I found it mid December outside Longniddry beach.
I am using garret 250 (xmas gift from my lovely wife)
It was set up for any metal.
I dug it up with y laddie from around 8 cm below grass roots ( had to cut through tied bangled roots) just of the path leading to beach.
So any ideas what could that be?
There is no such a thing like stupid idea for finds in Scotland as during my first search ever I found house radiator on a beach.
Looikng forward to any replies.

Pocket Knife: - A knife which comprises one or more blades etc (referred to as devices) which fold into the side or end of the handle.
Pen Knife:- A knife which comprises a slim handle of about 4 to 6 inches in length (ish) with a single, short, 2 inch fixed blade. In appearance it resembles a scalpel! It is designed and intended for cutting quills from the feathers (Pens) of Geese in the making of quill pens. These were the forerunner to the original 'Dip Pen of my schooldays!
I have been a collector of Fountain Pens and related writing items from 1890s to 1960s, and still have a fully restored collection. I know, I just can't help it!! Regards ss47
