Try, Try, Try again

Well, this little story is about perseverance. One of our colleagues was getting a little despondent about finding good quality finds. After a year of trying, there was a growing sense of frustration, to the point where they threatened to give up the hobby.

Then it all changed in a weekend!

Attending 2 rallies in 2 days, the first one saw our colleague glean a lovely silver ring from the ground. Everyone was in awe at the find and were very pleased, offering congratulations all round, [whilst at the same time secretly wishing that they had found it!]

The next day, on another rally, a lovely little hallmarked silver pepperpot was dug out. The date was 1935 and a makers mark 'R & Co' clearly seen.  Well done indeed, its a lovely artefact and we all hope that you have many more quality finds along the way.

So to those of you out there who wonder when the finds will come your way, remember the saying 'Try, Try, Try again' and eventually the rewards will come.
