    Our Best Short-Cross Hammered...

    Cru'dad holds the record for the best looking short-cross (one of my fav series of coins).

    I will always remember the day he showed me it whilst detecting 2 lengths behind on my right side, I'm slightly quickier & take the leading edge whilst gridding, so as to double back & complete Dads run. (Well oiled team, covering land at a good pace.)

    Although its GPSed, I need no help in going back to the same spot in the middle of a large field, I have many mental maps of our better finds Dad just does the job of putting it onto paper.
