    BTJ2...the pic to the right shows some cracking, or chipping, indicative of pewter, or lead as IP states...as much as I would like that to be a hammered silver coin, I doubt it, especially with the additional input of the other members. But keep on digging! There's most likely much more in the ground than you have recovered. Ddf

    Awesome finds.
    The Finder and Keeper of treasures. Keep a look out for my upcoming metal detecting series The American Dirt Pirates. I just became the proud owner of a bunch of detectors and equipment so I will be making a lot of videos testing out each one of these detectors.

    Looks like an earlier spoon on the bottom...Joey is a smart guy so I'll agree with his assessment of age.
