Hi soldier of fortune,all nuggs I get are detected,I've never done the crevice thing ,I like moving around too much,[GOTTA BURN THE FAT GUT SOME HOW Laughing Laughing Laughing]
When I get a bit older I'll have a go at it,that's if I can get down onto my knees and back up again What a Face
The grand kids love the gold in the table,I suppose when I've left this coil they'll have fond memories?
Good luck out there.

One of those roller coaster arvo's,pinged this nice little 1.4 gmer in virgin clay soil.Then about 7 meters away
got a beautiful wobbly warbling signal,dug down through some nice red sticky clay,then the pick hit some thing nice and solid.
The ol ticker got a bit excited and bingo a non retirement lump of rustic rust What a Face Laughing Laughing Laughing
Twas a nice arvo anyway,you gotta be in it to win it :cheers:get out there and enjoy it if you can.

Very nice nuggy there moredeep.    T06    Those deep warblers really get your heart pumping that’s for sure.  Maybe the next time you will get your retirement nuggy.     T25    Thanks for sharing your nice find and story.  


Cheers.

Mike.

About 3 meters from my rusty nugget I spotted an old scrape [I marked it out in the soil with a stick], as per usual I decided to give it a recheck.
Anyway got a nice signal below it,I think the previous person may have thought it was ground noise??
Their loss is my gain cheers

Nice feeling, isn’t it.  I once got over 7 grams out of a recently filled hole, to my surprise. 😀⛏⛏

But perseverance paid off ,beer tasted good afterwards.
And nice going anniel ,they must have thought it was rubbish,it puts a smile on ya dial  cheers

Cold,dank gloomy w/end just how I like it.
I still get a buzz out of finding these beautiful old coins,old diggers probably went without their bottle of port after losing these two coins Sad
Silver coin is a 1829 george iv shilling,very good condition,still has sharp serrations.
Some tiddlers to boot.

Gold silver and copper. Can't get much better (except, more gold and silver of course!)

Great finds. The shilling is in fantastic condition for age. Congrats!

Well sharkbait,I got an absolute buzz today,got bored with the 5000 again and dug out the little minelab sovereign.
I'm not meaning to rub it in,but it's nearly the holy grail getting a cricket buckle,coin was an added bonus.
Trashy area was perfect for the little buzz box.
A gold sovereign is my holy grail ,I'll keep praying to the coin gods for one Laughing Laughing

Out again with the little buzz box,pinged a modern 1926 threepence Laughing.
Then I got a little excited again when this round heavy thing plonked into my hand,is it the grail!!!?.
Alas a strange round copper thingy? weight for scale?,its weight is 24.4 gms.thought it might have been a welsh plug,but it was 15cm deep in the area of the 1829 coin.
No obvious marking apart from odd dent/dint.
