Joe, some nice finds there. That eagle is cool, did you have any thoughts on age?
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Two silvers is a reasonable result especially when one is a hammy. :thumbsup:

Aww I thought you’d found the Eagle if the 9th :lol:
Joking aside it does look kinda like the Roman Eagle with clipped wings. And another 2 silvers. Not bad at all, well found :thumbsup:

Don't know mate, it does have a hole on the base as if it screws onto something. I found the main body first and about 6ft away I then found the broken wing. thought it was a griffin at first but now you mention it it does look more like an eagle. nice find though. :thumbsup:
