x3 silver & end to my hammy drought (help with version plse)
« on: September 26, 2016, 04:43:17 PM »
Hello again,
well after a disappointing search yesterday, I took the pooch and my Euroace/Tornado super duo out for an hour this morning on the same field that I found the (possible) gold posy ring last week. Not many signals but a piece of scrap silver cheered me up, shortly followed by a lovely signal that turned up my first hammy in 2 years and my 2nd Charles 1st 40 pence. I initially though it was a Viccy shilling but it is wafer thin and took me a while to ID. Then a few minutes later, a worn Viccy sixpence 1843 and a very chuffed me!! Later, when comparing my two 40-pences, there are differences that my Scottish coin Spink book doesnt make clear, I have tried to show these in the image. Any thoughts?? Thanks for reading.
