Forgotten Metal Detector Finds

Forgotten Metal Detector Finds

Here are some of my forgotten about metal detector finds that I have found over the time Ive been metal detecting. Most have just been put in my shed and left there, so I thought I should get them up on here for you to take a look at. As your probably aware, most of them are not very valuable, but some are quite interesting. There's some decent finds here. A fair few keepers. This post will be updated with new finds regularly, so keep checking back.

Pink Pigeon I.D Ring

Pigeon ID Code: GB 05 E12253

Silver Clasp Lock

Found this nice little clasp in a wooded area not very deep. It's solid silver and has the lion stamp and the letters A.S.J stamped on the back. Pretty neat find!

1971 Half Penny Back

I found this Wren Davis Ltd milk bottle a few months ago. It was quite deep down. I was searching for a signal and seen the top of this bottle in the hole so decided to dig it up. Wren Davis Ltd has been going since the 18th Century, but I think this bottle dates from the 1960's or 70's. It has Wren Davis Ltd in fancy writing on the front.

I found this old Gordons Special Dry London Gin bottle about a year ago. It was only about 2 inches under the ground. It's in excellent condition. I think this bottle dates to around the 1920's or earlier. It has a very strange dragons head at the base.

Established In 1769



I've been looking for years as I have it, too. Mine an aqua shard. I just uploaded a pic today.
