Last artefact I found was a spindle whorl, 1st artefact yesterday and another one lol think the hammered gods have deserted me, though this Charles II copper farthing 1673 is a tad toasted, it was covered in a thick layer of crud, and nearly ended up in the bin but persevered and was surprised to see it was Charles II, a 1st for me, iv had worse days lol

Your 1673 Farthing is not so bad. At least you have been able to make out the date and the obverse is pretty good with his portrait, some nicely raised lettering. Would be pleased to find that.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

The coin doesn't look bad at all considering it's age, the spindle whorl is a nice find too.

I thought when i 1st found it, it might be a George I Farthing as i could just see the Britannia figure on the reverse, I spent the best part of last night trying to get the crud off, and yeah was quite chuffed with it, always nice to find something different :thumbsup:

either :lol: Aye i use to call them Billox [forum username] whorls after a mate who couldnt find one for the life of him, in the club i used to be in whenever anybody found one they,d shout Billox Whorl, and he would curse away, when he finally found one, you would think he,d found the crown jewels :lol: :lol:
When i dug that one yesterday, I muttered im going to start calling them Figgis whorls :lol: :lol:

Nothing meagre about that spindle whorl! I’d be delighted with that find!
