Earlier today Cru'dad went around to the farmer who owned the field where we recently got the Treasure item (Roman Silver Pin) to inform him about it. Whilst there he found out that the Field of 500 was now drilled with oilseed rape & so he asked what was left. The Bag Seal City Field was available but we had covered all the Roman Site, so he decided to do outside of the site for just a quick hour. He got 2 hammered (from an area we had never had any), so when he phoned me about it, we decided to hunt the last 2 hours of light & ended up with:

3 Scrappies
Great Northern Railway Button
17th C Button
Tudor Button
17th C Spur Buckle
Jetton
Tudor Knife Terminal
1889 Chester Silver Thimble
4 Hammered:
Nice Penny of Ed I (laying on top), & 1 grotty one
Lizzy I Halfgroat
Edward III? Penny

Dug tons of junk, but pretty pleased with a strong hammered finish for Aug.
I think this area was a late Victorian allotments that continued into the 20th C.

The four hammered coins with the thimble in the center makes for great finds-photo. Congrats on the excellent quick hunt.

Crusader I don’t normally respond to your posts because I just don’t know what to say. Your finds leave my mind spinning. You and Cru’dad are killing it with all those beautiful hammered silvers. You both work hard and dig tons of stuff and come up with things that we would never imagine finding on this side of the pond. Congratulations on your many terrific hunts and finds. Your experience and knowledge are a true asset Tresaurenet and an inspiration to the rest of us. Stay safe, continued good luck and keep swingin.

Thanks for the kind words.
Whilst getting into the car last night, a dog walker asked how we got on. She was utterly amazing at what we found & thought we must have had a red letter day. We stated, not really.
We are at a privileged point in our careers where this seems normal.
However, we still have moments remembering where we came from & how abnormal it really is. Makes us chuckle.
