Got out yesterday with some friends to a 1700s farm. Things started slow, but soon found a King George II half penny. It's pretty busted, but at least it can be identified. Then got a tombac button. One of the guys found an 1806 half cent there. We then moved to a second field where I quickly found two flat buttons, then got a nice 1749 KGII farthing! Then another flat button, and a fatty IHC (186?). It slowed way down for all of us after that, and I squeezed out one final button toward the end. Was nice to get out, but the ticks were ridiculous. May have gotten a fragment of another half penny. It's the same size, but I can't see any details, so could just be a piece of metal. HH all!
