Had another visit to a local permission, and the same field that last week produced two silver sixpence one Victoria and one George 3rd.

The day produced a few interesting finds, possibly a small lead token and a rather nice broken buckle, along with the usual suspects.

But for me the star of the day came just before lunch, with a is it or isn't it moment in the clod.
Then a lovely little Queen Anne sixpence revealed herself ,dated 1707.
I think (but stand to be corrected) it is post union with Scotland 1707- 14 and Edinburgh mint.
I only have one other Queen Anne coin , a shilling which is very slick, so was pleased to see this one in such good nick.

Again this field which I was pushed into detecting because of lambing , has produced the goods.

That is a great find mate, Queen Anne just don't come up very often. I have only ever found one coin of Anne, a shilling which was very worn :thumbsup:

Well done, great detail on that Edinburgh Anne sixpence. :thumbsup:
The (pewter?) buckle would look good with a superglue repair.

Very nice! Never had an Anne either, a relatively rare beastie!
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Thanks Easy , I like the buckle too, something a bit different. I was thinking the same thing about a repair job.
Cheers,

Yes as most have already voiced the queen Anne coins are pretty scarce and those that do appear are mostly in fair or grotty condition . That one is outstanding considering its come out the ground. Congratulations ,a great find and I would not try to clean it more than it is now as you could decrease its value . . :thumbsup:

Thanks Bors,
That's as much of a clean as its going to get, not for the sake of value, as I never sell any finds, but because I don't want to overdo it.
Cheers :thumbsup:

Great Sixpence.
Do like the regional mint marks on milled Silver.
Can`t recall seeing an Edinburgh before.
Well done and also on your other finds.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

Thanks for that Steve ,
I must say I'm pleased with how crisp this one is. As I said initially, the only other one I have found was a shilling which is pretty smooth, ID was from partial legend and hair style. But this one is a different kettle of fish.
Cheers, :thumbsup:
