Not quite two a penny

Walk between Sandsend and Whitby, eyes peeled for tell tale cracks in otherwise unassuming pebbles, and your efforts will be rewarded... this little fella is about 7cms ... but have found corkers up to 15cms ... Good thing is that the average walker doesnt have a clue what to look for, leaving the place littered with the nice stuff for the trained eye to eak out.

Hello John::g A nice looking Amonite. It's good to see that so many detectorists are now showing their interest in fossil collecting which, along with pottery sherds, seem to be an additional side-line to our hobby. It's a subject that's proving popular on the forum and there are already some excellent entries on the subject.

The Whitby coast-line was my playground as a youngster where we hunted for fossils and glass fishing net floats which are rather rarer these days than fossils! It's still a great place for collecting decent fossils though. Good luck with your experienced 'eye's only' foraging.
