A quick call to the Farmer and all was set and in a short space of time I was on my way , finally free to once again tread the wet fields in hope . Today was more about just easing myself back into it , expectations were not high , it was more of a leisurely stroll with a swing and the stiff breeze would certainly blow a few cobwebs away .
Q40 today with raptor coil , pinpointing is so much easier with this coil compared to the not so accurate Tornado coil when using my 250 and I didn't fancy digging big holes today . Sensitivity was notched up to 80 , jewellery mode and the volume eased down on my headphones due to a slight fuzzy head , all set to go ! On my way down to the Farm I drive past this wonderful rustic old farm building , it is an impressive structure left to its own accord and apparently dates back to 1760 .If only I had the money , unfortunately the only thing I can afford is to dream about it .
Once on the field and with a couple of much needed hours to spare I set off , not with high hopes , more of a gentler approach and dare I say methodical , low and slow I've been told many a times and I was doing just that . All was going well , couple of shotgun cartridges and some non descript bits of tin foil was soon mounting up in my trash bag , at least I was finding things ! I didn't mind to be honest , just very glad to be back out in the fresh air and have some sort of normality kicking in for a change .
I had a couple of buttons , one being a merchant Navy button so things were improving and then a surprise find which was well received Hammered coin which made me blink twice such was the shock of actually finding something decent , it was totally unexpected .I think possibly a Lizzie half groat , the face is completely worn so it is just a clod shot of the reverse .Happy chappy all the same .
After that little windfall I was more than satisfied and could relax even further and just wander around aimlessly . I did have another fair decent find which unfortunately hasn't come out too well in the photograph : pendant today december.jpg
The rest of my efforts today , odds and sods but it was great to be back out again .
