I was out this afternoon for an hour after I'd finished my household chores. I was on a field on my new permission that's literally 200m from my house, so it's easy to do these short forays. This field has recently given up a nice horse harness pendant and a Edward IV half groat, so has potential.
Today's search seemed be a buckle day as the first holes returned some nice buckles, then it was onto broken buckles. The session ended on silver though. A pair of pre-decimal sixpences and to finish a nice Elizabeth 1st. A few other items came up - a part of a decorated pewter spoon handle, a lead 'swirly' button, a corner bit of something and a decorated pressed copper alloy something.
I'll be on a local history society field meet tomorrow, so I won't be returning to this field until Monday evening now, or if can blag it, tomorrow evening.

It’s land that’s been arable for as long as I’ve known it. The farmer couldn’t get the crop in earlier this year so it sprayed off and the weeds had died back ( that was a few months ago now, so the weeds have come back with vengeance in the last few weeks)

Now that’s what I call a productive field. Some really nice finds of interest and, I’d say, lots more to come.

I admit to feeling a pang of jealousy. I’ve got a field of my own the other side of the garden fence. Even got a gate into it. Sadly all I’ve found is a few modern coins and lots of old car engine bits. Star find, 1 musket ball :lol:

Well, today started off on the club field meet where we searched a field for the local history society. All that came up for me was;
A button, 2 x toasted GII half pennies, 2 modern 2ps and a find of the session, a countersigned GIII penny- T. Saxton

I then decided enough was enough and headed back to this permission. I took one of the lads with me since he didn’t find much either.

The field didn’t let us down.
First Roman off these fields came up.
A George III silver sixpence 1816
A nice buckle ( didn’t expect anything else)
A strap end
A piece of a broken blade - I think this could be a section from a Bronze Age sword? I’ll post this in the finds ID section.

And then to top off the day, a lovely 1849 half sovereign.

It’s certainly the field that keeps giving.

Pete’s already asked when we can go back on, he’s that keen :thumbsup:
