Nice to meet some of the guys and girls on Sunday.
Although this is one of my permissions and I have done many hours on the fields there is still an abundance of stuff coming up every time the fields are ploughed.
An enjoyable day even if it was baltic weather. All the digging kept everybody warm.
As usual my finds very varied from this field with the most notable being a 1902 american indian head one cent (in poor condition), a 1897 3d, a machine gun corps button and what might be a heraldic pendant. Loads of other stuff, lead, copper, brass fittings pieces of hallmarked silver spoons(may have been silver plated) a brass threaded tube with a cork stopper in the end, numerous brass labels etc.

Most of the items I dug.

Silver 3d

Machine gun corps button

Indian head one cent 1902

Indian head date

Pendant

Lead pieces

Copper and brass

More copper and brass

And still more

Coins buttons and bag seals.

All in all a hard days digging.
I found the 3d late in the day and when I got home it was not in my pocket. I took the dogs for a walk on Monday morning to where I had found it and retraced my steps and there it was in its zip lock bag beside the hole where I had found it. Lucky or what. My hands were that cold that I must have missed my pocket when I was putting it away.
Thanks to the organisers.

Here's our finds - a pretty cool pocket watch mechanism and various other bits and bobs.






Anyone know what these are?

Right... here's my collection of pictures.  The soldier is kilted... the rusty marks on the paper are a testament to what happens when you drag a drawer knob across your lovely crafted bit of paper before realising it had a hole in it and was full of water.  DOH!  Was too tired to re-do it all.  Heheheheheh.

Big thank you to Lucky for getting me to the rally and Magicmark for getting me back.  The willingness of people to help out, whether it be with transport, ID's or technical assistance is what makes a good detecting community.  Much appreciated guys.  :D

and lastly...

Company is Teesdale and Co.  I think I can read they were/are confectioners.  Ignore the fact I misspelt the name on the bit of paper.  My brain was still cold.   ;D

StirlingSteve, the 1st thingy is a decorated plate out of a watch. It would have been fitted over the workings.

Carrumba  the thingy that looks like a hunting horn is in fat a window catch. See one I found and Hubby I.D'd. He found some on a re-cycling site. I found another one a few days ago.

Cheers Val!

Good to know what it actually is- suspected it was a functional thingamy of something or other!  Hehehe.

Butehawk I feel certain that you have a heraldic mount there!

Yeah Butehawk! The pendant could well have a fantastic story behind it! Great find and one high on my list. Love heraldic stuff since I found a lot of buttons with the Overtoun crest. Great additional pics since the last time I checked. They just keep coming - what a productive site!
