These are the best bits, my first George III silver, nice little buckle and a miraculous medal. Also part of a Charles IV silver reale turned up which I wasn't expecting. The Round bit of silver is quite flimsy, no idea what it's off.

6 silver hammered coins (1 in 2016; 5 in 2017) - and still searching for more
Not everything is as young as it looks
That's the lot there Dave, About a dozen pennies, handful of half pennies and a few others. Couple of nice coins from the Republic as well, albeit some the harp is only just visible. Nearly all range from Victorian to George VI. The field was used for football and horse racing in the first half of 1900s.
A few earlier coins turned up too, but in poor condition. One I can just about make out a bust on which I think is Charles II (another detectorist with me found a Charles in slightly better shape). Also another Hibernia coin with the harp - the shape of the harp means likely earlier than Georgian; maybe late 1600s
