Sorry folks but I am in hurry but as you all studied maths and algebra I am sure you all understand the post.

Nobody ever took any interest in algebra, they were lessons you slept in .

I was thinking along the lines of covid.
RR = the virus reproduction rate (R number)
CW = Covid something
E = 1.25 the current R number for England is 1.25.......

But I’m sure it’s nothing to do with that....

I wondered what kind of response that post would get.

Well done to all that responded.

Marley, our maths teacher was one of the best in the school :thumbsup: ..... he was also nicknamed "Basher" :o so you never went to sleep in his class.

Shaggy "Roundtrees Rolo plus a Curley Wirly = €1.25", I love that, very clever. :Star:

Steve, Oxgirl, no need to place your selves in the dunces corner; not even Einstein could have worked this one out.

So here is the explanation.

Yesterday I went to what theoretically should be my best permission, but from experience I know its at best "average".

Along the top of the permission runs what is now just a little track, but it used to be a Roman Road (RR) leading to a nearby Roman Town and river crossing.

It is also close to a Civil War (CW) battle site.

The previous visits to this site have resulted in no Roman finds what so ever and a single musket ball (probably not civil war related).

I actually did find 2 coins (3 if you count a rotting decimal 2p), making it my best result there to date. They were both Edward VII (E) which was slightly unusual (they were found a bit apart so unlikely to be a purse spill). The one was a penny and the other a farthing (1.25 pence).

One of the last holes produced a glint of gold on what looked like a coin, but I knew better than to get excited and was right not to it was just a gilded button :thumbdown:

As very many detectorists have found over the years after doing the research beforehand what theoretically should be a good site often produces very little.

Sorry the story was not more interesting.
