Out on club dig today :thumbsup: and walked over another bucket lister I have had a lead one in the past but this is the first bronze one hopefully silver one day :D it looks to have a bird on it and any help with the text and age of this matrix would be good :thumbsup:
I also had some last hole luck today :thumbsup: before figgs says anything I’ve been overdosed with luck lately :thumbsup: found this part of a hammy and help of id on this one would be great :thumbsup:
Will post all my club dig finds later on separate post it was another great day :Party:

Well played, you have to walk over it to get it and you seem to have the sixth sense of where to wander ( unlike me at present lol)

Nice matrix :thumbsup:

Really? Can't say as I've noticed :lol:

Everybody stop what you're doing. No point in going detecting until Ian's finished his run and the luck's shared out again :D

Great finds and that seal looks remarkably crisp. Have you taken an impression with it?

Beautiful seal matrix. I think it’s a cockatrice - a type of dragon with the legend saying CREDE MICHI or "believe me"

Great finds Ian, well done fella
That seal is something special, and great work by Cath and others with the inscription :thumbsup:

Cool if it is a dragon one, that would be so high on my wish list it would have snow on top :clapping:
