I was elated to see the footpath leading into the fields had been mowed since my last visit. I have no idea how you did it because it is pretty narrow and there’s a kissing gate at one end. Just a few feet onto the path I had a strong signal and it turned out to be this toy car from the movie Cars. Not sure if the text on the side is Japanese or a sound effect maybe?
Here’s what it looked like before it was lost on the footpath. Apparently it’s a special colour changing model released in September of 2017:
I checked several different spots on the way down the path but there wasn’t much of note. A lot of iron signals that discouraged me from doing more digging and several dog walkers that kept me moving along. 🙂
Once in the field I found a musket ball, which wasn’t a surprise as this is one field over from where the ammo cache was found and if I remember the old map data correctly, these three fields were all one field back in the day.
I also found an unknown coin and a very shiny naval button probably Victorian or more recent:
It’s gold-plated on the front, the reverse says ‘Made in England’ but does not include a maker’s name.
The prize of the day though was this text book quality spectacle buckle from late 15th-early 16th century. It is in really good shape for being 8 inches down in very rocky soil:
Cheers, and thank you again for a good day’s detecting!
