You are not wrong! I spent a good few hours this weekend on the same area with no luck unfortunately. The grass didn’t get cut last year though and it is a thick mess, so I think I could be losing a couple of inches depth. I may have to wait until later this year to properly go over it. I am confident that I am not finished there though!

Amazing, just goes to show if in doubt have it out. I've only just begun but i wonder on certain signals if i should have dug them.
Fantastic finds.
