Hi everyone.

During my 8 trips out I have found several interesting items other than the usual empty cartridge cases and .22 calibre slugs.

The 2 coins are an 1845 English Shilling and a 1910 Australian Threepence.

The other item was most interesting. I dug it up in 3 pieces and the first and largest piece was measured at 16" deep when it came out. I was using the 8" Commander mono coil. My wife believes it was used to snuff out the candles. I was really amazed that this little coil would pick up this piece at such a depth.

Like the coins Axtry and I think your wife could be right about the candle snuffer. Yes I got to agree with you about the 8" coil, They are very much under rated. Well done mate

The shilling was also found with the 8" coil at about 6" deep. What is even more impressive about the cone shaped item find was that I was having trouble with my detector at the time. I had replaced all the electrolytic caps and the detector hadn't been working properly for a couple of weeks and this trip was the first time in 3 weeks that I could put on the 8" coil and it functioned to an acceptable degree. To get down the 16" without being ground balanced properly was extremely impressive. Had Mechanic check it out and he got it working and a week later found my first piece of gold with this detector and the 8" coil, a miniscule 0.09 grams at about 1" deep, less than 1/10th of a gram.
