It's not time to walk away from this field & we were pleased to see they had recently graded it down & make it nice & flat for us, at first we thought it was drilled, but it wasn't.
We continued the grid pattern for close to 4 hours & also tried the next door field where Cru'dad got his 4th hammered of the day!

Four silvers is an outstanding day! I bet You didn't stumble over Venetian Silver too often. Date matches to the half Groat....

I bet You didn't stumble over Venetian Silver too often.
Not often, but not rare either, had 1 a couple of weeks back.
The Venetian merchants/bankers lent huge amounts of money & these were nicknamed 'Galley Halfpennies', as the circulated in England as halfpennies & because each year several galleys came over full of them. So they are one of the more common foreign coins we find.

Tesoro compadre, which can find needles, but looking for something with a bigger coil/detects deeper, waterproof salt/fresh user friendly.
