Thread: Last coin and last signal for 2017

    Last coin and last signal for 2017

    I started detecting a new farm i gained permission for this week. It has a mill on it, a roman road crossed the land and because it is close to a ford a roman vicus is supposed. The small church in the near village, dating back 800years, has loads of roman roof tiles used for decoration in the outside walls. It was common practice to use stones and tiles of roman ruins to build new houses and especially churches.
    The field i choose has lots of roman shards but is also filled with trash. With the amount of signals i don't think it was detected before. The farmer is not aware of any detectorists on his fields (in daylight...).
    With that many trash it will take several hunts to clean and get to the good stuff.

    These are the roof tiles, masoned in a herringbone pattern on the church.




    Lots of big stuff...


    The last coin of the year was this 1 Centime copper L'an 6 (?) so probably 1797.


    The last signal of the year was this beaten fork sticking out of the ground.


    Now up to a successful 2018!
    Good luck and great finds to you all!

    Well it sounds like a great new permission to search around. I'm sure in 2018 this one will come good.

    Hi Lu. I'd say you had a pretty good yr.. What was that horde you found, like 700 coins? Sorry you didn't get silver this round. Could that item just right of center, near top, next to the biggest piece of pic. of "big stuff" be a broken plumb bob? Looks kind of like an old time cannon. Good luck & Sylvester.

    Hey Tim, last count i'm aware of was 496 or so coins for the hoarde. With the few we found after harvest we're slightly over 500.
    That toy cannon looking piece is a broken window handle.
