Not that Many finds over the last 2 weekends, so will summarize here:
So Trip #8 was last Sunday at Takapuna during the lowest tide 0.2 .
I wasn't trying to hunt but tried to locate the end of the sand beach and the starts of clay bottom.
The result was 2$ coin , Smoking pipe and the part from old Photo camera.
Based on the marking Wollesak Opt.CO and the "pat feb 6 1900" it is a part of
(1900) Rochester Century Box
Then On a Trip #9 with Chris we went to Takapuna at the low tide again and i finally located the Clay Bottom, but it was already dark and i didnt really want to be chest deep in the water in Pitch black :-(
My findings from the trip are in the middle column on the picture above.
And here is a close up of the ring (no marking on it- so i think it is brass) :
And Final trip with my Gold Bug was to one of Milford Parks where i found nice pocket knife that i tried to restore, but without hope, 1 Penny 1960 and 6$ - all that in just under 1 hour.
Thanks for stopping by and Have Fun!
