The heifers have just come off the park,so the grass was nice and short.
Despite the flies,heat and pollen I managed about 4 hours mainly on the vacuous prog.
The Lizzie came out right at the death about 6foot from the car,I believe the spur is post med or possibly earlier with a rusted rowel and fittings.
The bottom coin is,as far as I can see a snide George 3rd shilling,I think I’ve got a real one to compare attachment=0]915DC349-807B-428D-B07F-0E67D2AB59FB.jpeg[/attachment]

Nice buckle there, but my goodness you are a brave guy in this heat :shock:
I spent a few minutes in the garden and gave that up as a bad job :lol:

Fortunately she has a good sense of humour,which is very lucky for me,
I cheated a bit as most of the finds were in the shade of the trees of which they’re quite a few.
I’m guessing the buckle is mid to late 17th c

Nice finds. The spur and the spur buckle are both civil war period and great finds. Nice to see a spur with the decorations still attached. Looks like that’ll be an interesting field :thumbsup:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

I'd be happy with that little lot :thumbsup:
