Ok so I managed a couple of trips out to the fields this week. As they say "you got to make hay while the sun shines". Or is it "you got to get out when your not in lockdown". first trip was an evening jaunt to a local permission here in south Wales where I found a couple of very toasted Queen Victoria's and a nice George 5th 1930 silver sixpence. second outing was a day trip to West Wales to find a couple of Silver hammered coins a lovely little silver fleur de lys an old bell and I think a post medieval buckle. I also took the opportunity to drop off a bottle of wine to the land owner in thanks for the permission to wander at will. Happy Days.

Nice to pop a couple of Hammered coins in amongst the haul
Looks to have been a busy and used area
Cheers for showing and letting us all know that stuff is still happening out in the world :lol:

Firstly well done on getting out detecting.
Good array of finds, would have been happy with just the 1930 Sixpence.
Wonder what the Fleur de Lysis from ?
Cheers, :thumbsup:

Cheers fellas, I'm just so glad that I'm able to get out in the fields for now. not to worry though it wont be long I hope before we are all free to wander the countryside swinging a coil in search of long lost treasures. :thumbsup:
