I'd love to find one of thems. Well done.

Looks like a porcupine sceat - will have a look through Spinks (though I'll have to blow the dust off the Saxon section) :lol:

Congrats on another ✔️ On your list. Bet it’ll clean up nicely.

One of those is on my list and likely to stay there forever now. None over this end and I don’t travel anymore.

Maybe a gold one next time :thumbsup:

Cor!
I’m in Hants near Winchester it’s a bit stormy! Managed an hour or two this morning but wouldn’t want to be in the middle of a field holding a conductive rod at the moment...!

As a temp measure if you balance your phone on a tea mug or similar it keeps it still and allows you to tap the screen to focus on the coin :thumbsup:
