    First big silver coin for the year, and nice old toy gun

    Hi all, hope every one is well. I had 2 afternoon hunts this week with my Equinox. On my first hunt i found a nice old toy gun. It was undamaged until i dug it up and broke the barrel Had to glue the barrel back on. I also found a old lighter and a British penny. On the second afternoon hunt i found my first large silver coin for the year. A 1943 2 1/2 Shilling. It rang up hi on the Equinox 33 on the vdi. I also found some copper pennies and some other bits and pieces.

    Thanks for looking and Happy Hunting to all.

    Great stuff Brendan! The only 2 1/2 shilling I have is the one I bought last year. Didn't you find a 2 shilling last week? That's a big coin in my book too. Well done!
