    A find to tease

    Hey guys and gals,

    Not sure what era, or actually anthing about this, but it did give me that feeling that its the right spot to hit with my new metal detector when I finally get it!

    I found this shard of pottery on some mud flats, also some great old bottles, but they were all broken so I didn't bother taking them.

    If anyone knows anything about identifying pottery then it would be great to know what I'm looking at (and my wife thinks its 1800's and I think its 1900's)

    Take care

    Re: A find to tease

    hmmm well we had some wild weather here over the past week, with cyclonic winds, massive rain yesterday it broke and it was perfect day, so my wife and I headed to the ocean, and I decided to see what I could find the mud flats.

    heaps of little rock pools, a whole of heap of stuff washed ashore, and that little bit of pottery was the nicest... I also found a ballast stone and some other bits of junk. can't wait to hit the place with the detector.

    Re: A find to tease

    Thanks desertfox

    slight problem, I just received an email from well known, highly recommended famous metal detecting shop in the USA that has advised me that I can't have my metal detector because Minelab have some thing going where they don't let the shops export their detectors overseas.

    I don't want to buy the detector here in Australia because in all honesty I don't want to be charged $300 to $500 more for the same detector and pay for the 'bonus' items which come with the boxed detector.

    So if anyone can help me out with the weight and size of the box of a explorer se - It would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm going to organise for a friend to buy it on my behalf and then work out the cost to post it from the states to me in Australia.
