So I managed a couple of hours out with Bob the log today, back to the pasture field, Nox and 11" coil, running Fred's Field 1 program, Sensitivity at 22, recovery at 4, and FE at 1.

My first "proper signal" resulted in a nice button with a Hawke on, this again will go to the Farmer.


This was just the start though, and I was soon digging some odd stuff from this field, buttons, musket balls, old iron nails, a buckle or two, and a round spoked thing.



Bob also managed a couple of buttons etc, but his star find, was this Hans Krauwinckel 2nd Nuremburg Jetton.

Nice bit of detail on the jetton too, ones i find are usually shot to bits as they are so thin

In another life I remember Littleboot putting up a post on one of them toy wheels and it turned out to be a Wheel of Taranis (Celtic). Of course, that's exceptional and pretty much all these wheels will be off a toy cart or somesuch, but I always look closely at them now :thumbsup:
