Thread: Roman/Saxon Site - BIG HAMMERED!

    ''Does that mindset change Cru if it’s a site that’s produced a high number of rare or scarce finds or if it’s a preferred date range?''

    It's purely done to ensure we use our most valuable resource (Time) in the most effective way. We prioritise based on other facts as well & a site with low productivity may come to the top of the list if all other options are unavailable.

    We have discovered 40+ Roman Sites & we have to spent the limited time we have at the right places. Plus Cru'Dad gets bored if he's not continually GPSing Roman Coins.

    Not quite true as your copper age, if I remember right is over 1000 years older than our Bronze Age (our earliest metal history).

    Congratulations on the Big Hammered Silver and all your other finds. A tip of the hat to you and Cru-dad for working in a mud pit to get to those recoveries.

    Congrats to Crudad on a big one! Not clipped, not broken, well centered... That happens rarely. With all that the wear doesn't mind.

    Yes, wear & a weak obverse strike which is a common thing on Lizzy coins. Not sure why its always the Obverse, but it is.

    Diminishing returns are just a part of the game, although if I pulled a monster hammered like that I'd be picking the bones from the bones. Well done Cru

    Nice picking it off on the silver, nice detail on the one side.

    Just a query on the site: How many deep plows has it had in the last 10 yrs?

    None.
    Most places now do the minimal till theory.

    I know it was a freak find. I would have had this before the small 4 inch turn that tipped it to the top. So I had a bad swing or the Cortes missed it.
