After an extremely busy run up to Christmas at work, I finally managed to get out for a morning’s detecting. First time out in over 8 weeks.
I decided to visit one of my favourite permissions and take the landowner a few bottles of gin. We had a chat for about an hour, talked about our donation to the Cirenceser and then I set out over the horse fields to the fete field. This field never fails to throw up a few pre-decimal coins, and if you’re lucky, silver.
It was a pretty cold day, with the sky full of something, and that something was snow,,, plenty of it.
Anyway, it was a good few hours, with the ground giving up some nice goodies.
A really nice lead dolphin mount, a buckle with the plate still attached, another decorative mount with faces (I’ve seen these before but can’t find one online to compare), a couple of thimbles and the remains of Lady Penelope's Rolls Royce. I also found a small roman grot, a first for this field.
I received a new pair of Garrett gloves for Christmas and these were great, warm and waterproof and certainly needed.
It was good to be back out searching again,
I may even venture out again tomorrow 😁

First time a member has dug up a Rolls Royce :lol: You should get a special prize for that! Love the lead fish type decoration. Cool 8-)

Lucky man, the majority of us have our noses pressed up against the window wishing we could go out and play! Hope you get out again soon, whilst you still can!
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

A few bottles? How many's "a few"? Depending on the rate of bottles per acre I might have a bit of ground you can have a waft over :thumbsup:

Glad you were able to get out and were rewarded by a great range of finds (love the mount). Anything on the grot, or is it wiped?

Well done on getting out, Shaggy and uncovering more finds.
If you get the chance and it`s not too cold, take the opportunity tomorrow.
New Tiers will be announced and if Boris goes live in the late afternoon, could be L3 :thumbdown: .
Cheers and good luck, :thumbsup:

Well done for getting out Shaggster :thumbsup:
Our fields are pretty much underwater at moment, so i'm snuggled up on the couch like Jabba the Hut and being fed toblerone pieces and jelly beans :clapping:

Take up the offer of a trip out the morrow and find some more of those Roman coins that will be laying there awaiting recovery :thumbsup:

I get the odd bottle via duty free whilst out travelling, so always take the opportunity. He got 3 bottles this time. A blue one, a Japanese one and an American one.... he txt me this evening to say the American one was delicious and now gone..... :D

Glad you managed another session, Andi :thumbsup: I didn't manage to get out before T4 was introduced and excess water stopped if before, but it really is good to see the finds of those that can get out :thumbsup:
