    Bag Seal City - Day 3 - 67 Bronze, No Silver...

    After yesterdays amazing hunt this field deserved a name other than Cru'dads field code. So today I named it Bag Seal City, if you need to ask....
    After yesterday my hopes were high but we both knew we had probably blown it for silver for awhile, but I still hoped for just 1 today, which never happened even after 6 hours 15 minutes gridding (13 man hours). Not complaining, as we still have some way to go.

    67 Roman Bronze Coins
    Tudor Button
    Livery Button
    1920s Senior Officers Great Western Railway Button (a first)
    34 Bag Seals!
    WWI New Zealand Engineers Shoulder Title (a first)
    Broken Roman Fibula
    Rose Farthing
    Jetton
    Bits...

    With all the junk we dug a lot of holes today, I can sure feel it, for a change!

    Some kind of manure, from the mid 20th C.

    Holy C-c-c-c-ats man! I ain’t never been to England but I feel as if I have been now! For a guy in the US upper Midwest where 1850 is about as old as it gets, those pics are like something I’d seen in my high school history books! I know it’s old hat to you guys and there’s “better” to be found, but there’s a lot of “wow factor” right there. Absolutely fantastic volume and detail, I cannot imagine digging ANY of that, and likely never will. Props on digging that many holes, that in itself probably would’ve killed me. What a stellar hunt!!

    I believe it to be a mis-IDed pilgrims badge of the Knights of the Holy Sepulchre. I've seen these attached to a late 19th C magic box, but I think they pinned them on other items as well.
