A quick story and help please securing a permission;)

Post by andy1973 » Mon Sep 09, 2019 7:29 pm

Please mods if in the wrong place please move I’ve put here because photos don’t match requirements for ID section

Well on the way home tonight I thought I’d risk taking a chance and asking a farm we drive past for permission.

Stressing out about driving up to a farm is always worrying for me, as I’m already encroaching on the land and their privacy. So with a brave cheerful smile I knock on the door.. whilst inside I’m bricking it lol.

Well I shouldn’t have because the gent that answered couldn’t have been nicer, and engaged in a hour long chat about the farm and the surrounding land, which I never mind because they know everything, even more than maps/lidar and historians 😆 to my amazement he ended up saying that he is happy for me to detect on his land. I’d just need to sort things with his son tomorrow ( stupidly I’d taken my go to folder that I keep in the car out, when it went for it’s MOT, no maps or agreement !!! DUH!!). He called his son out to have a chat, and after a mother half hour talking about coins he had found himself, I offered to ID the ones he didn’t know about...

Well he has a 1675 Lizzie three pence
A 1800’s imitation spade guinea gaming token
A Counter Token - Hans Schultes III Nuremberg
And a toasted Charles II farthing

Now this is where I need some help is there any when this could be identified:( really sorry no scale and photo isn’t great :(

This is one coin toasted one side but there is a slight pattern to the top of the coin in the top photo and in the bottom one I’m not sure if it’s a long cross?

Any help or a rough idea would be fantastic and help in a long way to please my new found permission.
Thank you guys and gals

Normally you’d get a stern look for no scale but I like the story and the trouble you took to write it so lets just ignore it eh ;) :D

Hope you get an ID ::g

Great result. I'm toying with the idea of trying to get a new permission - this has inspired me to pay a visit to the farm a.s.a.p. Thanks!
