First hammered and then a second one

Post by Runnerflash » Sat Nov 16, 2019 3:16 pm

My friend greatchi has kindly allowed me access to his permission - a very generous man!

Today we detected together and I found my first hammered coin after 11 months of detecting, an hour later a second coin was found.
Equinox 600 used on Field 1 setting at multi frequency.
A wet field with clods of mud on your boots.

We think the first one is a William perhaps III penny.
Found at 5 " with a indicator of 13.

.

We think the second one is a Henry VIII half groat
Found at 6 " with a indicator of 15.

I would be grateful for a more accurate identification please.

regards

Fred
