Four Monarchs, earliest coin a Penny 1861. 10xPennies, 4xHalfpennies, 2xSixpences, 1xThruppenny Bit.
I was planning a very early morning beach hunt today as I knew it was going to be a brill day weather wise but I forgot about a Docs appointment so had to change my plans at the last moment.
So I headed inland to my usual haunt and was not feeling very confident about finding much as I've hit this area many a time. Every time I arrive at this spot I always look at what looks like an old trackway leading off into the wilds. Being well overgrown with nasties I've always avoided trying it but today i had a go. Was hard going, not much area to swing but I kept at it for as long as I could until it got too dense.
A bit of a silver day as the Sixpence is a George V 1920, so containing 50% silver.
Also dug this quaint ornate handle, well, I think its a handle and a harmonica looking the worse for wear. Also some decimal coins that will go into my challenge fund - £1.07.
There's also a couple of photos of an axe-head I took with my phone. Was too big to fit in my finds pouch with the other trash, so I re-buried it where I can find it if it turns out to have some age to it. Certainly looks old, but not ancient. Anyone any ideas on it please. My pin-pointer is there for size comparison.
***UPDATE*** Just had an ID on the Axe Head, seems to be quite modern, known as a Kent Pattern Axe Head.
An enjoyable morning and worth a return visit, got to be something decent there somewhere.
