Cousins, George and buttons

On Saturday we saw arrived in Woking for lunch at cousin Linda's. Richard and Jenny were already there and Sheila arrived shortly after. Linda had a wonderful salad feast for us, finished off with cheesecake. A very enjoyable reunion, thanks to Linda for hosting it.

On Sunday I attended a club dig. An excellent bronze axe-head was found, but not much else I think. My haul was an 1861 penny, 1861 halfpenny, 1926 penny, two George (III?) halfpennies, both very thin, one with no marking, one with Georgious just visible, a tombac button, a gilt button and button with radial stripes and a second flower shaped piece attached.. I also had a tiny coin, 14.6mm and 1.22g. The only coin I can match it to is a rose farthing of Charles I, but there are no marking left to verify this. Pictures later.
