just got in and its almost dark so i'll take a photo tomorrow when it is light....but anyway....Rather a nice gold hammered and one I haven't had before. Franc a Pied of Charles V and 1365 ish....It will need a straighten but it hasn't been clipped so really pleased. I'd had quite a long walk around and was a bit cheesed off as all I'd found was junk but i was only 200 yards from home when it popped up and it was the last signal I dug. (It was going to be anyway as my headphones were warbling at me to say the charge was almost run out.)
Celebratory bottle of wine is now on hand.

Have you been over that area before?......a good point for people who say their fields are done

Look forward to the photos, now you go enjoy that wine

Probably 100 times Bruce. I found a mouton d'or in it last season, and it has also produced an electrum stater 4 years ago. Plus a nice ampulla etc etc. But if it wasn't so close to the house i would never have covered it so much because I walk over it to get to most of my other fields. :thumbsup:

Bet that lifted the "cheesed off" mood, Jan :thumbsup:

Being an impatient sort, I just looked the coin up and instead of the expected coin with a foot on it, it's actually rather fetching.

Beautiful coin :D

Another stunning find Jan...You obviously live in an area that was quite wealthy in the past...It makes you wonder how these people felt when they realised they'd lost such coins...

A really beautiful coin!! It almost looks as if I’d been poked in the middle by something as it’s in a bowl shape. I hope I find one someday. ☺️
Live long and prospect
