Excalibur finds silver and gold at Takapuna beach cut


I didnt really plan to go detecting tonight, but weather was asking for it.
Decided to go to Takapuna, to check how is sand movement out there... Glad i did!
Upon arrival to main Entrance, found a wide long cut down to clay and old beach foundation! never seen such erosion at Takapuna in many years! the cut was at high tide level, so i had all the time i need
...Sorry didnt make any pictures of the cut....

I've spent all evening doing cut with awesome results :

Minor stuff:

And for the goodies:

*1940 penny in well preserved condition by clay
* sixpence
* brass religious medalion
* RNZA badge -The Royal New Zealand Artillery

Best 3 :

* Massive Silver wedding band , marked 92.5 (points at age)
* Horseshoe pin (marked sterling)
* tiny Rose gold Ring

Total time spent about 3 hours, very pleased with the result :-)

See you all at the beach
