Toasted coins?

Post by MT83 »

Hi all, have only been detecting for a short while, I haven't really found much of note yet but nether the less this has not deterred me from enjoying the hobby
I am desperate to find a nice coin but so far no joy, I have however found these 'coins', all in the same field, I can only assume they are coins because they are in really bad condition and I cannot see anything on them at all.
I have tried some DIY electrolysis because I thought I've nothing to lose which has cleaned them up but still no detail.
'Coin' number 3 isn't too badly pitted or anything but is completely smooth.
If they are coins why are they so toasted, is it because they are a couple hundred years old or is it to do with soil conditions, i.e.acidity maybe? It's so disappointing to see this coin in the ground and then pull it out only for it to be rough!!
Any advice will be greatly recieved!
