Some lovely coins here and some real rarities too..

I have never found anything on a par of these, just a few hammy's and a bit of Georgian and later silver.

Despite having found the hammy's, the coin that always makes me smile is a George lll sixpence.

Despite it being quite dark, the surface has a lovely luster to it, and I think the design itself is very elegant and much more pleasing to the eye than some of the Victorian silver...

I have attached a couple of pics but they simply don’t do it justice compared to what it’s like in the had...

Thank the detecting gods for Pete. There are way too many roman coins on this thread and I’m feeling a little queasy if I’m honest :lol:

To even the odds I’m adding two hammered coins - a lovely Henry VII groat and my first full short-cross penny and still my oldest hammered coin - a John penny.

Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
