Went to see one of my big landowners this week and have been given another few fields. All pasture and vacated by the normal equine residents so nice and short. Some is part of the parkland of a big house so I have high hopes for them. A quick session was very interesting.

Loads of toasted Georgian coins, a few buttons and, where I think there was a path a few nice bits. First a modern ish silver thimble that should straighten beautifully. Then out popped a hammered coin that looks like a clipped Lizzie sixpence. Loads of other bits and bobs before finding the cutest tiny little pewter/ tin alloy whistle. I doubt it’s older than 19th century but I don’t care. After a good clean out I tested it snd it still works :Party:

Lots of new land in the next few weeks so looking forward to pastures new - literally ;)

Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
