Excuse me, but can we get a sense of perspective here? A fortnight without a silver is a famine?

Hold on. :Thinking: On second thoughts, for Ian it probably is :lol:

If ever you want a break from finding ‘stuff’ just give me a shout and I’ll take you to a couple of my ‘best fields’.
Famine ! Try 3 hammered in 12 years ! :pulling hair out:

Mind you I have found gold as well :lol:

That is a cracking coin though. Well found. :thumbsup:
