Today's mixed finds from studying some old photos.

Post by boywonderwilson » Tue Jan 01, 2019 9:57 pm

Last few days been doing my homework on the site I am using at the moment and I came across a 1920s photo of some very elegant party's , so cross referencing this to current layout of grounds I found its now a wood 😣 but a clear area of around 3 acres yielded this mixed bag, with about 25 viccy pennys also. From this 1 site alone in 2018 I have managed to recover 700+ pennys,farthings,threepences,half pennys it's just the land that keeps on giving and although nothing to old or valuable I find all these little finds very interesting and each bit has got a little story to tell.

hello, goes to show it is not all about finding gold, items of historical interest are always worth finding, silver coins pre 1947 have a good value,
