It's dangerous to be right when those with a thimbleful of perceived authority are wrong.
lol. But WHY,Ric Savage DOES?

I'm curious about field hunting. Do you know the history on your field? Are there some fields out there that should be better than others? Could I walk into any field and expect to find some coins? I guess in North America, i wouldn't expect to be finding things in fields. Moreso in England and older countries. Any tips you can pass along I would appreciate.

That's awesome!! My husband is a farmer and occasionally finds items in old house-spots that they're working up for the first time. Recently, he's brought home a handful of clay marbles, a petrified button, some arrowheads and a medium-sized medicine bottle.
My advice would be to locate the landowner first. The person on the tractor may not be the one who's name is on the deed, so ask about that immediately. Most farmers in this area don't mind if you hit them up early - before bedding and floating and planting and such.
Word of the wise though: in my experience, I've found that if they're zero-grading the grid you'll be turned down immediately and even if you *do* look, you'll find next to nothing after they're done.

Nice handful of finds, congrats. Arty
Its a small world until you have to walk somewhere.

Finding three coins like that in my area would be a very good day!
