Hammy time !!!
« on: April 30, 2016, 02:57:53 PM »
Well I decided to pop along to my own permission today and found half a silver coin ( possibly a William 3rd shilling ) then about 2 min's later I bagged a wee Hammy !!  ;D ;D bit more excitement for me than Paul when finding a hammy lol
Anyway not too much detail but after close inspection and research looks like it could well be a James 6th quarter thistle Merk 1601 worth 3 shillings and fourpence back in the day  ;D ;D

Paul what's the score now ?? lol  ;) ;)
