Anyway, today in woodland on an old disused footpath we found this. I am sure it is a lead token and is very fragile to the touch. You can see the damage to the edges just by it's initial clean as it came out of the ground. I've spent a couple of hours trying to research it but, to be honest, I've no idea.
I had my 400i set on Custom mode with iron discrimination on and 2 bars from top of sensitivity. It was around 8-10 inches deep at the edge of the path. Soil conditions were quite sandy and damp.
We'd love it if one of you could help us out with this one. Also, if it is old, do we need to report it to FLO?

You do not have to record it with the FLO but it is nice to and I would certainly encourage you to. Well that is if you can get to see one, all my local ones are too busy or there’s no one in post
