    Congrats on the find DDF! That's gotta be a banner find! (Though I hope Jeff In PA or one of the other moderators can help you change the title of the post...I didn't look at it initially due to the title.)

    personally I'd like to slap whoever sent that in to urban Dictionary & Slap them for printing it

    I imagine if I tell them Car means Door they will print it.
    Jeff in Pa, thanks for looking. It has all sunk in now, it appears this is a 500 year old, hammered British coin. Could you please help me change the title of my post to indicate this? Rather than “silver taco”?... I thank you in advance for your assistance. Respectfully, Ddf Scott.

    Thanks, Blak Bart...I very much appreciate the nod... yep, found in a very unassuming cornfield in Ohio. The next day I pulled a beauty of an 1834 Capped Bust half dime, approximately 150 yards from where I pulled this hammered. It shouldn’t have been there, no noise, no iron... whisper quiet. Was simply walking back to the truck as we’re investigating every part of this permission. I’ve stopped trying to figure out how/why/when this hammered coin from England arrived in my cornfield, like Crusader says, just be happy that I found it. Thx for looking, Ddf. P.S., luv that fish, btw.

    Thank Brian, I do very much appreciate the kind words. I’ve reached out, we’ll see how it works out. At the time I posted this coin, I had not realized it’s significance until Crusader stepped in. Wow... for someone who’s not found a coin from the 1700’s... I blew right past that. Thanks again, Ddf.

    I have 1 theory. It's not that worn, so it wasn't in circulation for much more than 50 years.
    So it's unlikely to have stayed in circulation until it was brought over to the States.
    Which suggests to me it was either put away for a long time or maybe more likely it was lost 50 years after minting. Found by a detectorist & brought over to the US or purchased from a detectorist or old coin collection.

    For... i thought this was the only real chance of finding one here. heh

    Congrats on the hammered silver, it's just one of those finds where so many queries come up on how it rested in a field in your parts. The main thing is it's all yours now-big congrats.
    I've seen some pretty bent/cracked/torn silvers and golds (before/after pictures) that have been annealed, straightened, amazing what a good jeweller can do-that knows what they're doing.

    Probably one of the more probable scenarios I’ve heard or thought about. Cru, this is going out on a limb here, and involves additional research on my part. BUT... many years ago on Halloween (my wife reminded me of this), we took a midnight “haunted” tour of one of the oldest cemeteries in our area. In one of the furthest corners in one of the oldest parts of said cemetery, our guides told us of English buried here, of possible royal heritage... name “Tudor”, and actually lived on the road where this cornfield is... Would it be silly to think there might actually be a connection? I need to research and maybe find more out about these people. Thank you for the insight. Ddf. P.S., nothing else found here would indicate or point to wealthy or relatives of the Throne were at this site.

    Hi Toasted, thanks very much for the input, very much appreciated! This thing was only pulled from the dirt because it was a repeatable signal. 39-40 on my At Max, bouncy, scratchy... and that’s what we were doing, as long it didn’t grunt and was repeatable. Next we are going to go after the iron signals, and there is a lot, just in case something is laying on edge or being masked. Thx again, Ddf.

    Thx, hunk-a-lead... was my pleasure lol. Was a bummer that I didn’t get to scratch something off of my bucket list, as 16th century hammered silver wasn’t really on there. Ddf.

    Thx AARC, looking back, I guess it would be more probable finding one of these in a Coinstar than in an Ohio cornfield lol.. Surely a surprise for me... now every time I go out I have to try to top THAT! The absolutely stunning Capped half dime I found the next day kinda paled in comparison lol... Thx for looking, Ddf.
