First Hammy in two years of detecting!
« on: March 05, 2017, 10:42:31 AM »
Finally, and last dig of the evening dug my first Hammy in a stubble field of a local permission adjacent to a ancient/medieval road. Think it is a 'long cross' but no idea of King, mint or age, anyone help?

Congratulations on your first. Can't help you on the ID, but can tell you that it's possible to post on forum straight from the Bucket ... although I've made them too large, perhaps.

Thank you Poker3man on ID, much appreciated. Earliest I have in coins are 2 Viccy sixpences dated 1839 and 1840. Got a Turner 2 weeks ago but can only make out part of Thistle. Cheers Dash and John, hopefully persistence will win the day and get a few more of different variety. John, how do you copr straight from Photobucket to show images?
