Hello all, managed another short trip out this afternoon, only about an hour and a half today before the heavens opened and I ran for cover .

Couple of lead tokens, bridle boss and buckle, a cut half thats seen better days and a reasonable half groat that I think is Edward IV, quatrofoils by neck, Spink 2029, a bit double struck, Tony, if you could confirm or deny that it would be great :thumbsup:

So, not been a bad week, heres to the next :thumbsup:

Really noisy field Cath, silencer to 2, 54 khz and the signals were singing out, was getting a fair depth too considering all the contamination and mineralization :thumbsup:

I need to wack up my frequency next time I go out. I have a field with some well rotted and flattened maize that needs a proper bit of detecting so I’ll give those settings a go :thumbsup: Thanks Phil.
