Birthday Hoard
« on: January 26, 2019, 12:00:32 AM »
Hi all,
Tomorrow is my 5oth birthday and as an early present the detecting gods sent me my first coin hoard!
Found in woodland in Argyll, six lovely milled silvers:
Louis 14th demi-ecu (1652),
Charles II quarter dollar (1676),
4 x Charles II Merk (1669, 1669, 1669, 167?).

Found with my trusty old Whites M6 with the 15x12 SEF coil.
Thanks for looking.
Cheers Ewan

What a great birthday present, was gonna say I hope you have a great day but looks like you've just had it lol.
TT will like to see these..... not often we see post medieval hoards pop up so it's good to get a swatch when they do.

Congrats
4 coin hoards.
