Out for a couple of hours this evening on a old permission haven’t been there for a while but fancied a change of scenery had a few silvers from there before so was hopeful and second hole George 4th shilling never had any silver George 4th before so well happy and it’s a shame that the barrel tap is broken as it would have been nice to put with the keys I have still going to keep it until I find a complete one thanks for looking
Cheers paint :thumbsup:

I think that's the 1st George IV coin that I've seen. A very nice find. :thumbsup:

I am rather jealous of the silver too. Don't think I've ever found a George IV coin either :Thinking: Very nice :thumbsup:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

All silver is good. I just checked out of interest and I have just one George IV shilling in near identical state of wear and a halfpenny. I guess that there were not too many George IV or William IV coins minted compared to others? I'd also like to find a complete barrel tap instead of just parts, but a barrel tap key was most welcome last time out. Well at least you know that there's still stuff there. :thumbsup: :Party:

I've got one, similar to the one in the image above, and complete (but of course seized up). I'd like to sink it into one of the walls and use it to hang something off but I've yet to run that one past The Management.

Very nice find, very few and far between as said, I was lucky to find one a few years ago.

Yet to find any milled Silver myself, so well done on yours.
Have been lucky enough to find 2 barrel taps, one of which is alongside the keyboard as I type this.
They are a great bit of Social History.
A great day out, I would say.
Cheers, :thumbsup:
Dave.

When I first started detecting in very early 70`s I used to go detecting and without any exageration ,it was very common to come back with each trouser pocket filled to the max with Coppers and Silver milled galore. I didn`t get much luck in the early days with hammered till I got my first "motion" detector , but Milled silver were very common finds . I can remember I had three " Gothic Florins " one day off the same field .
