Coins have become quite scarce on the pasture though surprisingly about half a dozen showed up last outing. A new one for me was an 1860's Italian 10 Centesimi, though it no doubt traded as a penny here. https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces726.html
Also a George III half crown forgery.

There were the usual bits of jewellery and lead toys which are always nice to find. The quite chunky bullet dates to about 1860 and is a .577 which was fired by a musket rifle.

A nice selection of goodies, had one those bullets today too, interesting to see how they evolve over time.
A garter buckle top right second picture I think

I've found one of those big muzzle loader bullets too, really wouldn't have wanted to be on the wrong end of one, big old lump of lead.
