    Awesome finds!!! The two headed creature is probably a Wyvern from Austria. I think they call them Beast coins.

    Nice finds Vince. The first one looks like a religious pendant with some serious old age to it, but then again all your coin posts are of some very old ones as well. We all do like the rest of the story though. If you found these with your detector, tell us a little bit about the digs, many of us like the story as well as the finds. Great finds no matter.

    Yesterday i drown to a place where I wanted to explore but because of the traffic I changed place. I had my dog with me. I begin with a lot of ferrous signals and already having a headache but after a while the bullets began jumping from the ground one after one.
    For each bullet I was thinking if it killed somebody. Poor soldiers. For what did they fight for! Then, after five minutes , I had a 75-81. Was a small coin. Cleaned one side and I saw a cross. A new coin for me. I was very exited but I decided to clean and watch it at home. After other 10 minutes two others and was time to get home, after 2 hours that past like 10 min
    Today went to the same place to see if I missed anything and again the bullets began coming up. Each of them has a story. Each of them lived for a moment, travelled for a second, in different directions but with the same purpose. And now, they all lay down there, quietly.
    Again a 75-81 and I thought: here we are again, but it was another kind of coin. It looked mysterious. Bullets and another coin again. The best is when you find something and try to imagine for a moment what happened, who lost that?
    That was my day guys.
    Thanks for reading

    Super finds! The first may match the devotional medal described here:

    https://books.google.com/books?id=i0...IVjF4eCh2zRgvZ

    The second is I think a Milano Quattrino like one shown here:

    Carlo VI

    The third I'm not completely sure about but it may be a Milano Trillina like this one:

    pcc1263_1) MILANO FILIPPO IV DI SPAGNA 1621-1665 Trillina 2° tipo Rara | eBay

    I think the fourth is a Milano Trillina like this:

    pcc704_4) Milano Trillina Carlo V S.Ambrogio Aquila Bicipite | eBay

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

    As to the second coin, I know there were at least three different varieties of that 'quatrino'. The first was issued during the reign of Carl II (1665-1700), the second during the 'reign' of archduke Carl, pretender to the crown of Spain, as Carl III (1702-1711); and the third by Carl IV Imperator (1711-1740). The varieties can be ID-ed by their legends ( if readable). The first coin would read: CAROLVS II REX H 1707; the second: CAROLVS III REX HISP 1707; and the third: CAROLVS VI IMP ET H R 1721.

    Thanks a lot Bramblefind. That's a great job. For sure you did more than me.
    Next time I hope I find some older coins, to make it more difficult for you . Thanks again.

    vince76,
    Be careful with the cleaning, there may not be enough left on the coin to ID its full attribution.
