My Post Office in Dumbleyung & My Metal Detecting – Relic & Antique Bottle Display

Now that I am getting familar with YouTube.com I thought that I would make a video about my normal workplace at the Dumbleyung Post Office in Western Australia.   My Business partner Natalie and I bought the Post Office around 12 months ago, done alot of renovations, painting, re-arranging (much to some peoples dislike!)

I also have all of my good antique bottles on display, as well as most of my good metal detecting finds.

Please allow me to give you a tour of my Post Office…

2008 Favourite Metal Detecting Finds

2008 has been a pretty good year for me Metal Detecting.

I have definately paid for both of my metal detectors with some of the Metal Detecting finds I have made this year.

I have found quite a few rings, both Gold and Silver, all of which I have found Beach Metal Detecting in Perth Western Australia.

The best ring would have to be a beautiful nine diamond gold ring which I found at a Perth Beach… I found this out of pure luck, a lady had lost her Medi Alert Bracelet and she asked me to search for it for her, on the way to the location, I was wading in some water, with my Excallibur as I waited for her down the beach and bammo! I found the best ring so far!

I also had some fantastic luck on one day finding myself over $250 in coins in a 20 square metre area on a beach also, all of these coins were washed in that area by the tide, and the coins varied in years, and were not placed there by one person, they would have belonged to hundreds of people. It’s amazing how the tide washes and drops coins and rings in certain areas of a beach.

I have also had some great finds metal detecting at the local old ghost town, no buildings exsist there anymore, but I found the remains of an old road, bricks, burnt patches of soil, brken pieces of bottles and so forth.

I found around 80 old Australian Pre-Decimal coins, a nice gold Heart shaped locket, plenty of other interesting relics, even some nice old vintage number plates.

Its been a great year, my next tool of the trade I am saving for is a Quad Bike, which will enable me to access potential metal detecting areas more easier.

The photos you can see here on this post are some of my favourite 2008 finds!

I am really looking forward to 2009, I am going to have much more time on my hands to get out and metal detect other areas.

Old Western Australian Numberplates

It’s amazing what you find when it comes to Metal Detecting out bush. So far in the last couple of months I have found 3 old vintage Western Australian Numberplates with my E-Trac Metal Detecting while coinshooting

The number plates below are pretty old, especially the two Wagin Numberplates….. nice addition to my Metal Detecting Finds Catalogue!

Also been pretty busy uploading photos of my Old Australian Bottles so far I have around 240 photos of my bottles in the gallery, I still have another 100 or so photos to upload, plus plenty more photos to take of other bottles and jars I have found.
Not only that but I have found some new old Bottle Dumps around town, so I need to find the time to go out to those places and dig them up, most of which the bottles are laying just under the surface, so digging them should be no problems, just a bit worried about digging up deadly snakes laying under the leaf litter.
I also joined a great Antique Australian Bottles website, BottleGuide.com.au last night, it costs $33 per year and is definately well worth the money, the information they provide on all Antque Australian Bottles and Jars is amazing! I have found quite a few of my bottles on the site, not surprised to see that alot of my bottles are not worth that much, but still I am not dissapointed in finding out that!
Well it has been raining cats and dogs here, the soil is very wet, which is great news for my Metal Detecting Adventures, so tomorrow I am definately off out bush to do some metal detecting.
