Morning All,
Sorry to have been a bit quiet recently; hope you are all well!
I have been scratching round the West Country for a few weeks ( great fun HARD work!) but now back on my own patch where I found a nice wee Roman ( one of the girls) - sorry for lack of scale it is a very small one! And a hammered penny.... Any help on either or both would be much appreciated!
I am hopefully getting a video out later and will of course give the Hub a push!
Many thanks in advance and all the B,
Alexander

I's have a guess at Theodora, but wait to be corrected by the Roman :thumbsup:

My guess for the hammered would be Edward 1st Cantrrbury mint Class 10cf3a Spink 1412 - but I'll probably be miles away - I await to be corrected by Allectus :thumbsup:

Always good to see another Roman unearthed , Alex.
Did find a couple of Theodoras but not in as good a condition as yours and also with different reverses, which were heavily worn.
Also well done on your Hammered.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

Good call on the Hammered! Well, Allectus thinks you got it right and who would argue??!! Hope all well! As I said to shaggy, we were one wife out on the Roman which explains why I couldn't find that reverse on a Theodora coin....( At least!) Hope all well!
