Henry III 3c long-cross penny, Nicole - London, a casket key and stuff

Post by Oxgirl36 » Sun Jun 16, 2019 7:12 pm

Today I was granted 2.5 hours under pain of divorce if I was late. With driving and set up time that gave me less than 2 hours x;

Rather than arguing or moaning I just went to the field. Took up where I left of. First hole was a nice 1550-1650 vessica shaped buckle. I was delighted with that after commenting this morning that I was surprised I hadn’t-found more artefacts on this field.

Second hole was lead.

The third another beautiful disc of silver. It was a git to find because it was next to iron and a full pin pointer depth down. The one thing I’ll say about this X35 coil, it really does go much deeper than the black one did on this type of target. Anyway I thought initially it was a shortcross it’s not. A Henry III I assume?

Anyway after dancing and thanking, I got another little buckle followed by a musket ball.

Me and the field had a conversation about some nice pottery-shards I’d just been admiring (yes I’m mad - it’s what being a moderator on here does to you x; ) when between the iron I heard the hint of a something. I dug, I searched and I was about to give up when I saw a hint of green . A key. Boom! It’s a 1500-1650 casket one I believe. Another item off my wish list OooO

The field then gave me one last thing - a georgian/ victorian thimble. Conveniently squashed to make photographing it simple =)) My first decorated one :;@

Thank you ladies and gents for your kind words. If it keeps raining for a couple more days it’ll be perfect for another few trips. Sorry in advance to anyone who this field is annoying though. Just 2 more trips and it’ll be done - this section of it anyway ::g

"under pain of divorce", I'd have taken that, sounds like a fair deal to have spent longer on that permission :D

Some great finds, the key and thimble are really nice ::g

Hats off to you for ‘going for it’. Can understand it though. If you’ve hit a productive patch, the promise of a nice find or two cannot be ignored :D Well done again, some really good finds.

Did you get the dinner on time though ? :))
