Heres a couple of finds my daughter has found recently.

Royal navy Captain/commander or Lieutenant button from around 1787. The back still has its shank intact and reads "Standard Colour". A crown was added above the anchor on these buttons from 1812, so its defiantly pre 1812. I have put a 1p in the picture for size.








She has also pulled up a Qing (Ch'ing) Dynasty coin from 1736-1795 with a square hole in the centre, this has slight damage of this centre square.





These are her best 2 finds so far and she is very proud. Considering I have been over and over these fields, they are still producing some good bits. Hopefully there is a lot more to come smile

It is rocks, you never know what your going to find. Could be gold, silver, bronze or artefacts that havn't seen the light of day for years.

Great finds indeed. Well done to your daughter! I "think" the chunk of WW2 fuse is from an artillery shell of some sort. It seems conical - as per fitted to the tip of a shell. Bombs (apart from mortars) usually have a sunken fuse pocket. Top of fuse flush with the bomb case. Could be wrong?

Happy hunting!

The Chinese coin is intriguing... I wonder how it came to be here at that period in time, and who brought (and lost!) it? A seaman perhaps?

An interesting mystery! Well done to your daughter! smile
