A quick 2 hour Hunt yielded some silver coins and a nice little 9ct gold ring

Tiny  RoseGold coloured 9ct ring

A button from a New Zealand military uniform. It is made of brass and embossed with four stars surrounded by the words: "New Zealand Forces".
This button design was introduced after 1911 and used by all volunteer corps except the naval artillery.
A few Silvers

Lots of Pennies and HalfPennies 1xAussie and a few UK...the majority NZ coins

Average hunt with a little bit of everything :)

 Cheap  ring,Aussie coin...Rupert the Bear?:)

Asian aluminium Coin....have not checked what it is yet

Is the button from the NZ Air Force maybe....anyone out there know?....I have found one before but could only make out little bits as it was well corroded,this is in a little better condition.
Looks like a Crown up the top and some bird at the bottom...
