    I cannot believe it, got home and...... another one! Gold Tremissis !

    Yesterday I went back to the area where I found the Tremissis from Dorestad. I was planning on searching the field next to it if the corn was off. Turning off a main road onto a very small village road I saw my farmer, he was seeding another field with grass seed. He stopped and I got out and went to him, giving him a sack with a couple cabbages (they are really great) that I received from yet another farmer, he gave me a sack with about 30 of them, and it almost broke my back getting them into the car.

    Well anyway, asked him who owned the land next to the Tremissis field and he told me, Oh Yea I know him, I searched another field further up the road back in the spring which he owned (found nothing but bad old copper coins). So turned around and went back a few miles to his farm, he was not home and I could not find him, so was writing him a note when he appeared. No problem about searching, so I drove back to the field. I forgot my camera again, but going back tomorrow and will add a couple. So started searching yesterday and although I found a few coins but not much more until I got a beep and out popped a neat silver button, an old one.

    So today decided to return, if a neat silver button is there I should find more. And I did, a few copper coins and other stuff. While digging that stuff out I found a small coin, I thought it was a silver 10 cent piece from the 20th century, they were tiny. So put it in a separate bag and when I got home dumped everything in the water, and opened up the bag to clean the coin. I was shocked, ANOTHER Tremissis!! Amazed at this I called my wife to look (I think I thought I was seeing things!) and she agreed. ANOTHER...

    So took some photos, which I will share with you. I have not cleaned the coin, and I don't think I will. Maybe have it professionally cleaned, its just too valuable. I have seen some of the prices for these coins and they are high, and I don't want to mess the coin up, although you cannot mess up gold very easy.

    This was an unique experience, I don't think I will ever be able to do this again, just finding one is a find of your life, but two.... (PS: I only have one life).

    Re: I cannot believe it, got home and...... another one! Gold Tremissis !

    Thanks to all of you, SS, Shaun, Westfront, Tuberale and Cru! To tell you the truth I am still shaking! Never thought I would ever find such a couple of fields, they really both have never been searched I would imagine. And this is yes, impossible. Such rare coins. I am going back tomorrow and find the third. Then there must be a cache someplace.

    Cru there was a huge farm right between both of the fields. That should explain the well in the field for drinking water. They were always in back of the farm, and this one is too. I though the bricks were not so old. Funny that I don't find anything from the farm.

    More tomorrow I hope...

    congrats on the gold coin!! I like the button too! We all know how hard it is to make the banner for a find from other countries because those here do not know the scarcity of the items! you got my vote!
