Meeting of the 5th September 2019.        Our finds competition winners are as follows:

Coin of the Month First: Mary, Groat, Jenny Grace

Coin of the Month Second: Edward, 1/2d, Rod Furniss

Artefact of the Month First: Complete Quadruple Seal Matrix, Michelle Marshall

Artefact of the Month Second: Eighteenth Century Posey Ring: with the inscription ‘united by friendship’, Adam Matthias

A nice interesting mix of finds on the finds table

Also a selection of Crotal Bells, this month’s subject for our interest table, members are now remembering about this and there was a good range both complete and broken, one member brought along a display of 9 bells mounted on a board.  

Our October theme is Short Cross Pennies “not all of them, just your best” was the request from our chairman. This rules me out as I only have one hammered, it is a long cross and completely fried!  However there is a month between now and then and I may yet find a contribution for the table.

Our new FLO Dr Maria Kneassey was also in attendance and will be visiting us every 3 months or so.  Her table in the corner was busy all evening and we welcome her to her new post.

Finally just a reminder, we are still on the look out for a new chairman so if any of our members fancy taking it on please let Rod know.
