Default From the Sheep fields. (England)

Finding fields this time of the year can be quite difficult so having to dig rock hard ground and trying not to step in the calling cards left by the local sheep population.

Its taken me a while to accumulate enough finds to post on the forum.

These finds from two farms and several fields.

Thanks for looking..........Doug.

Nice digs! I enjoy the history you have over there! Such an old country compared to the metal we get here.

Great stuff! Would it be asking too much to have the watch beside the winder? Maybe ...

Thank you. Watch winders are quite a common find, unfortunately the watches are not.
