Sandscratcher Bri…

Had a 3 hour hunt at my favourite spot on Monday 15th, with me &  Charly scrapping away at the mud & in between the  shingle,  this is one of my favorite spots to sand-scratch, just with my scraping tool and a pin-pointer only, with a good result for the days scratching, of thirty nine [39] coins, which included  6-x-6d’s, plus 7-x3d or pre-decimal joeys, these multi-bri2nd21mnvsided three pence pieces, survive pretty well in certain soil conditions yet with other soil conditions they  deteriorate quite rapidly, as can be seen here the sharp corners are now nearly  roundcbvg, two post 1921 silver and nickel sixpences (6d)one was so badly eaten, by the corrosive salt its impossible to tell the date, with a George 5th  3d found in the same condition…..as for the rest they were well worn  modern coins… Roll on the storms when I am going to hammer this spot with my Silver Sabre.2, an excellent machine for this sort of work…
