I wait a year to find my first silver hammered coin then in the space of 4 days I find two. The first one was a King Edward I penny (Exeter mint - rare) - in previos detecting video and the one I found today was a King Henry VIII half groat (London mint - I think).
Apart from the finds in the video there was also a small bronze? ring and a silver book clasp but I left those in my trousers and they went in the wash so I forgot about them - Will put them on the end finds update video coming soon.
Other club members also found a few hammered coins, georgian & victorian coins, a silver thimble and there was a nice decorative medieval ring recovered too.
If I think on, I will put as many club finds as I can photograph on one of my videos.
Detector I used was a Minelab Etrac using the 'Roman Coin' pattern. Although I started with the 18" x 15" SEF coil, I found that the cleaner signals came from the 11" stock coil - Thats what I made most of my finds with.
The hammered coin gave a 13-15 signal and was approx 4" deep.
