First visit to one of the 2 fields i have for over Winter.
New fields always exciting.
First couple of signals confirmed the stubble was easy to dig.
Decided to do my usual of detecting along a boundary, usual shotties etc.
Hearing a call from my Detecting friend who was further into the field, she had found a Georgian Halfpenny, within the first 5 minutes. Carrying on along the hedge another 20 minutes or so and another call, the Edward III Half Groat, that was posted on here yesterday and Id`d by Allectus.
Carried on to the end of my boundary, then went along the next one, to where the lane is, finally found a humble plain button.
On reaching corner of the field turned around and came back, found what i thought was a large button but looks to be the inside of a pocket watch or some sort of gauge, there is a very short hand on there.
Wondering back up to the start of the field, my friend has not been too far and her finds were at least interesting, 2 coins already mentioned, quite a few buttons, including a P&S Firmin, with a fair bit of Gilt still remaining, squashed thimble and a nice buckle approx 34mm x 22mm.

Finally another Georgian Halfpenny just before we left.
Not a bad session .
What did i find ? Think Paul Daniels used to say " Not a lot " !

Convincingly beaten, not that i mind, at least i`m participating
Still a very enjoyable outing.
Cheers everyone :thumbsup:

I'm with KB above - your perseverance will pay off but instead of hammered, I'm going nice little Roman :D :thumbsup:

I think Dave will have some gold soon. A nice buckle and the livery button is likely the 'Wood' family. :thumbsup:

That's the way it works.... find boring stuff, feel a bit dejected and it'll be gold - I predict jewellery - a nice pendant of some sort.... :thumbsup:

You need to look at what is going on here. Much though I would always applaud the lady who finds better things than a guy on the field I’d like to see the guy win sometimes too! Swap detectors for a day or something :Luv Ya:

Some good finds from your detecting buddy though :thumbsup:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Out of interest what detectors are you and your detecting partner using?

I1m using the Garrett 400i with Nel Tornado coil.
Detecting friend is using a Deus, although i don`t know which model.
Would also have to say, not in a financial position to change detectors.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

My first machine was the garret 250 with tornado coil . Great machine and found loads of stuff , mostly rubbish :lol: but it did find me my first hammered coin and then as time went on I found other good stuff . I do miss that machine and wish that I had kept it just for old times sake .
I have heard good things about the 400i , still a popular machine and a good one :thumbsup:
