      Well done Bob.

      @Rew I am sorry but I do not know &the Flo at Truro museum was unsure .One thing that did surprise her was the dark blackish colouration in the two parallel grooves running near the outer edges which she thought was a form of ochre dye & which had survived even though it had been in the ground around 3000 years , incredible this hobby is full of surprises .

      I could not agree with you more historical finds are the real reward & whilst value finds are not to be sneezed at they are really immaterial. Whilst there is evidence of the Roman occupation here in Cornwall some 2000 years ago it is sparse and the thrill of finding the odd Roman coin or artifact is unbelievable , it really is like winning the lottery
