Managed to get out last Sunday and this Sunday and got these. William III Silver Sixpence 1697 and what I think could be a Cannon Ball weighing in at just under 1lb and with a Diameter of just under 2 inches. What sort of date I don't know. Thank you for looking.

Very nice coin wittsy. Wouldnít mind that in my collection.
The cannon ball is ringing bells but Iím afraid thereís no tune coming to mind.
I seem to remember there was a name for the small cannon but grey matter not as good as it used to be,
Bet it gave a good signal though.

Great finds - the William was minted in Exeter.

Sounds about right Chris. According to Wiki the barrel was 4 ft long and it had a calibra of 2 inches.
Well found Steve, not many of them come up.  Grin

Knew Iíd heard something along those lines. Great.

Thanks all for your comments, some nice and interesting feedback.

Yes it was a belter of a signal Val and was a good 12" down. Mind with the ground still quite hard, I felt like I had dug 12 foot.
