Whats the best item you have found on your beach.

Post by cornish rattler » Fri Feb 18, 2011 11:46 am

Hi guys

just want to here from peeps who have found stuff on different beaches around the country to give me an idea of what i can expect obviously every beach is different but would be interesting what peeps have found.

Only detected on a beach twice and the best item was a £2 coin found on a Norfolk beach! I'm sure other peeps have found far more interesting stuff!...
