My First EVER Hammered Silver!
« on: March 24, 2017, 05:59:37 PM »
Dear all,

I only joined DS last week (I've been detecting solo for two years) and have just dug my first ever silver... and it's hammered! If at all possible, could someone please ID this for me? I need to go and have a cup of tea before I blow a gasket!

Many thanks,

G

Many, many thanks for this ID. It is hugely appreciated. All the kind messages I've received have made this find even more special.  :)
