“Getting Hammered “

Post by DWtheKAT » Fri Jun 08, 2018 11:41 am

This week I attended a commercial dig on the Hampshire/Wiltshire border, lovely location with two large fields of grassland.
The grass was a bit on the long side and the ground was dry and hard with masses of flint so conditions were a challenge.
Using the Deus with two changes to the standard fast programme, frequency 12 and sensitivity at 92.
A few bits were appearing for others, couple of Roman denari,a few hammereds and by lunchtime my best was a buckle, so changed fields after lunch and things improved, few buttons, watch wonder, 1950 sixpence, large penny size copper (possibly Dutch?),lead seal and an Elizabeth Arden mascara for the farmhand who cares about his appearance,then two nice hammered silver within a foot of each other, both about three inches down lying on hard pack gravel and flint, stayed in this area for the remainder of the day but that was it ..
Now I don’t find many hammered coins so two within ten minutes makes it a landmark day for me.
Any help with id would be appreciated and thanks for looking.ppp
