    Gold and silver coin hoard from 30 years war

    I was stationed in Germany and a buddy and I went searching the woods a few towns over from our base. We found a set of woods near a small stream and started searching. I found a few old buttons and then started finding some trash from what appeared to be a recent campsite. I hit a really good signal and dig what I initially thought to be a large bottle cap or small jar lid until I wiped away the dirt and saw the date of 1619 on a coin! This was my first silver coin ever. I went to find my friend to show him and bring him back to the site. He was floored and we not 1 minute into searching again I hit another signal in the mid50s range. Out popped another first: a gold coin! I was in shock. We started hitting more signals and before you know it, we pulled 18 gold and 10 silver coins ranging in dates from the 1400s to early 1600s. Only 2 coins were alike; all others were from different denominations. Best we could figure out that this was a spill from the 30 Years War.Click image for larger version.

    Great opening post !
    Welcome to Treasurenet.
    The legend on the big silver Dutch Republic coin reads CONCORDIA RES PARVÆ CRESCUNT; meaning 'in harmony, small things flourish' OR 'work together and accomplish more.'
    Would sure like to see both sides of each of those coins, if possible.
    That is an unbelievable collection of saves.

    I'm happy for you, but the sour grapes side of me wants to quit detecting here in the USA where a really good day may be a Barber or Indian head...lol. Ah to have all of Europe in my backyard!
