Today dawned bright and sunny after yesterday‘s rain so we set off eagerly across the grass fields… started Finding bullets, so changed direction back towards the truck, I got a poor signal and we were in 2 minds whether we dug, but as the digging was easy I did, about 8 inches down up popped my second ever hammered! Oh my days! Himself nearly had a tantrum as he had only dug 1 musket ball all morning (other than the rifle bullets). After lunch we decided to go for a walk round the field and come back thru the other grass field where we found the old horse shoe. The field gave us a couple of buttons and 2 toasted coins. We crossed back into the other grass field and found more musket balls, then I got a great signal, and oh my, we had no idea what this coin was but it was silver 😆. The perfect end to an awesome day.

Not sure on the I’d of the hammered… but the silver coin is a Philip & Mary 1554 undated shilling…!

That is one beautiful coin! What is that item with the face?
If I ever come back to to the motherland I'm looking you guys up. Mind how you go (we love Endeavour).

Wow!
I don't think folks realize that silver is worth some serious money.
Congratulations blossom on the Shilling and the hammered.
What a beautiful crisp silver
I hope it goes up on the Banner as it's deserves to be.
Your's has better details than this one.

Blossom, Congrat's to you on one Fantastic hunt with some Banner Saves. We don't find relics or coins this old in America of course. Well Done. Also, Condolences to you and your fellow countrymen and women in the loss of your Queen from Georgia.

Mackerel, Blossom! I knew you would find something banner worthy! I know you may be a little humble about it, but it is the way it works on this site! Words escape me! That coin is worth big $$$$ (Thanks, PepperJ for the link!)!!!!!
Uh, himself is going to be a little green now. :happysmiley:
