Metal Detecting Milk Tokens and Half Pennies
I managed to get out for a quick hunt, it had been raining a little lately and I've got to say the rain has made digging a whole lot easier, plugs come out clean and the lawn doesn't end up dusty.
I found a 1965 British Half Penny, which I guess is my first foreign coin, and my most interesting find was an old milk token from Upper Hutt, Zone 40, which was once good for one pint. I first thought it had something to do with a pub, I don't equate pints with milk, it's what I ask for when I want a beer.
I suspect my lawn has many more hidden and interesting artifacts for the finding, can't wait to get out again tomorrow.
