So after a busy couple of weekends today we at last went detecting!!

Spent the morning in the “quiet” field and found a hammered and another silver coin(?) so was super happy with that. After lunch i decided to go to his field where he has found countless Romans, just to annoy him! Found a few bits so decided to head back to the truck as it started raining.. and the wind was hitting 40mph 😬…. when bang a super crisp 72 sounded in my ears.. dug nd saw the gleam of gold.. automatically assumed button.. but oh my days.. there sat a gorgeous little GOLD STATER needless to say Himself was furious that I had found it in his field… but I did get a hug and grudgingly he said “well done” 😂😂😂 ….! I havent found the same one online yet..… but wanted to show you all!!



We also found a gorgeous fibula, a dress hook, half a spur, a patterned piece, this weird lumpy bit, second pic to show you the top, little bits, chunky lead weight, tiny buckle and bit, spoon handle and modern bit, small shot, clog strap and strange lead bit, a silver tab (did the tin foil test) buttons galore, a hammered, and finally a silver disk 🤔(again passed the tin foil test) xx

What a truely awesome day we have had.. and so pleased to be able to add a gold to my already unbelievable stats this year 😎 xx

Interesting! I've never even heard of a hemistater. just full and quarter staters. How rare is that coin? Have they attached a value to it?

If you google Hermistater.. it shows similar designs which is interesting… , but obvs not the same. I dont think its super valuable maybe £1,000… 🤔 xx

I think you'd be under selling yourself at that price blossom.
One of a kind would be classified as a rare
Most would love something that no one else had in a collection.

Then again you have it under the pillow and can touch it and they can't. :headbang:
That alone you can't put a price on it.

After many hours of painstaking extreme research...

I have concluded along with according to the many Google results...

your coin is different because...

It was made for use in Roman Gum Ball machines.

:P
