I returned to my permission for several hours this morning. I brought a friend along, who’d offered me the opportunity to visit his permissions well before I had any of my own or the prospect of any. I was hoping for a good day also for my friend’s sake, but this field was much quieter. I had a nice musket ball, a modern Liz II penny, a series of buttons, a lead fishing weight, and a strange little image of a barrel. The stellar find of the day was an apparently ancient key. My friend found some sort of modern trade token or seal, a George VI ha’penny, and an interesting, unidentified conical piece (below).
