Yesterday I got to travel to a newish permission, nearly froze me bits off and found very little. The highlight was an open work belt mount, which I think is rather cute.

So today I went back to my favourite farm and decided to get back on the maize stubble field. Trouble is I have to go through a pasture field first and got rather distracted :Party: This field is hit and miss. Some days it gives you naff all and others it decides to be generous. Thankfully it was in a good mood today.

Second hole was a beehive thimble. Not the best nick but it made me smile anyway

Then it proceeded to offer up two nice buckles. It wasn’t till I cleaned them up I realised one had black enamel and the other has line decoration. I rather like them! Both were way deeper than pinpointer depth too. Here’s the decirated one (enamelled one in other photo below)

Then a nice repeatable deep sounding signal and 8” down out popped a William III love token sixpence, followed by the next hole, 20 feet away, my first ever silver button! Bit shiny cause I cleaned it :D

As I managed to drag myself into the stubble field I heard a booming signal and a couple of inches down I got what I thought was yet another piece of a skillet or similar. On cleaning up it looks like it’s decorated with a hound or something. Or am I imagining it? In the hand it really looks like it’s decoration anyway. Thoughts?

A bit of a pot leg, a net lead weight, a couple of old bronze rings, loads of buttons, bits of bronze things rounded the day off well. I enjoyed that and, for once, not a bag full of musket balls!

A reasonable return there, I've not had a decent buckle in ages. :thumbsup:

A session of finds well worth finding anyway Cath. I`ve not been able to go detecting the last week due to me having lots of work on my front Garden to do, putting a new Flower bed in along the newly erected fence ,then finishing off with a length of edging stones, in which I came to grief yesterday when I had bought three further lengths of edging stones ready to finish the job , I went out again to buy some flowers for the new flower bed, came home and I got out of the car went around to the passenger side to retrieve thee trays of Pansy Flowers and as I went to walk away I tripped over the edging stones already down on this side of the path and went down like a felled Tree. 3 trays of flowers went flying from my hands and when I fell I hit the "new" edging stones leaning on others already laid and cracked 2 of them in half. The ends of Three fingers cut up ,a knee and elbow badly grazed and I now feel like I`ve gone 10 rounds with Mike Tyson in the ring. :( :( :( :( So at least your Happy with what you did , and needless to say I`m not happy with what I did. :D

Gawd Bors :shock: Bet you are still feeling pretty sore. See all this gardening lark is dangerous and a waste of time. It never ends cause the darn things keep growing, it’s expensive and garden accidents are commonplace. Buy a flat with no personal garden space, or hire a concrete truck for a permanent solution ;)

Seriously hope you are OK :Luv Ya:

Awe no Cath I really like Gardening (when its organised & Tidy) It`s just this new Fence was put up so it had to be put right and finished off with a new edging otherwise the soil added in would have run over onto the path,so yeah it`s had to to be done right . I find a Gardens easy to manage when of course its done in a manageable way . If its just left as a mish mash then it can be hard work maintaining it but I`d call my Garden, " easily manageable ". :D But of course it can come at a cost ,if you trip over in it and bash yourself up ! :lol:

Not a bad session, Cath.
Can also see the Hound.
Nice Silver button.
What was the date on the George V Penny ? You know how i like detail.
Wrap yourself up next week, overnight freezings, with very low daytime temps. Avoiding the low temps, was the only good point about missing 3 months of detecting.
Good luck on your next detecting sessions,
Dave :Luv Ya:
