Above is a Queen Victoria silver threepence dated 1867 in quite good condition. I love these milled silvers and always makes my day when I find one. It was only about 3 inches deep and gave a lovelly signal.
Now this one above I really like. Its a Guernsey 8 Doubles bronze coin dated 1868 in fantastic condition. The only cleaning I wanted to do to it was just lightly brush it with a soft toothbrush. Found that one at the bottom of a bank again not deep, about a couple of inches.
Now here on the right is a pic of another good find. Its a scouts copper ring with the dates 1857 - 1907 - 1957 on it and the letters B.P. on the top. The B.P. stands for Baden Powell, the founder of the scout movement. Very pleased with this find, it turned up on the very edge of a field close to a high hedge. A perfect place to pitch a tent for camping. This one came out at around 6-7 inches, but still gave a lovely signal.
Really enjoyed myself today and makes a nice change to put something decent up on my blog. Long may it continue :)
One field on this farm we call The Machinery Graveyard Field. Mainly because in a corner of this field there are a few old farm machines, all rusting away but a wonderful sight of days gone by. I took a few snaps of them with my phone camera for you to take a look at.
