Let's start the ball rolling with a big 'WELL DONE!!!' to Paddy for this little beauty of a Latvian/Swedish CHRISTINA RIGA SOLIDUS SILVER COIN 1632-1654 (Schilling).

An absolute gem. Rare to see toning on silver hammered like this.

A massive thank you to Coinage Britannia (You Tube) for ID'ing this like it was a penny in his pocket!

More pics to come when I clean my own finds up but I took some coppers and silver home with me. A nice Cap badge rounded off a lot of decent finds from a great dig!

I'm currently picture finishing, if you've got any to add of your finds today, please do! If I don't credit the finder in my shots, I'll ask who it was. If someone knows please let me know so I can update the finder credits! Cheers.

It is a lovely wee coin, on a note about my day I have never dug so much in a day it was great. I think I had more coppers today than I have collected since starting detecting but I think my find of the day was my half military badge.

The tin just after the hammered is mine. 

No silver today but a first for me with a Cartwheel Penny, so, happy with that :D

Am too bloody tired to photograph stuff so will add in next few days- that was a helluva lot of digging!  Also found an intact wee lead soldier crouching down with rifle- British Army and is wearing a kilt .  heheh.
If at first you don't succeed... deny you were ever trying!

Hi everyone

Many thanks for making me welcome at the dig, for my first organised dig I was very happy, I thought it was a trade token so I am very happy to find out it is a silver hammered.  I also retrieved a bale seal, a 1915 silver sixpence and some unidentified coins, and lots of lead.

Cheers for the ID and I am surprised its that old, it was small and is very thin.

Cheers  :D
