There are a few variables here that could change the possible solutions.
But have you checked the Page ID ( Post ID ). I see you use the global $post variable. The ID can be changed by Plugins and Themes during the “PHP page compiling process”. Maybe you can “hardcode” to test if everything is working fine. The Page ID you need can be found when editing the page in the backoffice ( WP Admin ).
E.g. When editing a page you get the URL https://www.mywebsite.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=71 => 71 is the Post ID you need to pass in get_field( ‘mycustomfield’, 71 );
If this works, you need to rethink the global $post; $post->ID logic… Something is changing it before you can use it.
Hope this helps.

ACF wouldn’t be so widely used in WordPress if it didn’t have some pretty amazing capabilities. In this article, we look at a few of the features we’ll discuss during “7 things you didn’t know you could do with ACF” at #WPEDecode later this month. https://t.co/5lnsTxp81j pic.twitter.com/Yf0ThPG1QG— Advanced Custom Fields (@wp_acf) March 16, 2023
