    Due to its size & how worn it is, I would say its a Dupondius or As of about 1-2nd century. However the head looks kind of Republic (ie. 1st Century BC). To worn for me to indentify without spending hours on it. Try the others they are easier.

    in the 3rd pic, the 2nd & 6th object are just trade tokens & the 5th is a George III penny, often called "a bullhead" penny.

    Re: unknown coins

    the one I'm interested in is the 1st coin in the 3rd pic, looks like silver to me & i think it's older than Roman, possibly Celtic.I can't see one side properly but if it looks like a stylised horse this makes it more likely.

    One question...........how on earth were you allowed to detect round stonehenge?

    Re: unknown coins

    We stayed in a small cottage not far from there. the weather was rainy with gale force winds no tours for that week the man we stayed with said he had been out there with detectors and found hundrds of coins,daggers,swords and relics he told us also that you can hear a vehicle before you see them so just lay your detector on the ground until they pass. I beleive there were 2 cars that day,although we never detected inside stonehedge just around it the field behind belonged to the royal airforce or whatever you call'em and had been used for a bombing for several years prior.lots of big craters and misc. tank bodies strewn thoughout the field.

    Not a very good indication of rarity as before 1966 the detectorist weren't about. Now there are tons of them. I have found at least 6 of this type. Its one of the more common type, however its in top condition.
