Finally managed to get back out on the fields this afternoon after a week of rain . It didnt quite go to plan and within a couple of hours I was back home as the weather took a turn for the worse . All togged up for winter but one leaky boot half hour later and an iced cold foot and coupled with a freezing biting wind that froze my fingertips beyond numb made the excursion more pain than pleasure .
The crop fields were far too wet to go walking on so it was the stubble field which by now was soft and springy which made swinging the coil easy enough but stupidly I had forgotten my hand warmers and that was the death knell for me despite having gloves .
I lasted for about an hour and a half but it got to a point where I was dreading having to delve my fingertips into ice cold wet mud so after much deliberation I called it a day .
All was not lost as I did manage a fair decent George 11 half penny which had some good detail but as per usual the date was unreadable .

The good thing about this field is the lack of silver foil and bits of can slaw but the decent signals are sparse and the field only comes to life once it has been ploughed but if you persevere you can get lucky as it does throw up some nice bits every now and again . Not for me today though and decided to write this one off .
My last signal was this interesting item and I have no idea what it is and I could well be wrong but it looks Georgian to me and this field does give up plenty of items from that era .

Me to! Defo spur arm.

The weather is viscous. Cold wind is horrible, even when it’s not raining so hats off to you Paul for managing an hour :thumbsup:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

What!! What about us poor buggers still out there working in the cold? I would swap every hour of it for detecting if I could!
We aren't all retired on this forum you know! Lol 😆

So that`s what George II looks like.
Normally a brief glimpse under the tap if i`m lucky, to see which George..
Spur arm is a good find.
Cheers,
Dave.
