Not expected to be the best find but ill get the ball rolling and enter the wee glass perfume bottle my son found. A really big thank you to Morayhunter who identified the bottles use/ possible age  and the company.

I didn't get anything spectacular.



A cartwheel, a winder, bale seal, pastry cutter wheel, cow tag, some coins and my favourite: Bovril token, other side has Farringdon St London and an example can be found in UKFD



Had a great time though!!!!!

 :) Here is a picture of my best find for the Sunday.

Not exactly ancient but still a nice thing to find and made of silver retaining traces of its original enamel work.

Was found in the carrot field facing Scone under a lot of nice looking Carrots.

This is my entry for the competition, its not the best photo, but cant seem to get it in great light or at a decent angle, David Baileys job is safe i think. It was found in the afternoon on top of the left hand mound of the top field, just a hundred yards from the barn,  
             Thanks to Lucky who id' it as a silver bodkin circa 16th or 17th century.
                  Jim,    
 
  
Got a reply from treasure trove on the object , here it is.

Dear Mr Ingram,
Thanks, this looks very interesting; this is most likely a bodkin of Dutch origin and 17th century date. However the slot in the end of the needle as well as at the top might suggest it was used for passing a securing ribbon through clothes, which would suggest a 16th century date. I don’t think it possible to be definite until I have seen the object. I also have a question about the condition of the object; has this been treated or cleaned in any way?
Regards,
Stuart Campbell
