I took the pup out for a few hours detecting today, she seemed to enjoy herself. :D

Whilst heading back towards the car, I picked up a nice and shallow 15 signal on the Equinox. It was only 1" deep in very stony soil and I was expecting to dig another button. :roll:

Thanks for taking a look. :thumbsup:

No idea cause they are Roman and I don't like Roman coins, but I do admire their condition. Very nice indeed :D

Someone, who likes Roman stuff, will I'm sure help with an ID.
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

You are getting some cracking details on your coin finds Andy, nice to see as i usually have blank ones or ones with just a glimpse of something

Unlike my friend above i love Roman things, but am useless at ID stuff, so will have to wait for the more knowledgable amongst us :lol:

Thanks all. :thumbsup:

Cath, you don't like Romans? . . . . . . what the . . . . something to do with Lancashire right? :D

the-roman, sorry for the confusion, it's the same coin from different angles. I was trying to catch the light. What's a Valens please (and thanks for the ID). :thumbsup: Is it 4thc C?

Nice find.
I don’t understand these weird people that don’t like Roman coins - coins that can be nearly 2000 years old...... take no notice of the haters :lol: :lol:

Nice coin Andy, is this from the same area as the broach and those other coins?

I actually thought it was two different coins until you said...just shows the importance of getting the light right when photographing finds.....
