Val sent over her hunting angel and she guided me over this !   Does anyone know what it is, we also found lots of 1940's pennies - so a fab day, and of course, on a site that "has been done !" lol so pretty sweet really  lol





Still smiling and holding it in my hand !

Very well done Heather, not the commonest of coins around and yours is in fantastic condition. You've set yourself quite a high benchmark with that one. Keep it up

ohh I know, Im beaming !   thank you so much for identifying it for me Smiley and thanks for liking it as much as I do,  I shall have a good look now and find the right type.

It gave a rubbish sound too, and my son said, dig it as I was hesitating,  and I did, rather roughly because I thought it was another horseshoe, and this popped out.  Felt so bad then - could have cut it in half !  lol.   

Brilliant day, absolutely brill.   Smiley

Hi heather

please forward the findspot and the pictures to your local FLO [finds liaison officer] for the PAS [portable antiquities scheme].

it's important that all finds over 300 years old are recorded on the national database.

if you are not sure who your FLO is, go to www.finds.org.uk and look it up.
