  4. โœ… SOLVED Iron hook whatsit?

    Hi fellow TNETers. I bought a bag full of old brass and iron scrap keys, bolts, locks etc. and among these I found this rusty iron hook with an embossed ''PATD 1808'' on it, this is not helpfull as I have no idea where to check for that but I'm really curious what this was for as a simple...
  5. Anyone lost a pick-axe looking for treasure?

    IOnly a couple of hammers, one big one smaller and then I used a wire brush to get off the blask iron oxyde. My theory is someone lost it right on the beach near to the water or even burried it in wet low oxygen sand. So the metal rusted really fast and the sea salt and sand formed this compact...

    Ok that looks pretty similar to what I have found! Alright
  7. Anyone lost a pick-axe looking for treasure?

    I don't know if you know this feeling, too... you go out just to take a walk on the beach and you end up losing the point of the whole concept of taking a relaxed walk on the beach... Everytime it turns into a ''hunting excursion''... So, yesterday I had some free time, my kid was at the day...

    On my last beachwalk I found this corroded iron, pointy-thing that the waves dug up from the sand and gravel. It's about 6cm (2 inches) long, heavy solid iron, the point is less corroded so I think it's steel. Originally around the shaft there used to be a steel or iron sheet metal...

  11. Beachcombing finds

    Hello TNET friends. This Winter has alternating strong onshore winds blowing from South and North for some time now. THese keep washing up many interesting finds again and again. As I am not working currently I had lots of time to make extensive beachwalks and I have found many nice finds...
  12. ๐Ÿ”Ž UNIDENTIFIED Is this a genuine glass floater?

    So I am beachcomber... I have to admit that. I like walking on beaches and finding stuff. I have found anything one would excpect to find on a beach and even many unexpected finds have landed in my collection. Living in the Mediterranean I never hoped to find something like a glass floater, like...

    Hi fellow TNETers. Out on a walk last week near my hometown's seaside, I found this old part of something lying under some bushes. It consists of a wooden hollow cylindrical part with a larger cylindrical part at one end and an iron rod with another wooden piece, kind of like a handle. The end...

  15. ๐Ÿฅ‡ BANNER 80 early copper coins cache.

    Grear job! Congrats on the banner. Those caches are really a pleasure, trying to find everything that could possibly be around... and then another, and some more over there, feels great. Go back there, I think you may find even more. Waiting for the next title update, hahaha.

  17. Summer end's Gold, Fall's beginning Platinum (eyeball finds)

    Thank you peperj, well yes, I have to work with my eyes, metal-detecting isn't really legal here in Greece because of all the antiquities lying burried under the ground. One can get a permit but it is a very controlled bussiness in terms of localities and all finds must be reported and checked...
