This came up from a decent depth of around 6", in a field of heavy, clayey soil that was ploughed about a month ago but hasn't yet been rolled. With all the recent rain, it's settling down quite nicely now, although it's still quite lumpy and aerated.
Found with the Equinox 800: Field 1, Recovery 3, Iron Bias 1, Sensitivity 24.
It gave quite a faint but well-defined low-end signal, of the sort you'd get from a small scrap of lead. (Dig 'em all, guys.)
I believe the full inscription on the whole coin would have been +HAROLD REX ANGLO / +CINRIC ON NORÐP (moneyer Cinric, Norwich mint), with PAX across the centre of the reverse. (Very rare, apparently.)
I'm well chuffed.
