Back out on the land yesterday for another few hours and enjoying the time out . Although we have had plenty of rain this past week the land was surprisingly fairly stable and not the slippery mush I assumed it was going to be , I have had times on here where I am slipping and sliding more than walking .
With just a few hours to spare I chose one area which as always played ball in the past , plenty of signals with the usual pile of scrap . I had five decent sounding signals and all proved to be deep busted up drinks cans , now I know that these signals give off a certain sound which after the fifth can are unmistakable , all part of learning the sounds from the Deus Lite . I am still on the hot programme and enjoying it very much and is does like a button which on a few occasions had me wondering if it was a small hammered coin but sadly not .

I had equal amounts of rubbish from ring pulls , shotties and the ever annoying shreds of tin foil , seem to be finding a lot of this at the moment . The heart murmured a bit when I saw the glint of Gold in the hole only to be deeply let down by a bottle top doing a grand job of fooling me into thinking I had hit top prize button , not this time though :thumbdown:

The buckle would have been nice of it was whole , nice patina and decoration and a couple of odd bits and pieces . Half a spindle whorl and the only coin was rolled and shaped into a miniature cone , I have had two like this so far , completely curved over equally both halves . The best find was a rather withered looking Roman brooch but I am not complaining .

Decent amount of finds, Paul.
Sometimes half a buckle, is better than no buckle.
Thanks for showing and describing the complete session.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

Great to see a big pile of finds, even if the finds aren’t in the super exciting category. Although some might say the roman brooch is exciting though :thumbsup:

You are really getting a grip of the sounds now by the sound if things - exciting!
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Seems you're going great guns with the machine, Paul and that looks to have been the sort of day which kept you busy :thumbsup:

Well done on making the effort Paul. Somehow, sometimes it’s worth piling all the bits up and standing back to look. It gives you a small sense of satisfaction on effort.
Busy field, there should be something nice in there, somewhere :D

There is something very satisfying in getting to grips with a new machine and finding small things with it. You can be confident that you are not missing much,. It is about establishing a partnership with a machine. In many ways, as a 'solo' detectorist most of the time (I hardly ever see a living soul) i feel my machine is a partner and never feel lonely when I am out.

There is clearly good occupation and there will be a clutch of good stuff on there somewhere. :thumbsup:
