Worth the 10 month lay-off??

Post by oldartefact » Sun Nov 10, 2019 8:00 pm

Had a bit of a rest from tecting .. so thought I would give myself a birthday present with a trip out..
plenty of time to do some old-maps research and found a track to the middle of nowhere, so with all other options already done.. I took a punt on the location "nowhere" ... here is my second signal.. I'll fill you all in on the other bleeps, as soon as I've spoken to the land owner.
Think that this one is an Eddy half-groat??.. beat up, but with some nice definition. its 22mm diameter, and came up a respectable 80 on deus fast.
Many thanks for the upload advice Bruce.

Nice job olde , I have had some halfgroats in that condition but not quite as complete and they also have stunning detail on them[might stick them up for id at some point] , it seems to me[just my opinion] this is a peculiar thing on half groats of that period , strange , but nice ,well found mate, :D ::g ::g ::g ::g

Well done matey. Really nice to see you getting out again and adds a bit of determination for me next year. I've never found a hammered half groat (had a period when I couldn't stop finding sixpences), so hopefully just a matter of time. The chip isn't a biggie. My view with coins is whether it is damaged chipped, clipped or a fragment, if it is identifiable it is just part of the coins history and the find is a good one.
