Elizabeth I Sixpence
- 16th C
Elizabeth I sixpences are always
nice to find and this one was no exception. I was out detecting
on my own when I found this coin. I don't usually go out on
my own now since I fell a few years ago when detecting in
Wales and broke a bone in my ankle. Not a nice experience
(see my story). The chap I arranged to go detecting with cried
off at the last minute so, with flask and sarnie already fixed
up, I went and it turned out to be a very nice day but I was
half a mile from any habitation and was a bit nervous, so
I was glad when I reached the car.
PS I would like to advise everyone
not to go detecting alone because of unforeseen accidents,
especially when, like myself, you are past your sell by date.
