|Elizabeth I sixpence 1562|
I attended a Midweek Searchers rally at Ogbourne St George, Wiltshire Saturday and Sunday. There were some great finds including a half sovereign, Celtic, Roman and medieval hammered coins. These were few and far between though. I was one of the lucky ones with a silver Elizabeth I sixpence.
my other finds:
Cartwheel penny, Georgian halfpenny, 19thC farthing, 14 assorted buttons, remains of a Lesney matchbox Sambron jacklift, bone-handled penknife, unidentified plate, Eley shotgun cartridge.
