We managed to fit in a quick swing tonight, after yesterday’s rain the field was perfect for digging! I Went off into a corner of a field and it was button central! Then this little beauty popped out 😍

As the light started to fade we headed back to the car… and I got the best signal of the night and this beautiful button emerged! Haven’t managed to find a similar image … yet. Any help with I’d as ever so much appreciated xx
Assorted bits, one that looks like a lead mould ? and other random bits! Xx

Believe it or not this period & denomination of coin is harder to find than Hammered & they are normally in very worn condition. So congrats on that one & a Livery Button with most of it's plating.

Well done Blossom. Always enjoy looking at your finds. You have some awesome sites for metal detecting. Couple years back I found this William 111 copper half penny and I live 3500 miles {5700 km} away in Philadelphia area.
