  1. 2020 in Review Roman, Medieval and Much More

    I had a great 2020 and despite all the lockdowns I still managed a few good outings. With this being my first full year in Europe I am very happy with the quality of some of my finds. I'm still kinda stuck in the post-medieval era for the most part but a few lucky digs have been able to push...
  2. Another Mystery Roman

    I got lucky again and found another Roman bronze coin in my favorite field in western mainland Europe. It measures around 23-24mm in diameter. The small bit of lettering on the obverse reads NVSP(possibly an E after that) The small bit of lettering on the reverse reads (possibly AH)AT The style...
  3. Mystery Roman Bronze Coin

    I found this Roman coin in Western mainland Europe. It is around 25 millimeters in diameter and made of bronze. I can see the outline of a bust on the obverse but I have no idea who it might be. The reverse is blank. My guess is 2nd century but that's a guess. Any help is appreciated...
  4. Are These Safe to Store Coins

    I found these coin display cases online where you can suspend your coin in between 2 thin sheets of plastic. I think they look great but have heard a few people complain about storing your coins in plastic, specifically plastic with PVC. I was wondering whats your thoughts on the safety of...
  5. First Roman Silver

    Had a major bucket lister on the weekend. I dug my first Roman silver coin.:hello2: Digging a denarius of any kind has been on the top of my bucket list ever since I moved to Europe over a year ago and I always thought I would never find one given my current luck but even a blind squirrel...
  6. Decorative Object?

    I found this object in a field in western mainland Europe. The area I found it in has stuff dating from Roman times-modern times with everything in between. If I had to guess I would say it's a late 17th-century doorhandle but that's a guess. It's made of copper or some sort of copper alloy. Any...

    I found this coin in western mainland Europe. I know it's a Roman Denarius but I don't know the emperor. I think it might be Elagabalus but I don't know for sure. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
  8. Ornate Thing

    I found this item in Western mainland Europe at a site that produces stuff from the medieval era up to the 21st century but most of the finds are concentrated in the 19th century. It is made out of some sort of copper alloy. I figure it dates to the late 19th century but I have no clue what it...
  9. German Token?

    I found what I believe to be a token (could be a coin but I doubt it) in Luxembourg. The area I found it in dates back to medieval times but has everything in between. It measures around 2 cm in diameter. I think it might be german given how similar the 20 looks compared to other german coins...
  10. ✅ SOLVED Medieval Buckle?

    I found this buckle piece in a field in Luxembourg. Most of the stuff I've found in this area dates to around 1650-1960. Its made of either copper or bronze. I believe it to be medieval, more specifically from 1250-1350 according to this website...

  12. Mystery Chinese Coin

    I found what looks to be a Chinese coin all the way in a field in Luxembourg. It appears to be made of Bronze. I'm assuming it dates to somewhere in the 1800s judging from other Chinese coins I've seen online but I can't be certain. Any help is Appreciated. Thanks!
  13. Possible Fossilised Tooth

    I found this tooth at around 6 inches deep in the middle of the woods (pretty much rules out it being a modern toy) in Southern Luxembourg. It was next to an old creek but nothing else was found at that site other than this. The biggest animals over here are foxes and wild boar and it cant be...

    I found this item in Luxembourg (Western Europe) in an area with stuff from the 1600s-modern times. The top part of bronze or some sort of copper alloy with the bottom part being iron and is very heavy for its size. I have no clue as to what it might be so any help is much appreciated. Thanks!
  15. Awesome 1800s Silver Medallion

    I recently came across a post on Facebook talking about a lost ring. It gave the location of where it was most likely lost so naturally, I went over to go look for it. Sadly the park was way too crowded to hunt in at the moment so I decided to hop on over to the nearest piece of grass I could...
  16. Possible WW2 Medal

    I found this item in a park in Australia that used to be a training camp for WW2 soldiers. I have found a lot of stuff relating to WW2 in the area from bullets to buttons to badges. It may not be military but given where I found it I figure it could be. Its made of lead with what I think is...
  17. I Think it's a Fossil?

    I found this item 8 inches deep in a metal detecting hole in a park in Luxembourg. I find tons of Devil's toenail fossils (Gryphaea) in the area which are an extinct oyster species but I've never found anything different. Like I said I'm more of a metal detecting guy and know next to nothing...

  19. First Gold in a While

    I started the day in the woods along a few old trails. Didn't really have a plan as both other spots I wanted to go to were either overgrown or crowded with people but through my aimless wandering I did manage to luck out with a nice 8ct gold ring. Other than that I found a few euros in...
  20. Possible Military Button

    I found this button in a field in Luxembourg (Western Europe.) It is made out of copper or some sort of copper alloy. It is very worn and corroded but I can make out what I believe is an eagle on the button. It reminds me of early US military buttons but could also be a French Napoleonic...
