Had a few hours digging on a jobsite of mine in Notts today, lovely few hours, very interesting site in the center of a village right next to an originally Saxon/Norman church, the sort of site to really get the juices flowing. All the topsoil had been scraped off, the field landscaped and the soil reaplyed, wonderful.

Signals were thick and fast, lots of coke and lots of hotrock coming through on the hf coil but absolutely brilliant fun on a 54khz program I use.

So nearly all finds were left with the owner of the place but I took 2 with me, one was the Nottingham token which is a lovely big chunk of copper, the other I am not sure about, its actually thinner than a Nurenburg jetton. Looks like some Islamic coin, Moroccan, Indian, something like that ?
I dont know, so wil put the question out there,,,,,,What is this coin/token please, anybody know ????

Cheers,
aoo :thumbsup:

I dont know about the hole Jan, I find lots of jettons and tokens that are holed, I had the coins soldered onto my BD rig so when I jiggle my bits in the clubs I dont loose any :lol: :lol: :thumbsup:

Yeah Phil...I know lots of jettony things have holes...I just meant that the hole fitted the belly dancer token ID as well.
We need to see you 'getting jiggy with it.' :lol:
I find lots of small hammered coppers about that size. Late 16th through to late 17th century usually. Most of em look a helluva lot older than that when i get them up....on my ground anyway. If i get one in 30 with anything legible remaining at all I am doing well.
