Is it a rose farthing?

Post by Bargeman » Thu Sep 13, 2018 7:11 pm

I managed a couple of hours after work today, up on some old pasture, and swinging my Nox 800, in field 2, 5 tones, reaction, at 5, and iron at 2 ::g

I managed a few nice items , very pleased with the tiny engraved button, always pleased to find a crotal bell, and even better when it rings as well. But my question is this, is this little beat up copper hammered a rose farthing? if it is, it is my first one, and my third hammered from this small field ::g

Well done. ::g Unbelievably sensitive machine, I've been finding individual lead shotgun pellets recently but I think that I'll be trying to ignore them in future. :D

Thanks Fred, this small field has a line of airgun pellets 25 yards in from one end, they are everywhere, but you can't ignore them, not with small hammered in the area ::g the other problem is just under the surface is a layer of small flint that makes digging all bel impossible when the ground is hard x; 8-|
