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

    Nice silver finds! The first item, if it's not a coin, looks like a wine bottle seal.

    No worries! It's a Brakteat for sure. We call them "Hohlpfennig". https://www.google.com/search?q=hohl...nt=firefox-b-d

    Some are quite valuable and hundreds of different ones out there... Good find and congrats on all that silver!

    They regulary come holed. I don't know if it's true but the saying is they were sewn into the clothes through that hole.

    Well, if travelling, that practice was still about in the 18th C.

    Congrats on the silver and especially the bracteate. Something different for sure and didn't even know they existed, most interesting post up.

    Only the 2nd in 12 years lol, rarer than platinum it seems!

    I'd try contacting specialist collectors with your pictures, it's an arcane realm and probably even more difficult to navigate than newbies with no language/alphabet exposure trying to identify random ancient Greek coins. Generally speaking collectors like helping with identification of their favored items and enjoy sharing their interests, so don't be shy and keep us updated!

    I didn't know they existed either. If I were not with my digging partner I would have assumed it was a button or decoration. I'm on a German treasure Hunter site, an English one, and tnet, and I've not seen another posted. Elusive little buggers.

    Am i really the first here? I think with only one posted on T-Net in 2008 and probably a rare one with no match found it's worth to be on top.
    I put in a vote.

    Very cool stuff!
    If its silver, then it might be a coin, but the reverse is....weird, but quite old...!!
