Got a busy end to the week but if I find anything nice this weekend I really will be worried I’ve signed a pact with the devil in my sleep...

Morning All,
I found this a couple of days ago... sorry for lack of scale it’s the size of a modern 10p give or take... any Queen Mary was a first for me so really pleased!

I was fortunate enough to have the cameras out for both that and a Charles II guinea I found the day before and put a video up in case anyone is interested!





All the Best
Alexander

What a great few finds on a field you said didnt really produce very much in the past :shock:
It just goes to show that you should never discount a field just because its been quiet in the past :thumbsup:

Lovely Gold coin, and i have to say i enjoyed your calm demeanor when you found it.....refreshing to see

Your video also showed your swing style, and i have to say it looks good from the ground angle
Your coil stays low to the ground and flat, although i did notice that 'sometimes' on your extreme right part of the swing, you tend to raise the coil slightly
But a good example of a decent swing style :thumbsup:
I walk very slowly when detecting and often over lap my swings, but thats just my ocd i expect :lol:

Great finds, great video and thanks for sharing :clapping:

Great finds this week, love the Mary groat, what great condition. I found one a couple of years ago but was very smooth , I could only just get an I'd from the legend, yours is a belter.
Well found and well saved.
Love the videos, keep putting them out.
:thumbsup: :clapping:

Just watched your video.
The Queen Mary and the other hammered actually look better than in the photos, really good condition.
Finding the Gold coin would elicit a near permanent grin and no doubt a glow of Ready Brek advert proportions but have always thought the Gold Dance thing to be an over the top Americanism.
Buckles always interested to see as i normally find, bits of items.
Not a dog person but your puppy is very nice , enjoyed him digging in your excavations.
Perhaps many years ago, Golden Retreivers were named because they did find the odd yellow coin.
Well done on your superb finds, Alex.
Cheers, :thumbsup:
Dave.

Thanks BA, much appreciated!
And I totally accept your comments re the swing! I didn't know I lifted to my extreme right until I watched myself and in fact it also shows me that I swing a little too far that way in any case! ( Not sure that came out right but you know what I mean!). So, two things to work on!!
It also shows how useful filming oneself can be to show you these things - especially skiing.... terrible habits we don't know we are doing can easily be picked out from video and i'm sure the same goes for golf, shooting, fishing, tennis - whatever it may be.

So get filming yourselves - you may not look quite as fluent as you think you do!!
Thanks again and thanks to all you mod colleagues for letting me post them - much appreciated!

(P.s I also know I go a bit fast but that's just me style... once I have been on the same patch a few times I slow it all down!

Thanks Reiver, I'd never found one before and was always a bit envious when I saw others finding them so it was a bit special - thanks for the thumbs re the vids!
