    1597 Gold Dukat

    Today i went back to the Field where the Roman Denarius was found on thursday. It was a long day, 8 hrs in rain and wind. Thursday the soil was dry to the bone and now when conditions were better the finds were better too. A bunch of WWII scrap like usual (buttons, buckle, cap badge are the better finds). coins were sparse like the last time, but this hunt a beautiful 1597 Nederlands Gold Dukat and a 1638 Cologne hammered Silver popped up! I found an scrappy roman sestercius too, but it didn't know where it is... Well spent weekend time. Best is that the date from these two coins is in the same timeframe and the silver one had thick green patina on it. May coming from a small hoard? Enjoy the pics!

    I think those Silver hammered were either plated or debased, hence the patina.

    Well it was about time for your 'big' coin. I voting now! Looks GREAT!!!

    I was going to say, that it would straighten good, being high grade thin gold makes it a safe bet, but I left it to you. GOOD CALL!
