2nd Charles 1st for my last coin of 2018

Post by bleepybloopy » Wed Jan 02, 2019 11:23 am

Hi all and Happy New Year,

My last trip out in Hampshire yielded typically knackered Georgian half penny and a Roman grot but also this little beauty.

It's not spectacular but is a hammered, albeit not silver or gold.

Charles 1st Rose Farthing in amazingly good condition considering the fertiliser in our soil on the farm. Needless to say there will be very little cleaning attempted.

Found with "Goldie" my AT Pro at about 3" in pasture after giving a signal in the mid-fifties I think.

Good luck for the year ahead.

Nice find ::g I have found quite a few on fields that have also yielded lots of buttons, so I think these small coins may have ended up in deep pockets and got chucked out into the fields as part of the "shoddy" then after the fabric disintegrates, the coin appears, Liam :;@
