Hi all
Cracking day today, crop starting to show now, ground is perfect, flat firm and damp. Lot of buttons , two roman coins, Vicky and George V pennies, two George II halfpenny’s, George III penny, nice hunting button, thimble and a jetton. I will get some better pictures in the week

And chuffed with these beauties below

Roman Key

1st Century Brooch, possibly a Keyhole type, shame the top part is gone

Durotriges Stater, Cranbourne Chase type, could do with a clean but worried it may just obliterate it

Very good selection of finds, Steve.
Your Stater is from your local tribe, which probably makes it extra special.
Looking forward to seeing the upcoming photos of the other finds.
Cheers, :thumbsup:
Dave.

My favourite find too :thumbsup:

Its so tactile, still usable! if only I could find the chest it belongs to :lol: and to think it was probably a huge loss to the person, quite a common style on the PAS so confident its Roman :thumbsup:

I wil get some better pics up later in the week (once I sort out Sundays finds)
