One find can make a whole weekend, Ian, and that one would make anyone's :thumbsup: Never seen a silver token before.

Glad your streak continues, chap. The acorns are a nice garnish to the finds, by the way :thumbsup:

Acorns are big this year, aren’t they! The squirrels must be thinking their luck is in. They’ll be coming out in the spring as little fatties :lol:

Lovely token. Never had a sniff of a silver one yet, great find :thumbsup:
