    Desperate times, desperate measures...

    We are trying any little patch we can right now. We spent 45 minutes covering a small weeded/thistles area (that should be bird cover) in the middle of a Barley crop. We have not done this field before but we will be targeting some nearby crop-marks that look to be Bronze Age/Iron age, once the crop is harvested.
    Our first impression after 40 minutes was its a waste of time, we had nothing (not even lead), just as we were moving off, I had to try the last little corner to finish it off. Call it instinct or just hating to leave any land uncovered, I surprised both of us with a hammered, not any hammered but a Sixpence

    Its a 1607 James I Sixpence - the best example of the 3 I now have (1604 & 1624 are the others)

    Spent another 1 hour in 2 nearby grass fields which have recently been hayed. Had a few bits:
    Horse brass with letters
    1955 Sixpence
    1670s Farthing
    etc...

    Proves why even the most remote & unpromising land is worth a bash, unless your Shaun7 & then its best to stay at home

    Great find Crusader!!

    I also found a 1607 sixpence as part of the 2 scattered caches I found 3 years ago here in SE Virginia. It may be my all-time favorite coin due to the significance of the date. Since I live within a stone's throw of Jamestown, finding a coin dated 1607 is about as cool as it gets. Look forward to seeing more hammered silver from you. HH ..... Bill

    some of your crusty coppers sell for 10 times what that coin is worth, so it maybe a good deal for me
