Re: Metal Detecting (Including Finds).
I had a little time out today as the sun paid us a rare visit,the lambs were out springing around all over the place and the birds were singing.
I wasn't expecting anything special in this undisclosed location but I came across a strong but very faint signal, very much like a deep piece of scrap iron,after a few hums and a few hars whilst plundering wether or not is was worth putting in the effort I began to dig.
After digging a 6" deep hole and then scraping around with my trowel for 5mins, I saw the distinct glint of silver in the bright sun,It turned out to be a lovely Georgey shilling (very strange signal).
The finds of note are:-
1 1920 silver shilling
1 broken snake buckle
1 ornate button and few predecimal coins (and a ring pull).
