A FOXY GHOST STORY
In my last blog I mentioned some of my pet hates. The picture below posted by my friend Graham Fox (Ghost) on the Premier MDF ticks most of the boxes. What a shambles! BTW, the Spook and I major in insulting each other and I intend blogging on this relationship in a future post.
Graham reported that he was searching in the field for only fifteen minutes and he uncovered a ‘few bits of this and that’. He went on to ask if anyone could give more information on the buckle.
On that visit he ended up with with several coppers, buttons and ‘some lead’. I thought that the token looked interesting and asked for a better picture. He replied, “John my man, it’s yours. PM me your address and I’ll post it on . . .” And so he did – but not before he posted a lone detector leaning on a shovel in an empty field. Another one of my pet hates. Love it!
I scanned the token as received and also after a clean by Mrs John. Below, you can see the result – after lots of patience and using a soft brush.
