Detecting on a new permission today. House was built in the early 30s and is a rental so a lot of recent activity. Figured it would be full of a lot of junk but it wasn’t bad.



One of the first finds was this silver (sterling I think) pendent.

New Brighton Tower 14th Eisteddfod. 19th Sept 1914.

Makers mark has an A&B then an Anchor Lion and P which lines up with silver smiths in Great Britain.

The tower was dismantled in 1919 and the Beatles appeared to play in what was left of the ballroom until a fire in the 1960s.

Also dug a nice IH Penny. 1898

Old maps don’t even show a house within a half a mile of this location in the 1800s so hard to say how it ended up there.

Also found a couple of wheatie’s, one dating back to what looks like 1927 or 1929.

Nice lighter, some clad, couple brass pieces (a snuffer, or bell piece) and what looks like a costume jewelry piece...maybe not. Has some stones set but can’t tell. Might have to do some tests.

Oh and a nice dog tax tag

WVExplorer: is the bullet all metal, or how did you find it?

It’s actually all plastic. It was in a hole with a bottle cap. I love finding non metal objects (Like marbles) while metal detecting. I saw it before the cap and thought it was the target but the pin pointer wasn’t going off. It was odd until I realized it was plastic.

Thanks Crusader. Odd how it ended up here in the states. Maybe something brought back from one of the World Wars

Congratulations on the productive hunting. It does make your mind wonder about how things ended up where they do.
