Re: Metal Detecting (Including Finds).

Possibly RE from the reign of George 5th (V between the GR). It should say Royal Engineers in a "scroll" at the base of the cap badge & the motto in the "belt" should read Honi soit qui mal y pense.

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 ring(maybe)
1 ornate button and few predecimal coins (and a ring pull).
