Hi all dazza here , I have just been shown how to enter picks onto the forum , thanks to my daughter and phillip,over the years I have been coin and relic hunting with my minelab sovereign GT , I personally recon it one of the best coin detectors on the market, when I'm not swinging my 5000 around moligal , for a change of pace I go around the old timers mud brick foundations and find relics of the past ,these are only some of them,I'll show the coins another time, this Boxing Day will be my 8th trip, I go over for 2 weeks every year, can't wait for Chrissy,some of these have come from around Tasmania mostly around old sites, very good detecting around the east coast as it was a very early settled area .happy detecting and stay safe , Dazza.
