Finds from Maddiston - 14th April 2019
« on: April 15, 2019, 11:00:05 AM »
Enjoyed yesterday's dig - thanks for organising.

Along with a few Victorian and Georgian milled copper coins I had a few interesting finds, but nothing too old:
  • George II copper Irish halfpenny (dated 1747)
  • a lead pipe bowl, decorated
  • a Victorian toy cannon
  • a lead bag seal (with “3” marked on it)
  • a copper finger ring
  • a small sealed bottle from between 1916-1940


How did everyone else get on?

That's respectful day the cannon looks in great condition.

Well done on getting some decent finds and the cannon is great! Best I could manage was a Viccy halfpenny and an Edward Vll farthing but it was good to be back out detecting after a prolonged absence. I managed to get the car bogged down on the way out so thanks to the two guys who gave me a shove which was greatly appreciated.

Apart from the usual lead, buttons and other non-ferrous scrap etc managed just one coin - George lll farthing in poor condition but I enjoyed my day and the digging was very easy.  Thanks Grant.
