I decided that I’d visit an old stomping ground in Gloucestershire that I’ve not searched since last year. The pasture fields were lovely and short - the sheep had done a fantastic job grazing and the linseed fields were still stubble. The ground was perfect, damp but not too wet to be sticky. The weather was great, sunny but not too hot.
I’d searched these fields for the past 3 years and always manage to pull up a handful of coins from the pasture, so much so, I’ve named it my Mojo field as it reinstalls any lost confidence. It’s always a good day going home with some coinage. :P
I was using the Tinner program as recommended by OG to see if it could pull up anything more.
It didn’t disappoint. A hand full of coins - a cartwheel penny, a G3 half penny, thrupenny bit, penny and 2 kinds of half-penny.

The usual lead bits and pieces - inc 3 lead shots.

Some other items - stair rod clip, buttons, and nice bit of pottery.

A lovely little buckle with the pin intact.

A curious copper alloy item with a ‘button’ / badge with a prancing horse and the words King of the Road. I think this is off a vintage Lucas car horn.

And then this lead star with a loose lead centre piece. It could well be a sunflower. Not sure what this is. It’s broken and looks like it’s either a pendant or a horse decoration? Any ideas welcome.

All in all, it was an enjoyable 4 hours out, chatting to the local dog walkers and the Tinner program came up trumps. :thumbsup:

You tried the Tinner programme? :Party: did you get more depth? I know it has reactivity that means it should be shallower but somehow it isn’t in my experience. The targets just ping. As you’d expect the tiny finds aren’t quite as obvious but you can’t have everything I guess.

Love the star. No idea what it was for but it’s lovely :thumbsup:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

I’m a free spirit when it comes to detecting.... I just wander around aimlessly, get a gut feeling something good is in another direction and off I go. :roll:
That way I don’t get bored of a field :D

I’d say I’m getting more depth with it over the normal hot program. I have purposely slowed down my swing speed to match the reactivity. I pulled the QE2 1/2 penny out of a 9” - 10” hole and it returned a lovely tone. It must have been flat, but still good. It certainly likes lead, always a booming signal.
