Found a couple of these yesterday around copper waste and buttons. Musket balls and horse harness buckles in the same field were not affected. The ground is wet pasture. I have seen the same on the headlands (modern coins and older shotties) but not on the cultivated parts of the same farm. In a non-scientific appraisal it does seem to depend on the ground and the nature of the object which means loads of variables.
