Largest find of the year.

Just thought that I would show my largest find of the year. It was uncovered for a couple of days in the spring. It has now been totally buried again. It was on a beach called Boobies bay in Cornwall, the rest of the ship is nearby. More information can be had on the internet.

What was the ship called and when did it wreck?



As always, any post I make here is solely my opinion based on my own experience and knowledge. Feel free to disagree.

Just back from the same beach, masses of sand still there.
Last year on the same beach a man came over and asked if I knew what the coin was he found. Turned out it was what they call in Cornwall a pillar dollar, which I think is a 8reale silver coin dated 1741.

Very interesting. Are you running your detectorpro or possibly a pi unit?

The machine I was using was one of the old DP Waders which I have had for years.
My main detecting is done on our very rocky beaches, I don't think any other coil would stand up to the hard knocks it gets by being banged on the Granite all day long, especially when working the long narrow gullies. Paired with a Vibra probe 580 I have had up to 200 lg fishing weights in a day and 158 coins in another day as the tides seem to sort the coins into certain areas.
I bought a nearly new Wader with the larger coil at auction as a spare as they are very rare in Britain for about £160 but it is not as well balanced as the 8in coil, last year I took it down the beach and found 2 large Gold rings in six hours.
Storms now started so it may improve the detecting by stripping the summer sand off the beaches.
