More Silver, Some Gold and Coins Everywhere plus a Hammy Bonus

Post by fred »

The recent weather has blown some of the beaches around a bit. Yesterday I was due to attend a JoanAllenEvents dig nearby but I got up at the crack of dawn to put in an hour and a half on the beach. I found loads of coins and other bits plus the silver coins and part of a 15ct gold ring shown in the first photo.

At 8.15 I set off for the dig expecting to be just a little late for the 8.30 start. After nearly an hour spent exploring Romney Marsh, an area that I thought that I knew well, I finally stumbled onto the dig. Along the way I had seen loads of herons and other wildlife including my first ever Great White Egret (which I initially though was an oversized albino heron :D ). Anyway to my horror the dig was on a piece of land that I knew to have been well detected in the past and which I hadn't previously had much luck on. Had I known I probably wouldn't have gone and I would have missed out on a couple of reasonable enough hammies, several other reasonable finds and some great company.
This morning I again got up with the dawn and detected for about six hours minus a bit of time spent sheltering from showers. Once again I found plenty of coins and bits (photo 2) including the silver, a small 9ct gold ring and a silver Salvation Army badge, all shown in the third photo. I found just under 200 coins and the total in spending money was £46.39p. The greatest surprise was a Charles II farthing in almost reasonable nick. All told not a bad weekend at all. ::g
