Never a dull moment as there's enough wildlife there to keep anyone's eyes and ears busy.
I'm beginning to see the importance of the natural spring that sits in the corner of the crop field and the two brooks that run around three sides of the field.
I'm using a Minelab Xterra 50 with a Nel Tornado coil on discrimination 1 and the tone that came through my earphones was similar to a button (screen reading 9-12-15) and as I hadn't dug anything for a while. Out came the spade and fairly quickly a hole was dug (50-75mm depth.) The Carrot was out and I searched the hole and then the soil plug. It sounded off and my heart started to race as I still can't see the find so I begin to break the clod away and there's an edge, a grey/ charcoal coloured edge of a button, cufflink or a coin?
My eyes need to focus and my first thoughts were Lizzie I penny, as I've found them before on this permission. I look more closely and I see AROLVS as part of the legend. I started to smile and thought " you've never found one of his before" and out comes my phone- to take a few photos.

Cheers for posting that up.
What a tiny coin in a big ruddy field.
