Invited Spectra up for a few hours in an old field. Managed a couple of Scottish coins, crux pellet penny and an early Scottish hammered, possibly David 1st..

...stunning coin Jim, well found mate. It is a David I, period C, (+D[AVIT R]EX) and looks like it is by Hugo out of the Roxburgh mint, ([+HU]GO. ON. R[OCASBURG], Spink 5007. Quite a rare coin which may be an unrecorded specimen!!
