Afternoon all,
Had a bit of a result at the beginning of this week as I thought all my fields were basically out of bounds but discovered a strip which has just been drilled for wild flowers and it proved to be really productive; I have never found so many lead tokens in one spot in my life! The area is about 250 metres by 60/70 m. Does anyone have any theories of why so many lead tokens? I didn't even cover it particularly well but fortunately will be able to go back next week too.
A damaged hammered coin, cartwheel Penny, Luxembourg 10centimes 1860! A copper alloy buckle and a Crotal bell are the also rans! And a few more battered lead tokens, Victorian and Georgian pennies which I haven't included in the photograph.

Any help with the ID of the hammered coin would be much appreciated as would the age of the buckle which has its nice 'rolling' section to it too.
Many thanks in advance.
All the best
Alexander

Just in from work and need to hit the shower before I hit the books, but your hammered has the look of a Henry about it. H6? Deffo York mint, anyway.

Great set of finds there, chap :thumbsup:

Good grief you have some cracking finds from a small area, who knows what else is there to be found. :thumbsup:

That would be very exciting… I don’t think I’ve ever knowingly done an old trading site before…

Thanks Kath, I’ve only done it the once and rather quickly but hopefully will be able to get back to it this week and I’ll do it slightly more scientifically this time!
