Sorry Bill ... nothing yet!

English detectorists weren't stumped and have contributed a few more examples for Brian's second book.
See the updates.

Brian Meilak has produced V2 of his Cricket Buckles and I have updated my blog.
He has included the examples supplied by Stephen Grey and Matt Bullimore and many from the UKDFD.

Shouldn't have taken so long.
There is an alphabetical list of contributors at the end.
See the index on pages 926 - 8
