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.
