    My stellar day - GOLD COIN + 18CT GOLD WATCH

    I went on a one-day business trip to an obscure tiny township and managed to procure an address of my acquaintance’s old relations who live there. Simple as that - I wanted to MD their property. They don’t own a farm, just have an urban plot with an oldish house built in the mid-1950. Though it didn’t sound too promising, I needed a bit of relaxing. My activity was limited to their huge backyard. As I expected my MDing did not start on the right footing. I was pulling out a lot of modern alum bits. Watching me, my hosts were grinning, ‘What do you expect to find?’ they asked me. I used that occasion to ask if I could keep my finds. Still grinning this lovely elderly couple nodded in consent. The next target sounded just like another modern can. I was stunned to see some sweet yellow in the hole. Even before examining my find, I plopped to the ground. Literally. Only when I calmed down a bit, I began to look for marks and I wasn’t surprised at all to see ’18 ct’ on that Seiko watch bracelet attached to a gold wrist-watch. But it was time to resume MDing. The very next signal brought me a vintage sterling ring. Though not very sightly it is rather chunky. I would date it to the 1930’s – 1940’s. I continued my search and this time the target leapt out of the ground and I saw a ‘goldie’ on a heap of dirt. Then my ‘processor’ got jammed and it took me ages to realize that I found my 3rd GOLD COIN and the first British one – a half sovereign of 1866. Still quite shaky I pulled myself together to continue MDing and got 2 x1900 sixpences in a row (one damaged by a plough). Then came a relic time: a musket ball, a button with some Jewish pattern on it, several buckles, an old thimble, a woven pattern 2-piece button, a very early safety razor and a half penny of 1896. I honestly showed my hosts all the finds and still they allowed me to keep them. I will certainly give some nice gift to those nice people who let me in.

    sweet finds and the gold coin is near the tops of my list! BANNER
    My philosophy is: It's none of my business what people say of me and think of me. I am what I am and do what I do. I expect nothing and accept everything. And it makes life so much easier.
