Another warm sunny day with nice dry top to the newly drilled Spring Wheat. We are doing a good job at keeping all the 100's of birds off.
The day started slow with us trying down Fan's Site end & deciding that today was our last hunt, so that we can focus at the other end. (Before time runs out)
I did managed a Hammered of Richard II - Halfpenny. Therefore it wasn't wasted effort. We did about 2.5 hours gridding.
Other finds included a broken Lead Token, a tip of a Bronze Age Axe & bits...
OTWBTTC - Cru'dad got a scrappy on Fan's Site & I got one on the Metal Working Site.

After lunch we went down the far side on the big grid & rounded the day off to 5 hours detecting.
Pretty slow over there as well but we did manage 2 scrappies & 2 unusual hammered that we knew we hadn't had before (both Cru'dad's finds:hello2:):
Sterling Imitation Penny 1296 of Guy of Dampierre (Count of Flanders) read more here:
We knew we had an Irish coin because of the triangle centre but it didn't seem to fit the usual Ed I types. That's because its an;
Extremely Rare Edward III Irish Halfpenny 1339 (Dublin Mint)
This site gives some background about the first 2 known, 1 in the National Museum of Ireland, & the other in a Private sale:
The British Numismatic Society details the 3rd known:
I've found the only 2 Records on the PAS (3rd/4th known) & it's not quite as clear as Cru'dad's example:
Below is a rally find not validated(2011):

I've pictured it next to the 2003 book price.
What's the chances so close to Saint Patrick's Day!:headbang:
We will ask permission to get this Recorded, it might be the only GPSed example!
Making History again, this is why I enjoy this hobby so much.
I also found my smallest fossil find.

What a great find crudad....I am sure it has great value both numismatic and historical....so does he need to surrender it, as it surely needs proper recoding then can it be kept by him?

This is so great. HUGE Congrats ! You & "Cru'dad" always post your great finds along with great text & references to share with us all. Many thanks. The find of the 1339 Edward III Halfpenny is EXCEPTIONAL. Might be the finest example left in the world & GPSed to boot !!! Quite the rare & beautiful find. I'm voting Banner for the Halfpenny on its' own merit ! When I have the time later tonight, I will make a couple of thumbnail images that isolate the Edward III for isolated, enlarged viewing & some text of the find. CHEERS !!!

Record ID: HAMP-1A2EC5 - MEDIEVAL coin

Recording is voluntary, not the Law, that's why we are asking the Landowner's permission. If it were the Law we have a contract stating it will happen.
In this case it's important enough that they should let us.
It will then probably be entered in to the British Numismatic Journal.

Well found you two! That will keep you in fish and chips for a while! I'll be over in the Colchester area for a week starting on Saturday. I hope to find anything near as good. Cheers! :icon_thumright:
