Hardly. I don't have hundreds of bits of archaeology in a cupboard at home or sell any on EBay!

Nor do I. But I do have hundreds of bit's of wire, fencing staples, bent nails, two horseshoes, cartridge heads, bits of tin and silver paper, bolts, a broken pair of plyers, screwdriver shaft and 100's of other bits of tat- but sadly no ring pulls or toy cars! This very day I found my first coin in months - a 1964 threepenny piece. Pure joy!

This is the type of junk 99% of ordinary honest detectorists find when they go out for the day Nigel, not the -1% of night hawks you keep referring to that sweep scheduled sites illegally. We all think they are scum as well - but try to keep a sensible head on and not over-exaggerate!

Nuff said.
