Little hammy

Post by Mac91 » Tue Jul 10, 2018 11:58 pm

Hi all,

Out a couple of hours today and bagged my first hammered in quite a while. Heart sank though when it broke as I lifted it!!

Apologies, lighting and pics are as good as I can get tonight, but does anyone have any suggestions on what it is? Not often I find them so my ID skills aren't brilliant. I thought maybe a Henry but unsure which..

20mm approx in diameter, and found with CTX at about 4 to 5 inches

Thanks in advance

Well done. They are so fragile. Mine that end up like that get cellotaped and cut around. It’s gutty but atleast you finding hammered there, they may well be more.
2018 hammies. = 97 (including quarters, halves and broken) not including the Saxon
Saxon = 4
Celtic. = 1
Silver denarius = 1
Gold ring. = 0
