George III sixpence, jewellery and more fungi

semi-precious stone in mount
On Saturday I found Turf Mottlegill fungi near the Roundstone Pub. On Sunday I was metal detecting with my club and found a George III 1817 sixpence and an interesting piece of jewellery consisting of a large semi-previous stone, possibly a citrine, set in a copper-gilt mount. It may be Tudor. The farm field was 50% grass 50% soil and I found Cup fungi, Pleated Inkcaps, Stubble Rosegills and Winter Twiglets.
