Metal Detecting Coins and Silver Rings In My Backyard

Still finding interesting stuff in the backyard, I'm also covering ground I've already covered, so it pays to play with the settings.

Favorite find was a ring that I think may be silver, gonna get it checked out at some stage, though it does look like a toy ring, which could be a bit embarrassing. Anyway below is some video and photos of my finds.

Better Than Google Maps, Terralink International, Well For NZ Atleast

So I was looking up properties on Google Earth that I had seen on Zoodle last night and I was getting really frustrated because the quality of the aerial photos on Google Earth were crap compared to those I had seen on Zoodle, thought something was wrong with Google Earth, then I noticed Zoodle don't use Google for their maps, they use Terralink International and the quality of their aerial photos is amazing compared to what Google offers up.

I've spent most of the day looking up potential metal detecting spots using this map feature.

Just look-up a property to access a page with the map feature on it.

Or click through to 1 Thorndon Quay Pipitea Wellington to get your map on.

Silver In My Backyard

It's been awhile since I've done any metal detecting, but I had a hankering for it yesterday and I decided to go over some of the trickier spots in my backyard and guess what, I found my third silver coin ever, a 1943 New Zealand threepence. I also found a couple pennies and a buck fifty in change, the old yards still got some life left in it.

I still haven't touched the front yard, I've got big hopes for it, it's located at the end of a dead end street and very exposed, here's hoping that 50+ years of people taking shortcuts and kids playing on it have left behind a treasure trove.
