    Confirmed: early medieval Gold and roman bits...

    On my latest hunt i had part of a once very good site under the coil. With a very small time frame it was no time to grid the whole field so i just grid the known hot spots. Finds were sparse and i assume i was later as the competition...
    Still got some finds.
    Religious pendants, buttons, token, coins and a brooch


    Scrappies, nice condition nail, drawer pull acorn, weird pendant, a first for me.


    Pendant close up


    Two better coins, left one has some silver wash left and could be an early Follis, rare in our area.



    The find of the day came 10 steps from the truck. I just thanked the detecting gods for my success whilst still swinging the coil, then a clear loud beep in the headphones...one cut with the spade and a glimpse of gold in the dirt...
    At home and cleaned it looked early medieval to me. Probably 7thC. merowingian brooch. Today a had a meet at the archies and they had a look on it.
    Early medieval is confirmed, could been a brooch, could been an earring. Against the brooch is the thick gold, against the earring is the big size of formerly about 25-30mm. As early Merowingian gold is rare as hens teeth, this little piece went into the safe at the museum immediately and will be probed from an expert soon.




    Thanks for looking and good luck to you all on your next hunts!

    Banner vote from me, that’s a superb piece of history. I wonder what it looked like before being bent up.

    Something like this is possible. This is 1th.C BC but matches the site as well. I'd say even better....have to wait what the experts say.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    The attribution for the coin on the right will contain the following words: "Providen" (possibly 'Providen tiaeaes'), turrets, door, star and camp gate.'

    I think Roman is still in the mix, either way it's an Extremely Rare Find - Big CONGRATS

    Definitely post the results. Exciting find!

    Target must be in the ground...Coil must swing over target...User must dig.

    Gold for the money...silver for the pleasure...copper for the history.
