    A child's shoe, a horseshoe and a landmine.   We don't deep dig any more so no finds in ages.

    I found a Krauwinkel jeton.  About the same era as David's coin.  Thought it was that bit of metal you get at the top of a wine bottle and went to screw it up between my fingers and then throw it away.  Only it wouldn't screw up!

    Dug up a full cow recently.

    It was a small plastic cow actually, so no need to call the health inspectors.

    Landmine - house and garden in Belgium so occupied territory in both world wars.  Allied airmen hidden in farmers' pigeon lofts and passed on down the line to get home and so on.   The old cobbled road in front of the house has scratched lines along its entire length from the passage of allied tanks chasing the Germans back east.  

    Napoleon's lot and assorted Prussians went past too but left no souvenirs that we have found.
