After an early trip to the dentist to see if they can cure my recurring abscess (another 2 weeks), pick up the antibiotics (no beer for 7 days), I dropped of my 3 treasure coins and harness pendents to the FLO. I then went on to my permission as I was practically there already. The purse loss corner had been drilled 3 days before and all the rain from yesterday meant it was pretty much out of bounds. A quick chat to the landowner confirmed the fields yet to be drilled and fortunately one of the better fields was available, rolled ready to go. It is a slight hill so the sun and wind made it good enough to go. I have had saxon to James I from it so had potential but has been quiet recently.

After a couple of hours of not much I was pleased to see the coin on the right, a Durham penny. I have a couple but I don't recall having one with the cross moline. I then went back to the purse loss corner as the sun had dried it off a little and had a chat with the landowner, just having a quick 10 minutes to see if I could find another. Sure enough right on the edge next to the road out came the Canterbury.

Not had chance to ID them. Found one rolled / rolled - drilled, a couple of inches down, Deus hedge fodder program, 9" X35.

5 day course plus 2 day clear. Those beers are looking at me from the fridge, missing me.

Nearly half of my coins are Edwards. Always great to find them
