Managed three and a half hours today and managed to get these two lovelies. The first is I think an Ecclesiastical Edward penny possibly from the York mint and the other is I believe a silver Denarius of Vespasian dated to sometime between AD 69 - 79 and shows Concordia seated on the reverse. This coin gave a tiny little double whisper and was found at about 9" deep.
Both coins were found with the Equinox 800 using G.Heritages killer programme (although I haven't killed anyone yet whilst using it)!
If anyone can offer a definitive I.D. I would be very grateful. Thank you in advance and G.L and H.H. to all. ::g

Regards,

M-m.
