So after a busy couple of weekends today we at last went detecting!!

Spent the morning in the “quiet” field and found a hammered and another silver coin(?) so was super happy with that. After lunch i decided to go to his field where he has found countless Romans, just to annoy him! Found a few bits so decided to head back to the truck as it started raining.. and the wind was hitting 40mph 😬…. when bang a super crisp 72 sounded in my ears.. dug nd saw the gleam of gold.. automatically assumed button.. but oh my days.. there sat a gorgeous little GOLD STATER needless to say Himself was furious that I had found it in his field… but I did get a hug and grudgingly he said “well done” 😂😂😂 ….! I havent found the same one online yet..… but wanted to show you all!!



We also found a gorgeous fibula, a dress hook, half a spur, a patterned piece, this weird lumpy bit, second pic to show you the top, little bits, chunky lead weight, tiny buckle and bit, spoon handle and modern bit, small shot, clog strap and strange lead bit, a silver tab (did the tin foil test) buttons galore, a hammered, and finally a silver disk 🤔(again passed the tin foil test) xx

What a truely awesome day we have had.. and so pleased to be able to add a gold to my already unbelievable stats this year 😎 xx

Oh my my!
My heartiest congratulations on the gold! And the silver. And the relics... Oh and the buttons.

Gold then? Must be something unusual going on for it to have just popped up. Ah yes , here it is..
You're going to create a major ruckus as word gets out!

Thanks RC …xx now The real question is… do I stop mentioning my Philip and Mary shilling every time I see him… and replace with the gold coin story…🤔 I’m undecided…😂 xx

Well thank you for putting himself in place.🤣
( A hug?) Banner!🫠

Seriously though congratulations on your first gold.

Have looked at so many ponies on the sites, had to go clean me boots.
Certainly didn't find an example that would mirror your AWESOME STRIKE!.
What a wonderful day for you, brings a tear of joy sent your way.

Well done on the Fibula, and silvers, dress hook.....
All of them would be a good day.
The Pony made it a memorable day, that will last you for many.
Those memories never will get old.
Ahh thanks Peps xx 🤗

no it is proving hard to ID…. But the little bird on it is definitely a pigeon 😉 xx

I no it kinda over shadows what normally would be an awesome bunch of finds… ! But I guess things want to be found when they choose! xx
