I really haven't been out in public much with my metal detector, I've been doing a lot of detecting in my backyard and finding quite a lot of varied items. I'm only about 1/5th the way through and there's a few junkier areas I haven't tried yet so that should be fun.
Below is a few pictures of most of my finds, I'm surprised at how many 1 and 2 cent pieces I'm finding, though they did mint a heck of a lot back in the day.
|Some of the junk I've been finding.|
|Various coins, mostly 1 and 2 cent pieces.|
|My first spoon.|
|Grosvenor Plate EPNS A1, Electroplated Nickle Silver spoon.|
|Mount for a rear view mirror, wish I knew for what kind of car.|
|Patent number brings no joy.|
|Bronco toy gun, I remember having one of these when I was younger.|
|Ipana Toothpaste, I can't remember this stuff at all, best I could find is that it lost out to the competition in the early 70's, not sure when they stopped making it in New Zealand though, apparently it's still sold in Turkey.|
