Congrats on the penny and the hammered! Too bad it broke, but that is what happens sometimes.....

Too bad "standard" size (600 pix wide) weren't used on here, be nice to see that a little bigger. I guess the complaining period is over (smiley)
Nice old Silver.
I once broke a coin in half popping it out from it's resting place. Figured it was probably cracked to begin with though ?

Nice finds! How did you break the coin??

Cool find indeed, but yes...how did you break a coin? Was it already cracked or something?

yes that coin it was bent in half due to it being in the ground for 700 years as hammered coins like this as made from thin silver, i tried to bend it back the way you should n it just snapped

Oh dear you should never try to straighten a Ancient Silver coin cold, it has to be annealed first.
