Ive been doing well lately the sand has shifted on the beach , been finding pre 47 sixpenses and shillings old half pennies and lots of 2nd world war 50 caliber Browning M2 bullet casings these are interesting as they have head stamps  on them so you can trace which American Arms factory made them and the date of manufacture , will post some pictures of the coins and casings during the week.

Normally the numbers on the bottom represent the date of which the round was made, like on your close up pic, L.C would be the makers mark and 44 the date (1944). The bottom pic looks like .303 rounds which where used on rifles such as the Lee Enfield

An uncle of mine once found a huge sea rod and real..160 yards away there was a 25+ pound cod at the end of the line. The fish probably dragged the whole lot out to sea if the the fisherman wasn’t holding the rod at the time. He might have been telling a good story but it could have been true...
