IMPORTANT

Before creating an ID request please note you must:
1. include at least 2 photos of the item, both sides of a coin, or two angles of other items.
2. Include a ruler or other form of scale that clearly displays the scale in cm or inches. A coin or written dimensions is not acceptable.

Further information will also help, full guidance is below:
H - Have at least two good sized clear photos.
A - About your detecting day, type of land, depth found.
M - Measure items by doing the pics next to a scale or ruler.
M - Machine used and settings are interesting to other users.
Y - You will always get a better ID if you supply more information.

I'm pretty sure this is an Edward Farthing but any more help for ID would be great.
It was my last hole and was just resigning myself to a 'blanked' hours session.
Found with the nox 6 inches deep in field one set up on the searchers programme.
Thanks
