While walking in the country yesterday I spotted an insignificant-looking round flat thing on the path in the middle of a field. I thought it was probably a bit of scrap metal but I picked it up anyway to check. In fact it is a hammered silver half groat (= two pence) coin from the reign of Charles the First, 1625-1649. Not worth an enormous sum but I was absolutely made up to find it and didn't even mind getting soaked. I do like it when life gives you these little presents from nowhere. Pictures of said coin, plus one of my trusty Watchco at the end of the walk.
