Interesting finds Haggy. That half sovereign weight is unusual and I have never seen one before. Well done.

Nice few finds there Haggy. Never seen a weight like that before, there can't be many of them about. Maybe someone will swop you a half sov for it :)

Yup the sovereign was found about halfway up the left side, 30 or 40 feet from the trees.   8)

Some nice dark patches on your find area
On map apps  think the pics were taken last year as it looks like there's cropped grass on field
