    Not sure it makes me that more happy, most the time they tell us what we know. What makes me happy is knowing we had a really rare one when I found it & hardly being able to wait to get home to find out exactly how rare.
    Compliments are nice but not important, what is important is Cru'Dad & I hold some of the best records & when we are allow to share them we do. Like I said in the arrowhead thread, both parties benefit from the knowledge shared.

    How do you find Gold coins? Reply: 'By finding lots of Silver ones..'

    Only ever use the Deus with the 11" Coil nowadays, the GMP is now a reserve.

    They surely did do it in England, and long before spanish coins were in the americas.

    In fact that is where the word farthing came from, the cutting up, or "forthing" of a penny. I just came across that tidbit while looking up the recently posted irish farthing. They produced the first farthings about 1280 to stop the cutting of pennies, and the resulting uneven weighted coins that process made.
