Well as you know any medieval silver and I’m beaming! Please can I gave help with the IDs :Luv Ya:

Anyways they both look a bit weird to me. The cut half has hardly any writing so I’m projecting it isn’t a Henry III or a John just because I want it to be older. Well I can hope!

The second is a penny - presumably an Edward and defo a London mint one.

For a field that hasn’t given up many coins and nothing older than Tudor till this week I’m rather chuffed. The bad news is it was seeded today so the continuation of the path into the adjoining field will have to wait till harvest. Something to look forward to!

Will you give over? I've not had a sniff of anything decent for the past three trips out and you continue your roll :lol:

Not sure abut the short cross but I'll plump for Edward I class 10 for t'other.

Nicely done, milady :thumbsup:

EDIT: scrap the group 10 - but sticking with Ed I

Henry II is blooming marvellous. Thank you Allectus 8-)

EDIT: meant to say thank you to John and Easylife too, who got in first with correct answers :oops:

Don’t worry John I have a bit of a roll then it’ll go dead again. All my pasture is being unco-operative right now and I’m back to that till the 29th where I hope a new field on a new permission that had been ploughed but couldn’t visit cause of this stupid virus hasn’t been seeded :?

The cut half was only 3-4 cm down and the penny nearly blew my ears off at 4-5cm. It was a beautifully rolled flat field though and the ground has the perfect moisture right now so I think I’d have heard it easily on this field at a good depth.

That’s cause you spend too much time looking for those Roman drossy things. Have you seriously not found any older than Tudor? Not that there’s anything wrong with Tudor but I’m surprised :shock:

I tend to discriminate hammered silver out and tune into bronze Roman :thumbsup: no in regards to hammies I've never found earlier than Tudor.

My first ever hammy was a James I and is still the worst condition one I have after finding about another 30 more, but they are all just few and far between casual losses.

They may be Hammereds, Cath but you should always congratulate someone on their good fortune.
Therefore i say, Well done Cath. :thumbsup:
Hopefully that`s built me some good luck for Monday.
Best Wishes, :Luv Ya:
