    My oldest coins to date

    It took a trip to England to find them, but, that's the fun of this hobby! The top coin is a 1696 William III shilling, the next line down on the left is a fragment of a 1279 Edward 1st long cross penny, the one on the right is a 1590-2 Elizabeth 1st silver penny, the bottom row on the left is a mid 4th century Constantine Roman bronze, followed by a 355 A.D. Constantius II Roman silver, and a 1659 Joseph Walford copper trade farthing. I recommend taking a detecting trip there if you can. Such tiring fun!

    Yeah, a lot of my YouTube watching, are detectorists in the UK, who find simular age spans - coinage from the ages...! What fun! I envy you!

    Your be surprised to hear, I think that your rarest find was the Shilling. (In probability terms)

    I agree with most of the IDs but the ''Constantius II Roman silver'' has to be incorrect, as it looks like a Denarius & not a Siliqua. So a much earlier Roman silver.

    Very nice. I'd like to go but the trip for me would be near impossible. Back in 1989 or so I was digging at a burned down plantation in South Carolina. I dug this slightly large than a nickle bronze "coin" which turned out to be Byzantine from the 6th century, and last year 2 small Roman coins from NJ where ships' ballast from WWII had been dumped.

    But going across the pond would be fun.
