The amateur metal detectorist

I’m no longer an amateur metal detectorist. I’ve had four trips out now with my metal detector and on the last last trip I found a ring pull from a drinks can. This is the holy grail of finds. It will be pride of place in my collection, well at least until I find a bottle top.
I also found a biggish lump of metal. Into my finds jar they have both gone.

On my third trip out with my metal detector, I struck gold. O.K. that may be a bit of an exaggeration but I did find three bits of metal.
Hence forth these will be called my Bronze Age Collection, well at least that is what I’m going to call them when I put them for sale on Ebay LOL
I have a funny feeling I’ll be finding more bits of scrap metal. It won’t go to waste. It is going to be put in a glass jar and displayed next to our sea glass collection.
