From my Last Thursday Gloucestershire search.
Worn Elizabeth I Sixpence, a bit clipped, but dead flat. It has a little hole a not sure if this was made to use it as jewellery?
A nice 1 Anna 1948 Pakistan coin so nice an early in the foundation of Pakistan.
Off this field I’ve had a handful of Napoleon III coins, 3 or 4 Swiss 5 and 10 Rappens, several Italian Lira and even a British West Africa coin. This field is truly a multinational field :D

Very nice finds :thumbsup: It’s funny how fields throw up things from far flung places. The field where my Senegal coin surfaced a few months ago gave me an Australian army button on Saturday. I think it’s a WW1 type but it could be later. We truly live in an international world now :D
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Almost like someone has dumped their leftover travel currency.
Interesting to see one of the first mintage of Pakistan coins.
Where will you be finding them from next time ?
Under the ground they all say.
Which countries will you be finding them from ?
England of course, that`s where i`m detecting
Hmm ok, coins from which countries will you be digging up in England, from under the ground ?
Looking forward to your next finds, :thumbsup:
Dave.

That looks like targeted wearing too, like just on the round of her face.....

Makes you wonder whats been happening in that area to have such an array of coinage....
I think it has more secrets to give up yet.... :thumbsup:

This field is next to a church and the church fetes have been held on it from before the first WW up until the 1950s. It has a bridle way and a public foot path running through it. It never fails to return a handful of predecimal coin. Never returned any jewellery...... yet. :thumbsup:
