    HelloI have spotted some silver colour metal pins going through the Pebble Dash in this property I have bought, have they been used as part of the repair?

    Old lead style cable clips , possibly for telephone cable, a bit of a sod to pull out once removed fill hole with filler. you could try hitting them sideways with a hammer that will either loosen them or they will snap off .

    pull them out if you want to damage the render.

    otherwise paint them white and they will blend in.
