Out on a grass field that had been cultivated with heavy discs in preparation for a wheat crop later With the recent rain digging conditions were ideal and I found a mixture of items amongst them were a battered Victorian sixpence a Jaguar E-type toy car and a crude lead weight
The icing on the cake however was a Henry 111 voided sort cross penny Class 7a London mint moneyer RAVLF
Pleased with that, made my day

Nice array of signals there for the day :thumbsup:

Is that button or cufflink silver? Its an old 18th century navy one I think. Need a close up to be sure :D
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Good day out by the look of it :thumbsup:

Henry Coins always make me smile. The portraits always look very surprised. That one is a bit different, he reminds me of one of my dogs, a Schnauzer :D think it’s the snowball hair and whiskers, not to mention the big eyes.

Great find. Mine’s still on the waiting list :D
