|The following finds were made on DetectingScotland.com digs. Continually interesting areas!|
|Copper and bronze coins, one is Georgian and has been turned into an token via the wonder of countermarking! This one is marked 'XX.'|
|Decorative lead piece, possibly a leaf.|
|1816 King George III Sixpence (.925)|
ca. 1300 Edward I Hammered Silver Longcross Penny
'CIVI TAS LON DON' - City of London mint.
Always great to get silver and when you find a hammered silver, it's even sweeter!
3 copper Farthings (two Victoria & George II,) 3 Pennies (two George V, George III,) 2 Half Pennies (one Irish George III,) one bent Half Penny (?) Georgian.
A strange oval shaped token was the mystery of the bunch here, but was then ID'd as a Half Penny Token for Glasgow Tramcars, issued to the blind. A nice find and a fairly unusual one.
|ca. mid 17th Century spur buckle|
Copper alloy composition and small! The inner rectangle on the bottom of
the buckle measures roughly 1cm long.
|Bronze religious cross, quite small at only 4cm down the long arm.|
|Dished button with a shield accompanied by two figures. |
Bear that image in mind for a later find, they may well be connected!
|Odd ring shaped copper alloy find with a small bronze trade weight.|
|Two ex-thimbles! Most likely copper alloy advertising pieces from the early 1900's.|
|Sterling silver cane ferrule, Birmingham assayed.|
|Odd bronze chunk, possibly a cooking pot or similar fragment.|
|Lead sailboat mast and sail piece, the Shamrock III, made and launched|
in Dumbarton and operating ca 1900.
Copper alloy decorative clasp.
|Large hat buckle with abstract shape design. First of these that I've found, |
so it made for something a bit different!
|Lead horse and rider, musket and sword in tow!|
|Big gilt button, always good to see with some detail. Currently in olive oil!|
|Small shoe buckle, ca 18th Century|
|1860 Queen Victoria Sixpence (.925)|
|Lead palm guard, possibly marked from saddle stitching with a bodkin, or similar activity where a large needle would be used.|
|1920's King George V Farthing|

One ounce of solid copper, these coins didn't last long, and were replaced by a smaller more conveniently sized coin in 1799.
