanked me
Think the thimble has made beetween 1800-1900 sometimes rather.
found an copper one with similar design that is at made and marked with 1802.
Wish you and all the other quest users every time good finds and an relaxed sunday

I'm not sure what is going on with my Q40 but the last time I ran the machine over a paddock where I had recovered plenty of coins with my Safari, I hoovered up some forty plus coins with the Q40. Was it, I suppose, that I actually passed the Q40 coil over coins that I had not passed the Safari coil over? Or could it be that I am better able to interpret the signals from the Q40?
Let's see what tomorrow will bring!
