I'm happy with that for now but I'm still after something 1800s. Gold sovereign is what I'm looking for or it would be nice to get a 1893 half gold sov, the last one available sold for 1.2mil

Could be slightly hard to trace it though, I already done a quick research.

Thanks for looking

BTW any cutlery you find I would check it out properly as some is worth a lot by makers and being solid silver but im sure you already know this and the old ammo dispose of as soon as you can with our draconian laws unless you have a license for that particular  ammo you can do time, also being that old it will be unstable

 

But looks like you will hit the  jackpot sooner than later, if you want to expand I would suggest getting a prospecting license and go out bush and find  some small gold nuggets  do old river beds etc  when I was working out in the bush drilling I used to go out with a friend and it was amazing at how much gold  we collected in a short period of time, not going to pay mortgages off super fast but still a nice little earner :)  :)

Cheers dicky, I'm onto the silver cutlery from back in the day, I have not cleaned any up yet to check it though.

I have a plan for all the blank rounds so I might just go put them back in the ground until needed.

GOLD!!! That's what got me started, found my first few nuggets when I was around 8, I still get out to the fields occosanially, however I am aware that I don't need to travel far at all to pick up a few small nuggets. I have heard of gold in the hills and have found evidence. There is a tunnel we discovered in the bush that I'm still yet to venture into.

It's a bit worrying digging up those love rounds, you can see one there that I hit with the pick while trying to find it and it broke. All rounds are dated 1941-43 so far. I did meet a bloke that was digging up live 9mm rounds from out at this spot. Hopefully I don't dig up a live grenade, seen a few stories of that happening

Ooh, Florin, pre 1946.

That's a few dollars worth of silver there.

 

I think I may know where you are looking, I spent some time out there as a teenager and used to find heaps of those blanks and badges.

 

Hurry up and find that 1930 Penny we all know you are looking for  :)

I'm not after the 1930 penny, the one I'm chasing is the 1813 holy dollar or a nice gold sov of any year though 1920 would be a nice bonus, would be retiring after that. I just picked up a ring this arvo made from a 1922 penny or half penny, pretty cool

I got chatting to a fella at the Leonora pub one night, after we'd been talking about prospecting for a while he pulled out a nugget from his bag that was easily as big as a coke can, sat it on the bar and told me he'd been out there for 3 days and made himself enough to retire on!! I believe him too theres still some remote areas out there that have no claims on em! :)

Jeez, I was just made aware of this post today, guess I foreseen the grenade thing happening. Well we did find grenades but the police took mine

Update, chucked in my job and I'm a full time treasure hunter living the dream, over 2000 nuggets in 9 weeks last year over 1200 nuggets for only six weeks this year. Everyone was making it sound like gold was hard to find in the beginning
