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…!

A little update for this beautiful coin… submitted it for the Readers Find section of the Treasure Hunting magazine…. And it made it in! A very proud moment when I saw it in amongst everyone else’s 😍 xx View attachment 2053876
Congratulations on getting a write-up on this amazing silver blossom!
( I totally missed your post up on the update)
So a tad late to the party-though I think this is still one of the best smashing finds posted up this year on this site.

That's really cool when folks are offering up to buy it.
There's many that $$$ trumps the keeping it.

The old saying comes to play "I had & I have"
The keeping and fondling it for many moons to came keeps the real passions burning.
