I’m currently travelling around the country and am always on the lookout for likely metal detecting sites. I found an old railway station in Victoria which is no longer active, the station itself is gone and the railway is now a walking/riding path. Looking at old photos of the station I headed into the scrub where the old station masters house was with the X-Terra 705.
Found mostly old junk with a couple buttons and a harmonica around the old house with a lot of broken old bottles and pottery. Moving away from it I finally came across an old coin, a 1925 Halfpenny.
Within the next 30 minutes I picked up 3 more coins including my first Gothic florin.
The florin date is in roman numerals on the reverse, in this case it’s lxxx which is 80. I found all the coins on the edge of thick scrub which was impossible to detect in. Probably more coins there but they will have to stay there for now.
