Had a day out today on a pasture permission I acquired this year. So far it has produced the usual coppers of varying ages a couple of Roman grots but nothing really to write home about.

Today I tried an area of rigg and furrow which is very well defined but which seem to run off at all different angles.Rigg and furrow is rarely productive for me as a general rule, unless ploughed out at some stage., don't know if stuff is just too deep or what.

The area I worked started producing old white lead which I always think is a good sign ,then a decorated spindle whorl ,so I knew I was in the right area so stuck at it.

Perseverance paid off as two hammered Edward pennies turned up.
I have had a very dry spell with silver hammereds (the last one being in February ) so these two were very welcome.

I would be very grateful if one of you coin wizards could help me out with an ID on them ,the only thing I can be sure of is one is a Canterbury mint ( he says with fingers crossed)

Thanks in advance,
Reiver.

Bury mint ones are rare aren't they?

Two nice coins, the second one is a belter!
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

I don't know if the Bury mints are not so common, must look into it.
That's the better coin too.
Thanks for the heads up. :thumbsup:

Love the look and detail of the second coin there Reiver
Well found :thumbsup:

I'm similar to you and never seem to find much on Ridge and furrow areas, of which we have quite a bit of round these ear parts :ugeek:
