Just found out today after cleaning this coin I'd found a 1686ad Irish James II halfpenny. So a nice surprize for me, it is a lot thinner coin than I thought it would be.

Hi
     Here are 3 of my finds from last weeks dig. The ships wheel pendant is silver but un hallmarked. The small clasp is also silver hallmarked Birmingham 1905 James fenton. The horseshoe brooch is silver with gold trim and lettering. unfortunatly some of the letters are missing but the impressions of the missing ones can still be seen.It originaly said "A RUN OF LUCK". Can make out the sterling silver mark and the makers mark ( R&Co) but no assay office or date letter.

Here's the more identifiable finds from my day getting used to the new machine. 

The squashed copper thing certainly looks like a thimble but with no top to it.  Please with the Edward VII Farhting as not found anything from that reign as yet so fills another wee gap in my coin chronology.  :-)  The Viccy thruppence is a new one for me too but is badly worn.  When you look at the picture of it, tilt your head to the left and you will see the faint outline of the crown with the "3" underneath.  Actually... from looking at Maxewwlles piccies - it's probably more likely a worn George V thruppence.

Viccy/Georgean Marble was obviously not a metal detector find as such - was in the same hole as the thruppence.  Heheheheh.

Cheers.
