    New Land - Winter Wheat Stubble - Day 5...

    As we pulled up to the field we noticed the lovely flat stubble had been disced up to an uneven mess. We tried to carry on where we had left off, but the conditions were far from perfect, so we tried the edge of the field that the farmer had not ploughed up yet. The weather was rainy with the odd thunder clouds just missing us.
    My hammered Penny of Edward III, saved the day because after 4.5 hours we only had:

    2 Medieval Buckle Plates - 1 nice one with a backwards looking beast (my first I think)
    Piece of a Medieval Swivel
    Poor Jetton
    17th C Buckle
    Buttons
    Plus a circa 18th C Seal Fob (ladies head)

    UPDATE:

    Having done a bit of research, I think the date range of the Seal is 1775-1830.
