...be rude not to go back on the field where I found the strap end, especially as it’s a pleasure to detect after the lovely farmer has rolled it so nice and flat.

First two hours zilch - excluding bronze blobs, tin foil and lead rubbish. Stopped to take a call and remembered I had meant to check the line of the public footpath that runs through the field on the English Places app cause I thought the original path might be slightly further over. Good move cause it had!

Everything changed! First out a 1721 (?) lead token, just like the one I’d found before on this field.

Got to the grass edge by the hedge and a feint but repeatable signal out popped an Edward (III?) round halfpenny- slightly clipped but otherwise a beauty.

Then a medieval D shaped buckle - 1250-1350 near where I found the strap end.

And finally a 1921 shilling.

Might have to do a few more passes over that footpath 8-)

Might have to stop and take more calls too, seems to have worked :ugeek:
Might try then when i go out :thumbsup:

Those finds certainly made up for the shotties and bullets and lead blobs.. :clapping:

Back in with a hammered coin too, nice one
Hope you bowed graciously to the field as you left, and thanked the worms for being custodians for so long of the silver

Here you go...

What does it offer? It immediately opens in your current location (if location services are enabled of course!) and shows an old map of your location. There’s a slider on the right that lets you transition to a hybrid old map/ modern satellite image and, if you keep going, to full satellite. It also gives a brief summary of the history of the nearest location.

Full info here

That was a good session you had there, Cath
The Goat on the token reminds me of some Satanic cult.
As you know i `m not into Hammereds but that is a rather nice example.
Buckle is great.
Would have been happy just to find the 1921 Shilling.
Cheers, :thumbsup:
Dave.
