Yeah, 

Sorry I swore secrecy to details about this hunt, but since your asking.....?

if we are talking about the same place it is where you found a specie as big a a beef short rib the first day you had the 19” on the ZED... There was some deeeep ground there that held some nice ones, but they couldn’t escape from the Beast ..

I had forgotten the watch,... but didn’t you get a nice coin too? 

That place was hammered but even I found a one grammar with your 2300....,(whilst waiting on ZED brains to be delivered)

We had a good camp and good grub there.

And it is where I got my first, (of many) —-Australian swearing sessions ...for doing something stupid.

 I will never forget later when we were fishing at the hut and I caught the barra.... and you said very nonchalantly,

“Well, your a hell of a lot better fisherman than you are a  detectorist that’s for sure!!!”

Hahahaha.... priceless ?

Nah, the watch is in the photo to show the date the lump was got I think was about 84/86, young son had a RC truck he drove it back to camp in to show off to the Missus.

Back to the yarn, coin was a 1873 UK Shilling, got me going as considered that particular area had had a good flogging but obviously not with the Z & 19".

I think Trent might be time we seriously considered  a sentence in Tasmania, might be the only thing to straighten out Convict Paul.

      Gold gets stolen and stories get told.  Here is the first part of a series on the 20 greatest gold heists.  They are an interesting read.  I'm sure there are others out there you've heard of also.

      Pretty cool idea, I'd like one of each
       
      A whole new and more valuable collectable craze is about to sweep across Australia with the announcement of the Great Aussie Coin Hunt.
      Australia Post and the Royal Aus­tralian Mint will release millions of $1 coins from today featuring classic Australian themes such as the Hills hoist, a quokka and an Esky.
      There will be a different design for each letter of the alphabet with the first six available now.
      A will feature Australia Post, F for footy, I for Iced VoVo, M for meat pie, S for surf life saving and X for the tiny township of Xantippe.

      New coins will then be released every Monday until October 21, culminating in Z for the summer staple Zooper Dooper.
      But there’s a catch.
      The only way to get your hands on the iconic coins will be to make a purchase at an Australia Post store and receive the limited edition $1 coins in the change.

      “We want everyone to get involved,” Australia Post consumer and community executive general manager Nicole Sheffield said.
      “Not only will it be really exciting to hunt for all the coins and build an amazing collection, but each and every coin opens up the opportunity for wonderful conversations about quintessential Australian life.
      “It’s a great way for grandparents to connect with grandchildren, and for all of us to share our own experiences and memories with each other — both here and with friends and family overseas.”

      Australia’s unique culture will be displayed on the $1 coins from favourite foods, the boomerang and didgeridoo, sports footy and cricket, and, of course, the television classic Neighbours.
      Native wildlife favourites the kangaroo, platypus and even the quokka will have their own special coin.

      The massive campaign is the biggest minting and release of $1 coins since they were created in 1984.
      “We are excited that The Great Aussie Coin Hunt has now officially launched, giving families and all Australians the opportunity to participate in a fun and educational nationwide coin hunt,” assistant treasurer Michael Sukkar said.
