    Pushing an Ounce!

    The wear and tear on that hand shows that it was well earned. The 20 to 30 grams are the best size to keep.🤪
  3. Sometimes the research is more fun than the finding. The tensioner were great, a bit like the piece of a broom handle my Dad use to make when I was a kid. Very similar to the titanium one on my ultra light hiking/bushwalking tent. But the findings is hard to beat.
  4. He was a great member, I never met the guy but wished I had. R.I.P.
  5. It is easy when you know how, but hard to learn. Great photos 🥇
  6. Doc did the green Garret Deepseeker inspire you to select green and the G from Garret.
  7. Good to see an Aussie component in it. Tasmanian Oak and Victorian Ash come from two near identical eucalypt species, E. Delegantensis and E. Regnans. While there are some minor differences between the two types of timber that are listed below, there are a remarkable number of similarities, making them often interchangeable.
  8. You will be surprised how pretty the little dirty beast will be after it has had long beauty bath in ACID 🤩

  10. This is the Australian equivalent of Memorial Day and why it is so important Origins of Remembrance Day Why is this day special to Australians? At 11 am on 11 November 1918 the guns on the Western Front fell silent after more than four years of continuous warfare. The allied armies had driven the German invaders back, having inflicted heavy defeats upon them over the preceding four months. In November the Germans called for an armistice (suspension of fighting) in order to secure a peace settlement. They accepted allied terms that amounted to unconditional surrender. The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month attained a special significance in the post-war years. The moment when hostilities ceased on the Western Front became universally associated with the remembrance of those who had died in the war. This first modern world conflict had brought about the mobilisation of over 70 million people and left between 9 and 13 million dead, perhaps as many as one-third of them with no known grave. The allied nations chose this day and time for the commemoration of their war dead.
  11. That is big lost to all of use, and I think many more here in Australia will agree with me. All the best wishes to his family.

    Equinox Relic Hunt

    GREAT FIND, It is a slot machine token 1890 to 1940's Not worth the postage to get slabbed. Since it is worth .25¢ to 50¢ less in Quantity The numbers can go as high as 50,000 and stand for the individual machines ,machine operators or the businesses were located. The bow tie is a stock widget design used as a fill on any number of styles of generic tokens. There are thousands of different nu8mbers and hundred of thousands of tokens out there. Due to the number in use and the number of years used. (Cited from: https://www.cointalk.com/threads/token-good-for-5c-in-trade-tiny-bowtie-design.307838/)

    Spam Attack

    Thanks Chris, I tried to get the message out that the attack was happening. I guess there will be a few of us that have many hundreds of Email from the forum notification system to delete. Glad you have got on top of them.

  18. This link gives a good view of what influence the price of gold and platinum. Gold verse Platinum In 2008, the price of platinum dropped from $2,252 to $774 per oz,a loss of nearly 2/3 of its value. By contrast, the price of gold dropped from ~$1,000 to ~$700/oz during the same time frame, a loss of only 1/3 of its value.
