    Let's make a list of your accomplishments today:

    1. discovered ancient oyster shucking knife
    2. found a Roman coin in Baltimore
    3. prospected up some silver
    4. found a cool old penny
    5. stayed out of trouble (I am assuming this one is true)

    Keep up the great work!

    Also the knife looks like a classic shucking knife with its large handle and short slender blade. I see youíre in around Baltimore so itís plausible I suppose. My guess would be late 19th or 20th C.
    I defer to Crusader, but man that looked like copper and exactly the size of the IHC next to it. Congrats

Spending a few hours on 8Rs home turf, discovering our similarities and love for the hobby absolutely priceless, so what if i didnít find what I was hoping for (yet) I got to make a new friend! Thanks Lilo for a wonderful afternoon and congratulations on your finds. Looking forward to getting together again soon!

The sandy patina is due to having been buried somewhere with a dry climate (before it got to Baltimore of course), most likely Spain or the Near East where many of these are found. The coin itself is fairly common as literally millions of these types exist today. An awesome find probably dropped from someone's coin collection!
    Indeed that probably how it ended in Baltimore, but it was still a thrill seeing something like that pop out of the ground. Thanx for ur input regarding the authenticity of the piece.

    Hi Scrappy, I know its more of bronce type since it only rings up 55 on the At Pro, the IHPs ring up in the low 70s.

    Uh wow! How about that for a Baltimore park find? Great going 8R, that is awesome! Just goes to show that you gotta keep getting out there and interesting things will end up under our detectors.
