Here's a lovely recent shore find. Tealby series. Are there any further details that can be provided? Hoping for a little more light on it, even though its not fully there!

Many thanks. Scale is in Imperial, don't have mm scale.

Wow was that a beach find?
Very nice find :thumbsup:
We have had the odd roman coin from our local beach, but only really near the downs themselves

ON A BEACH? :shock:

I’m amazed when coins of that age are found on beaches. How on earth do they survive? Great find :thumbsup:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

They're not whenever I've been. I just get bullets and other junk. If coins like that were on the cards I'd go to the seaside more often!

Lovely find :thumbsup:

Some of them are from cliff falls.
No doubt others may wash up from boat wrecks after a storm
Know of a place where Romans were washed down from a cliff top field in the past.
Makes a change from the heavily corroded iron core coinage we now use.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

This coin came from a recently exposed old land surface. I have had a couple of other hammered and a decent Siliqua over the years.
