Wanting to make use of the recent showers, and the still reasonably short grass, I decided to nip out for a couple of hours last evening.

Sadly the rain had not managed to penetrate down much below the turf, but the grass was definately looking better for it.

As to the session itself, nothing too exciting came up but in addition to the usual buttons and Viccy and George predecimals, I did get these two ..

Top one is an 1856 French Five Centime (sp?) and the bottom an Irish William and Mary half penny from 1693.

In the hand, the reverse on the William and Mary actually shows a surprising amount of detail for an old copper coin given the soils around here..

So all in all, a pleasant couple of hours with the Nox....

Nice to find a William and Mary and even better an Irish one.

Thanks for that...I have only found a few W&M, but they seem to be that bit thicker than the George's that follow...

Well done on getting out and scooping up some decent coinage :thumbsup:

Until we get a bit more rain I can't get on anywhere, but with heavy showers forecast for these here parts over the weekend maybe, just maybe, the pasture will provide an opportunity. Of course, there's always the tramlines but that drives me batty.

A couple of nice finds there Pete, well worth the effort. :thumbsup:

I haven't been out for a couple of weeks now and this weekend's forecast isn't looking too good. :thumbdown:

I suffer with hayfever which can be a pain in the rear and I've only just finished a course of antibiotics for an eye infection. Thinking about it, I reckon it was caused by me rubbing my eye too much, just irritation rather than an infection. :pulling hair out:

Sorry to hear that Andy..I don't suffer from hayfever myself, but I know it makes some people suffer miserably...

Hopefully the weather will break shortly and things will be a bit more bearable...

After the next week of forecast rain showers here I might give the pasture another go before it dries again.

I didn’t know the harp ones could be William and Mary ones :shock: I might re- examine a few of those that I found to double check the monarch :D

Great condition coins :thumbsup:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
