    New Land - Barley Stubble...

    Spent 3 hrs & 45 Mins on some new land. It was once a late Victorian allotments & is covered in trash, so we picked through it as best we can:

    Brass Eagle Mount
    Barrel Tap Key
    2 Roman Coins
    2 Livery Buttons
    2 Military Buttons - 12th Queens Royal Lancers
    Shoe Buckle
    Silver watch back
    1879 Sixpence

    The 2 Livery Buttons came out nice. The military ones had been burnt, which is common on allotments.

    Thanks, the silver was in better than average condition.

    I'm always surprised at the number of thimbles you guys find over there. Any ideas on why people lost so many of them?

    Yeap, Most of them were lost when the families gathered the staw off the fields. It would protect their fingers from any stray straw stabbing between their nails. If you have had it happen you know how painful it is, & infections in those days could be deadly.

    I'm a zookeeper, I know all about hay and straw slivers... That's an interesting way to protect the hands. I would have thought that leather gloves would be more economical. Still, that's great for us! Too bad they didn't also wear large loose fitting gold rings and bracelets to protect the hands while working...

    some worn wool gloves over the thimbles, but it didn't stop them losing a few. You think the poor could afford leather

    Awesome finds Cru, What does a six pence equal out to in American money?

    Difficult to answer, as it's a pre-decimal currency (redundant).
    There was 12 pence to a Shilling (the Shilling became a new 5p), so a Sixpence is half a Shilling (ie 2.5 new pence)
    2.5 pence converted to USD is about 4 cent.
