Had a enjoyable day lots of digging for me but not many great finds.  best being a wee bit of silver and a spindle whorl .couple of pics looking for any ID on the two lead tokens that were found by Bob Ferguson (crowncap).

Well done Brian, nice decorated spindle whorl. Bob's lead tokens look interesting.

A respectable haul again! Nicely dug. Can't quite scale them, but the lead tokens have a Baltic seal look about them. There are a couple of similar patterns here...

Enjoyed the dig although not any goodies came up for me. A Battered Farthing 1886 and an old Threepenny bit 1954, lots of little bits of lead and copper. Thankfully only one bit of round iron got the better of me and I dug it. But thems the breaks, and the signals.  Woo Hoo.

Had to give up at lunchtime 'cos of the cold! We found a funny wee hydraulic fluid tap (?), piece of a tinplate toy, heavy horse bridle decoration, 4-hole button, Dutch bag seal & a dress weight.
