Hopefully get out for a couple of hours tomorrow, ground here is pretty solid with the frost though. Hope the pasture produces some great finds for you  :)

Did'nt have much luck today.Loads of trash and four coins that are so thin you cant make them out.M.C says three of them are Turners but who knows?.It was great weather wise.Hardly any finds less than 6" deep,most at least8 to 12",lucky it was easy digging.It was all pasture that had'nt been ploughed for many a year.The farm next to it has a Peel ruin and a old settelment.Already working on the land owner :-\.Morayhunter,If your wife is like mine,trust me SHE KNOWS ;D.

usualy where you get turners there's a good chance of a hammie...turners are old scottish hammered copper coins ;)
Cheers Stuart.

I'ld like to think so.Everything is just so deep I get a lot of mixed signals.I think it's a case of digging nearly everything :(.

aye above info spot on and if your finding turners a silver charlie might appear and scottish silver coins are more collectable than their english counterparts  ;D ;D
