I got this yesterday, really nice condition and without doubt my best coin find so far.
A nice 1816 George III tanner

It's funny, I found 4 coins but you should see the state of the other 3, all from the 1970's.  This one fell out of the sod as I turned it and I didn't even need my pointer to locate.   Made a lovely pinging sound on my Garret.

That's a cracker! I dug one up a few months ago and thought it was a pretty good example but that is much cleaner.

The detail on the belt buckle (or what ever it is) at about 7 o'clock on the reverse is much clearer than on mine.

Excellent find - and a good one is worth a few bob too I recall from my basic research.
