    Amazing Weekend Stunning Silver Finds

    Hi all....did a double search this weekend and it turned out to be a remarkable few days, so straight in with the finds, Fist signal of the day and out pops one of the best hammered I have ever found, Edward1 1272-1307 Archbishop Mint York, reverce quarter foil in centre, not two yards away and out comes another one Edward1 Bury Mint, reverce Villa sci Edmundi, not a bad 15 minutes. Things went quite for a while and then the next find a nice Horse Harness Pendant dating to the Medieval period with traces of guilding still visible, moving over to the Villa area there was a mix of Roman Bronze coins in the usuall condition before a nice Roman Silver of Septimus Severus AD193-211 popped out, Laureate Head Right/ reverce two captives seated at foot of trophy and that was Saturday. Sunday saw us back on the same field after lunch the first find turned out to be a brocken Silver Roman ring proberbly for a child, a cut hammered of King:John 1199-1216 then another Roman Silver of Faustina Jr, Draped bust right/ reverce Pudicita Standing Left Tugging at her Toga, then a broken Silver Denarius not quite sure who of will try to get more info, the Roman finds kept coming a broken head stud brooch and part of a horse fitting, an amazing weekend

    0 silver for me at the weekend with about 10 hours searching. :P

    Thats detecting for you.

    I said you wouldn't need luck on that field

    I just wish we could find one like that on our new land, probably takes us 2 years.

    Why aren't you doing it during the week?

    Well done! As far as the broken Roman coin goes, since you have excellent photos of your finds,
    I read "Geta" with the Victoria reverse. A lot of history there. The Severans spent a lot of time in Britain attempting to tame the land for Rome.

    Great finds!
    Look at how long the neck is on that guy on the last coin.
    Kind of looks like E.T.
    But still some great finds.

    That must be one of the best hammered coins i have ever seen....
    Det vi vet er så uendelig lite mot det som har hendt. Arkeologen er som den som går langs en strand og finner småtterier, skyllet i land fra et forsvunnet skib. Men selve skibet som gikk i dypet med menneskene får han aldri se.
