Had a pretty kick ass day at the old shore. The etrac didn't find me much, but the eyeball finds were plentiful! There's a few bottle stoppers, an old "Climax" padlock, spoons, clay pipe parts, clock gear, Victorian bling and a beautiful Royal Artillery hat badge. Can't wait to go back after the next big rain and see what else washes out of the hillside!!

Hotdog, that hat badge is KILLER!!!!! What's the age & story on it? I think that's one of the best relic pieces I've ever seen, and the condition is incredible, too. I believe that needs to be properly displayed on our banner, RM Wink

Tremendous hunt, with a bunch of nice goodies (I like the spoons), but that hat pin in the star of the show Yes

Thanks Joe. It's definitely a looker! It was never attached to anything and is in damn good shape. I think it may be WWI or just post. It's a Royal artillery hat badge and dates to the 1920's. Thank you for the banner nod Happy

So will you leave the etrac at home next time?Think
   Love the banner worthy hat badge , it is cool that all of the hardware is there for it.
Is that a spyglass on the left side of the picture , if it is that is a good find too.
   With a spot like that I think I'd be praying for rain just to see what washes up.

Thanks for commenting fellas. That's a bottle on the left. It might be a cream bottle or something along those lines. Similar to an old milk bottle but not a milk bottle. There aren't any markings or embossing on it so not sure what it is lol

Z man, I counted 13 relic pieces on the banner, which doesn't include any bling. That's a good amount of relics when we only have about 30 banner finds Emo

RM, treasure is treasure, no matter where, or HOW you find it. You should be awfully proud of that piece!

It has a special place in my finds cabinet. I have a lot of respect for that piece. I'm sure it has a story to tell...it may be a story I wouldn't want to hear though. I think it was just discarded with their trash and held no significance to the owner. Yes, I'm very proud of it, and will give it the attention it deserves!
