    Back on track, Roman silver and a ....

    After a couple test runs on new fields finally something worth posting.
    And this stuff is coming off a field we detect every year, not from the new farms...



    Bits 'n pieces



    Two 1800s coppers and a totally worn out silver of the same age.



    Roman coins







    Other roman stuff



    Detail of the gilded ear ring



    Leather mount

    Congratulations Westfront!
    Probably, the winged angel coin is a Byzantine one from Constantine I( the Great).
    We shall hunt on the beaches, we shall hunt on the landing grounds, we shall hunt in the fields and in the streets, we shall hunt in the hills, we shall never surrender. 2018

    Thanks Vince! Looks like the TR mintmark for Treverorum/Trier.

    Nice score Lu. Hope you caught some rain to soften the ground. Is that thing second from left, in with the bullets a plum bob? Good luck.

    Glad you back on the goodies. Must be wet enough for you by now. Hope to see lots more. Below is Cru'dads IDs:

    ''Silver is:

    Septimius Severus Denarius. Probably Laodicea mint, 197 AD.

    Obv: [L SE]PT SEV PE-RT A[VG IMP VIII], laureate head right
    Rev: [BONI E]VE[NTVS], Bonus Eventus standing left, holding basket of fruits in right hand, grain ears in left. RSC 67b. RIC 447

    Bronze is

    Constantinople Commemorative AE3 Trier Mint 333-334 AD

    Obv: CO[NSTAN-TINOPOLIS] City Goddess Constantinopolis helmeted head left
    Rev: NO LEGEND/Wreath/TR[ ] Victory stood left on Prow leaning on shield with Wreath in left field

    Broken AE3 looks like ]STANTINVS PF A[VG] for Constantine I''

    Westfront,

    Congratulations on an outstanding hunt, good to see that you are back on track. Definitely a nice haul of Roman coins, both the silver and bronze have great details and look like they were dropped not too long after being minted. It is amazing what still comes out of the ground after being hunted multiple times. Good luck with your hunts. Walt

    Hi Tim, we finally had some soaking rain and conditions are good now. Unfortunately the green manure in most fields is too high now. We have the potatoe fields now and the sugar beet coming soon. The piece between the bullets is a window handle. I hoped for a toy cannon....

    Thanks to Crudad first!
    Yes, the rain we had did good. Compact soil, nice and wet with signals coming loud and clear! I try to get out as often as possible now.
    Today we checked out a site on a new farm. All there, tiles, pottery, frags of sandstone, lead, but nothing else than loads of cal. .50, shrapnel and driving bands. We have to clear that trash...

    Thanks Walt! I checked my records. I detected this field 21 times and i'm not the only one there...but probably the only one who knows the signals.

    Are you going to apply anything with the bronze one to protect the patina?
