I've actually put it in my shed. I don't need a machete but the handle is in good nick and has brass inserts.

It's does have a name on the blade, I'll check it out in the morning.

I wonder if it's more a meat cleaver than a machete.

After a week or so with nothing but ring pulls I found a travelers coin spill.

French Franc, a couple from Bahrain and an Austrian 10 Groschen.

The round 20 with the hole is a Greek 20 Lepta according to the 'coinoscope' app.

The really corroded one with the wavy circumference is a '10 paise' 1975 from India

The aluminium coins feel terrible in the hand, not too exciting but better than ring pulls.

First time out for a while and I tried my 12" coil on the Vanquish 540 for the first time at a spot I've been to before a few times.

The remains of a costume jewelry brooch 9 Karat gold band, a Silicon Tungsten Carbide ring and a 1/2P coin from 1971.

No ID engraved on the wedding band and it was down quite deep so I think its been there a long while.

Interesting to me that the larger coil threw up lots of deeper targets. The depth indication seemed to be wildly wrong compared to when I used my small V8 coil.

Back to an old spot now that a resident meth-head has been moved on by the authorities.

Found some old stuff at last.
1903 3 pence and a 1919 Penny
The knife might clean up well.

Is the rectangular thing a reed plate from a harmonica?

Some riverside finds from today.

A 1943 threepence and a couple of mystery finds.


Any ideas what the castellated ring thing is, its weakly magnetic. 8 segments. Maybe some brass or copper in it.


I don't know what the bullet like thing is either. Its coarsely machined brass. The mid-body ring is like a barb on a air or water fitting. The rear face isn't flat and has a pip where it was parted off on a lathe.
