Nice set of finds there!

I had to leave around 12 as I had run out of energy but managed to find the following:



The coin is a VERY worn copper but you can just about make out a face.  It is 28.4mm in diameter, 1.8/1.9mm thick and weighs 7.38g.  Have been digging around on the net and the only copper coins I can find with that diameter are George II/George III halfpennies.  Given the state of the coin it is pretty worthless so will try and clean it up a bit to see if I can tease out any details.  Any recommendations for an approach to that?
I nearly walked past the coin as it responded like yet another coke can but glad I decided to dig it up.



The iron object is intriguing, the right hand end shows evidence of being broken a long time ago.  ANy ideas what it might be?  I wondered if it might be the point of a plow but open to suggestions.  The leading edge is not vertical but slightly sloped like the prow of a ship.



The third object is a lump of lead - very nice signal.

Coin and lead from south edge of southern field.  The iron object from west end of southern field.  Northern field seemed pretty barren to me but I didn't cover a lot of it.

Apologies to Bruno but my last remark was relating to Sland's copper.  Nice wee hammie Bruno, well done.  :)

Bruno, well done again on your hammy, nice 😊🙌, what is the other coin/token ? Not the cartwheel, or button, the other one?

Iron looks like part of the slug from a 'sad iron' or old fashioned smoothing iron...

I would agree with it being the base  part of an old iron.
