    Finally harvest

    Best picture of the week. It took a long time....



    We had to wait long this year to have some fields harvested worth detecting. These finds come off a field near a roman site.
    I met two farmers too, talking to them is important for a good relationship and always fun.

    Lead


    WWII, trash, roman nails


    Musket balls


    Buttons, horse harness mount, pipe stems, half of a glass bead


    Coins and tokens including a roman srcappy and a 20 Pfennig silver you get rarely under the coil.

    Thanks for looking!

    Westfront,

    Glad to see the fields are finally opening up for you. Looks like you had a nice hunt for the day, I especially like the silver 20 pfennig coin - but then again, who doesn’t like silver.

    I am sure you will soon be back to finding those great Roman coins and relics you have previously posted to the board.

    Good luck with your hunts.

    Hi Walt, it was more or less a random field between two roman sites. I hoped for some roman finds along the connection between these sites. Not much roman, but i like the 20 Pfennig. More ancient stuff will come soon!

    I bet that silver comes up about as much as a Roman one! Looks great.

    Nothing like driving bye and seeing the harvester, or the round bales in the field.
    Well done on the hunt, the silver is in fine shape.

    Nice bunch of finds! Cool photo. How do you decide where to start in such a vast, featureless field? Near the road corner?


    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    The Bald Eagle photo...he/she posed for me, gave me it's best American look. I felt privileged to get the shot.

    In fact, it's way more rare than a roman silver when it comes to detecting. You get many of the 10 Pfennig Silver/Billon coins. Finding the good silver (.900) 20 Pfennig is every other year at best.

    Laying between two roman sites there had to be a trackway, most likely in a straight line connecting the sites. Then you start in a zig zag pattern looking for pottery and other related finds. If you're not sucessful just swing the coil and have fun. Here is a roman coin in every field and a silver too. You just have to get the coil over it.

    Ya know Lu, it's like mushroom hunting. One you see the first one, the others come easier. Nice score on the silver. Good luck.
