    Grubbed-Out Hedge Site - Day 4 - Roman Silver & Celtic Potin...

    Finally they have drilled all the sites we have been waiting for. This means a second bite of the cherry after doing them all in ankle breakers!
    We gridded for 5 hours today in slightly cooler weather...

    24 Roman Bronze Coins (2 good ones)
    Tudor Strap-end
    Medieval Book Fitting
    Roman Hob-Nail
    Roman Ring Bezel
    Fibula Catch-plate & bits...
    William III Shilling (Don't get too many Shillings from this period)
    Circa 6th C Saxon Chip Carved decoration
    Blacken Denarius of Sept Sev AD201 (Type we need) Cru'dad got OTWBTTC
    Circa 80BC Celtic Potin Unit (Coin) (Type we need)

    A Roman Lead Plum Bob from a Groma which was the main Roman Surveying Instrument. Never had one & I think it's pretty rare!

    A solid day out!

    No never.
    I'm photophobic (Most pictures of me only exist to capture the fish), so moving pictures would be a thousand times worse.

    Nice day out and about without busting any ankles.

    You may have touched on this before, but these finds don't have to be reported since they aren't considered precious metal?
    Thanks in advance. PP55

    It's not because they have precious metals, otherwise the Roman Silver would qualify. It's because single gold or silver coins don't count.
    Basically it has to be over 300 years old with 10% gold or silver content but not single coins, only 2 or more in close proximity.
    I report all potential Treasure items as per the Act, so you will see it stated in my post.
    We only get about 3 cases a year, but had 5 last year.

    I know of one area that are without a Flo even, the whole process seems to have been mired down to a snails crawl over this past year.
