A penny and a farthing

Spent both Saturday and Sunday looking for treasure. found a few things on Saturday including an 1854 Queen Victoria penny. Sunday I found only what at first I thought was a brown bugger. Then I saw KG V on the obverse and was delighted to confirm it was in fact a farthing.

Another to do list item ticked off.

1854 Queen Victoria Penny

Sadly I scratched it getting it out. It's pretty toasted!

1877 penny in this photo was not detected on this day, rather just included for size reference.

1918 King George V Farthing

Happy 100th birthday little half a bike!

This rang up at 79 - 82 on the XP Deus, when I first saw it I figured it was a brown bugger, but then thought no the VDI was too low for a 1c or 2c. I was delighted when I saw it was a (my first) farthing.

This 2c coin was found the previous day and is included for a size reference.

It's that time of year when there are some great photo ops on the fungi. Thought I'd take a shot at this one.
