So been out a couple of times with my new toy on my permission and at a crown estate beach.

Just found iron bits so far on the permission but I found an old iPhone on the beach. The battery had blown up, destroying the casing, but was still a cool find. Disposed of safely.

On the beach I found loads of tiny bits of what I think is copper. Looks like some kind of pipe work but no idea what it could be. They rang out strong 75-80's on my detector and some were quite deep. Impressed the detector could pick them up on moist sand but annoyed that I couldn't filter them out haha!

Waiting to hear on a couple of other permissions at the moment, but loving it so far!

So today I got my first pre-1980's coin find! So chuffed!

Also got a spoon that seems to have a marking on but I can't make it out and it looks about ready to vanish if I was to rub it.

Also got a button.

Really enjoying this new hobby of mine ::g

Hello and welcome to the forum from a fellow Derbyshire newbie!

Am very impressed with your find! When I have a bit more experience and am more confident and if you fancy somewhere different to go send me a message and we can sort a day out.
