    Sorry for the late response, I was going to answer this & got distracted.

    The counter-stamping of coins which is an unoffical mark as appposed to a counter-mark that is offical has many known reason, and a few unknown as well.
    The common known reason's are advertising of their business.
    Silver-smith's would put on their mark to show that a blank coin (no longer recognisable to the public as a coin) was in fact made of silver, which implies it still had trade value.
    Homemade counter-stamps done for 'fun' or unknown reasons.
    Unknown marks with no obivious reason.

The problem was that it was full of weeds that got to waist height, but now they have ploughed some of the field ready for spring drilling.
    It's about a 7 inch turn & has yet to be disced down, but it's good enough for now.

    Last year we had a couple of slow days, low yield finds, but your right it's hard to remember a 'bad outing'.
