Found the hammy today on constant pasture approx 2 inch in sandy loamy ground and 8 on the nox
The silver fragments were approx 1 ft apart and 7 or so inch deep. Initially assumed a ring. But it is quite strong and seems to be in segments. But may well be just a ring.
Would appreciate any id :thumbsup:

Great finds Saki. Double silver is s great result by anyone’s standards and that coin is a nice one. No idea on the silver strip’s original use but it’s a nice design :thumbsup:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Thanks Cath.
The Silver strips have me flummoxed.
I actually think it seems it is deliberately designed to section easier. Like a type of hack silver

Nice to see some silver making an appearance again, well found :clapping:
No idea on the silver strips, but looks to have marks scribed in to make forming a ring easier :thumbsup:

In my book a hammy is always to be applauded, well found, well saved. :thumbsup:
