Its been 5 weeks so i spent all of sundays daylight detecting. Some nice finds amongst the countless buttons and shottie shells which i didn't mind digging up . Just appreciated being set free for the day . Here are the finds after a good spit n polish . Found a few toasted coins aswell so i was suprised how good the George 4th farthing come up.

Do i spy a Key in your pile of stuff?

That handle thing looks like something from a victorian servants bell thingy?

Did Mrs Joe make any finds? or did you tell her its too cold and to stay home :lol:

Wow that’s a good bag of finds!

second photo middle and bottom row middle are clog clasps. As already said, bottom row right is a watch winder.

No idea what the hinged thing is but it’s in lovely condition and it seems to be very tactile. That’s a very good site you have there!
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
