I took the chance to detect a field i wasn't on for 8 years now. Had only 2 hrs to save some romans. I hoped for a Silver there but only bronzes found their way in the pouch today. Happy about a very fine example and one of the smallest roman coins minted. I don't say it was a zillion miles deep and i have the best detector as everyone knows the capabilities of the Deus. It was just under the surface and came in loud and clear. 0.4 Grams of patina...
I didn't stated my wish for silver precisely so no Roman Silver but a three inch diameter, 54 Gram massive silver bagde blew my ears off.
To complete this weird day a tiny fork found it's way under the coil also. Made from aluminum and stamped with G&T. My guess is dollhouse equipment. :dontknow:

Sometimes it looks easy. You know it isn't. But i know what you say. Living in Europe usually means usually at least 2000years of human occupation. Most areas way longer...
I was thinking about that fork too. Stamped by maker on the visible side make no sense on a play fork. More if it was a giveaway?
2000 years of trash to navigate through as well, nice recoveries!
