    My latest finds, INCLUDING A SHAVED SILVER - by hodge

    On a very cold morning, during which we were limited to about 3 hours detecting due to the temperature & biting wind.
    Only managed 5 coin finds, and several buckles etc. I'm pleased to say that I managed to get my first halfcrown of the year, a George V dated 1929. So at least I achieved something for the morning! The other coins were Pennies of Victoria (date worn off!), Edward VII 1907, George V 1914 and a Halfpenny of George III 1806...
    Unfortunatly I managed to 'shave' George V on the halfcrown, at the time I thought 'bugger', (or something very similar)... But its a halfcrown for the year anyway!!

    As I replied on my post, a halfcrown is a rare find in the fields. I've had 88 hammered this year but only 1 halfcrown that I can remember.

    I think George is bleeding.....and crying. But, he's happy to see the light of day, after all these years in the deep.
    Good hunt. Nice to find a "rare" found coin. I get some like that, too. Very common, looking at the price book. But, don't
    see many of them popping out of the ground.
    Can't find it if you're watching tv at home, your machine isn't on, and the head of your detector is pointed up!!
