its been a long while since I found one of these, spotted on newly lifted potatoes. Picked up an interesting Roman local issue bronze coin as well, but this is a belter of a perfect arrowhead!

Long day of searching but is very local to me so easy in that way.

That arrowhead is a beauty! I found one just before Christmas but one of the barbs were missing. Yours is perfect :thumbsup:

Blimey, that is perfect, Gorgeous thing. (PS.....did you get any spuds as well? I must admit I'd of had a bag for them just in case. :lol: )

That’s a lovely Bronze Age Sutton type.
Interesting that it looks like a low grade flint - is that typical of your area?

The arrow head is a great eyes only find.
Roman is good too.
Have to admit, would have filled my boots with spuds.
Curious now, do you live near the beach ?
Well done, :thumbsup:
Dave.

Some would say I was born in the sea! I'm very close to the drink.
