That’s a lovely one. Many of us find ridge and furrow a bit lacking in good finds but you’ve just proved that one wrong! Very nice.

Very nice, Paint. Do like an Elizabeth tanner, which was my first hammered but I've not had one since. They seem to be quite common as people's first, too - well, more common than you'd think.

I detect some R&F land with no joy whatsoever. I might need to pay it another visit now. Well done :thumbsup:
