Managed another outing to my permission down in Pembrokeshire yesterday, had a lovely day out in the fields finding a rather nice copper medallion made from copper from HMS Victory for the centenary of the battle of Trafalgar 1805. made in 1905 and marked ER V11 for Edward 7th. A couple of Georgian coins a Victorian penny, spindle whorl, lead shot, buckles and bling.

Lovely medallion, and I wonder how much of the copper from the Victory is actually included? Cracking find, whatever :thumbsup:
